Virat Kohli failed with the bat once again in IPL 2022 on Sunday. He was dismissed for a first-ball duck by Sunrisers Hyderabad left-arm orthodox Jagadeesha Suchith at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Suchith bowled the first ball of the innings on Kohli’s pads and the latter flicked it straight to short midwicket to continue his miserable form in the ongoing season.
