Virat Kohli’s blemishes with the bat in Test cricket got worse when he got out for a duck in the rain-hit first day of the first Test against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens yesterday.
The duck against Sri Lanka was Kohli’s fifth this year which got him in the list of Indian captains with most number of ducks in a calendar year.
Along with Kohli, Kapil Dev holds the undesirable record that he achieved in 1983 after 31 games.
Kohli came on to bat when Shikhar Dhawan was bowled by Suranga Lakmal for 8 runs.
The Indian captain faced 11 balls in total, which included a stoppage of play due to bad light, before getting trapped leg before wicket by Lakmal.
