Virat Kohli’s woes as opener at T20 World Cup 2024 continues, goes for golden duck vs USA

Ever since moving up as an opener, Virat Kohli has found runs hard to come by, with his latest failure coming against USA

Virat Kohli’s struggles at the top of the order in the T20 World Cup 2024 continued in nightmarish fashion against the USA on Wednesday. After scores of 1 and 4 in the previous matches, Kohli was dismissed for a golden duck, edging a delivery from Indian-origin pacer Saurabh Netravalkar to the wicketkeeper.

This latest dismissal puts immense pressure on Kohli and the Indian team management. The decision to open with Kohli, while lauded for his experience, has backfired so far. His characteristic weakness of chasing deliveries outside off stump was again on display, resulting in his third low score in as many matches.

Virat Kohli & his ordinary numbers in USA!

It looks like Virat Kohli, who enjoys dominating across venues, has a chink in the armor while playing in USA. In the 7 matches he has played in the Americas, the modern-day master has only mustered 68 runs at an awful average of 11.33 that too at a strike rate of less than 98.
