Virat Kohli was dismissed for a first ball duck in Royal Challengers Bangalore's ongoing match against Sunrisers Hyderabad by Jagdeesha Suchtih. This was the 33-year-old's third golden duck of the season, after he registered two back to back against Lucknow Super Giants and SRH respectively last month.
Having walked back for a duck earlier today, Virat equalised an unwanted record of having the most number of golden ducks for a player in an IPL season. He is now the 13th player to register 3 golden ducks in an IPL season.
Besides, the former Indian and RCB captain is also only the fourth player to have pocketed three golden ducks in a season batting in top 5.
