India captain Virat Kohli got out for a rare first-ball duck in the second ODI against West Indies in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. By the time the star batsman took guard, Rohit Sharma and K.L. Rahul had taken India to 227 in 37 overs.
It was Kohli’s 13 ODI duck in his 11-year career.
Kieron Pollard got King Kohli with his go-to slower short ball. Kohli went for a pull, only to find Roston Chase at mid-wicket.
