Six Bowlers Who Have Dismissed Virat Kohli Across Formats
Indian Skipper Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen of the modern era. The consistent performer is unbeatable once he sets himself at the crease. The right-hand batsman Kohli has scored more than 20,000 runs that include 70 centuries in international cricket. Besides, he averages more than 50 in every format.
Moreover, he is near to break the record of his idol Sachin Tendulkar, who has 100 centuries to his name across formats. Currently, Kohli holds No.1 position in ODIs and Tests in the ICC Men’s ranking.
On the contrary, there are very rare occasions when you see Kohli getting out in all the formats by the same bowler. But we should not forget that everyone has some flaws.
In this article, we have discussed bowlers who have troubled Kohli on the field and picked his wickets in all three formats; T20Is, ODIs and Tests.
Here are the six bowlers who have dismissed Virat Kohli across formats:
Kagiso Rabada, South African fast bowler, is the speedster who has troubled Indian skipper in all the formats. In ODIs, the pacer has picked Kholi’s wicket two times in the same series. This incident happened in the 2015 ODI series where he picked the wicket of Kohli in the 4th and 5th match of the series respectively. In 5th ODI, Kohli was undone after just making seven runs.
While in the longest format, Rabada scalped the wicket of Kohli during India’s tour of South Africa back in 2018. In the second inning of the Test match, the youngster had hit the stumps of the skipper.
In the recent-held bilateral T20I series, the prominent bowler dismissed Kohli with his bowling attack at home.
Moreover, South Africa won the match and equalled the three-match T20I series with 1-1.
