Southampton: Team India captain Virat Kohli was dismissed for 44 runs in the first innings against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final on Sunday. Kiwi fast bowler Kyle Jameson dismissed Kohli lbw on a fine inswing. The Indian captain scored 44 runs in 132 balls with the help of only one four. Virat Kohli batted against his nature in the WTC final, but he could not manage to play a big innings. Let us tell you that the first innings of Team India was all out for 217 runs.
Kohli once again failed to play a big innings and after this his shocking figure has come to the fore, which has taken the fans by surprise. The drought of the Indian captain’s century has reached 45 innings. Yes, in international cricket, Kohli has not been able to score a single century in the last 45 innings. Kohli’s last international century was against Bangladesh in the Day/Night Test, which was played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Not only this, Virat Kohli’s batting average has also seen a huge decline after January 1, 2020. By the way, the Indian captain’s Test career average has been more than 50. However, since January 2020, it has completely halved to 25.53. Virat Kohli has scored 332 runs in 13 innings of 8 Tests. Meanwhile, Kohli was successful in scoring half-centuries several times, but his century drought remained intact.
Let us tell you that in the World Test Championship final, captain Virat Kohli shared a 61-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane for the fourth wicket. This was India’s second half-century partnership in this Test. Earlier, openers Rohit Sharma (44) and Shubman Gill (28) shared a 62-run partnership for the first wicket.
Virat Kohli has failed to perform well in the major matches of ICC tournaments. It started with the 2015 World Cup when he was dismissed for just 1 run against Australia in the semi-finals. Then he flopped once again in the 2017 Champions Trophy final, the 2019 World Cup semi-final and now the World Test Championship final. It has to be seen that if Team India’s second innings comes, then Captain Kohli will be able to erase this stain.
