Virat Kolhi fails again
Avesh Khan came back strongly on the last ball of the over. It was just short of a length delivery as Kohli looked to play the late cut again, like he had done on the second ball of the over.
Bu this time, the width was too less to play that kind of stroke. Hence, Kohli was cramped for room. The ball met his inside edge and crashed into the off stump as it went out of the ground. No wonder, Avesh Khan was pumped after that dismissal and celebrated the wicket by screaming and making a fist.
Also, this means that the poor form of Virat Kohli continued and in 6 matches to date in this edition, Kohli has hit just a single fifty. At the time of his departure, The score of Royal Challengers Bangalore was 30-1 after 4 overs.
