Quick question: Which West Indian player ever went 51 innings without registering a duck? I guess we have some time to see this! Australia’s Jason Behrendorff caught and bowled Virat Kohli to become the first man to send the India captain walking for a duck in a T20I. Virat Kohli recorded his first duck after playing in his 52nd Twenty20 internationals on Tuesday.
Prior to the match Kohli averaged an amazing 54.57 in the shortest format of the game. The 28-year-old feathered an in-swinging delivery from Behrendorff that looped up off his pad and was caught by the left-armer as he rushed forward. It was the seamer’s second wicket and came off just the sixth delivery of the match. India then got to the modest total of 118 after 20 overs.
This copped of an amazing feat that we can all wish future West Indians can aspire to.
