Just like his team, Virat Kohli has also endured a horrible time in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. Royal Challengers Bangalore became the first team to get knocked out of the tournament this year and to make the matters worse, their inspirational skipper also looked off-colour in most of the matches.

After missing the first three matches of the season with a shoulder injury, the right-handed batsman made a brilliant comeback, scoring 62 runs in his first match against Mumbai Indians. However, he failed to sustain that form in the following games and managed to score only 188 runs in the next outings.

But he had the chance to bow out of the tournament on a high with a good knock during his team’s final game against Delhi Daredevils, which is currently taking place at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Prior to the IPL, Kohli also endured a horrible time in the Test series against Australia, where he had managed only 46 runs in three Tests and a good knock in the final game would have surely done a world of good for his confidence, as he gears up for the all-important ICC Champions Trophy.

And the Delhi-born looked in his elements right from the start at his home ground. The beautiful cover-drives and the flicks were coming out every now and then, as he raced to 58 off just 44 balls with the help of three fours and as many well-timed sixes.

The 28-year old batsman had his eyes set and with just four overs remaining and 118 runs on the board, he tried to up the ante. And in doing so, he lofted the third ball of the 17th over bowled by Zaheer Khan but his shot did not come out as expected and the ball went straight into the hands of Shahbaz Nadeem at long-off.

As expected, Kohli was furious with his shot and vented his frustration by shouting the f-word before leaving the ground disappointed.

Here is a clip of his dismissal:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
