‘This is what pressure does to you’-Twitter reacts as Virat Kohli scores a four ball duck against Sri Lanka

'This is what pressure does to you'-Twitter reacts as Virat Kohli scores a four ball duck against Sri Lanka

During India’s Super 4 match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday at Dubai International Stadium, India suffered an early setback when they lost KL Rahul and Virat Kohli’s wickets in quick succession. This put India in a difficult position. After being given the opportunity to bat first, India got off to the worst possible start as Maheesh Theekshana got Rahul out leg before wicket in the second over of India’s innings, bringing the team’s total to 11/1. The departure of India’s top batter Virat Kohli, who was clean bowled for a duck by Dilshan Madushanka in the third over, leaving Team India floundering at 13/2, was the thing that upset the spectators more than anything else.

Kohli, who had earlier displayed his vintage form during the match against Pakistan with his knock of 60 runs off of 44 balls, completely failed to judge Madhushanka’s delivery and lost his stumps while attempting a cross-batted stroke of a good length delivery that moved slightly after pitching.

Dasun Shanaka, the captain of Sri Lanka, won the toss and elected to field first. Rohit Sharma said that he, too, would have preferred to bowl first if given the opportunity. After suffering some early wickets, Rohit and his squad are going to face a formidable obstacle in their attempt to stage a comeback.

Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav stitched together a formidable partnership and brought India back to the game. Indian fans will be hoping that the partnership continues for a long time.
