'Take rest big man' - Virat Kohli gets out for another golden duck; disappointed fans react

Virat Kohli's insipid IPL 2022 continued with his third golden duck for the tournament. 
 
Where is the Virat Kohli of old?

After 12 innings for RCB in IPL 2022, Virat Kohli has scored just 216 runs while averaging 19.63 with a strike-rate of 111.23. 

Virat Kohli's horrific IPL 2022 continued with another golden duck to his name against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday (May 8) afternoon. 

The ex Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper got out the first ball after top-edging an attempted on-side flick straight into the hands of the close-in fielder. 

Facing SRH left-arm spinner Jagdish Suchith's ball down leg, Kohli went for a shot through the on-side but miscued it at a comfortable height for Kane Williamson at the short mid-wicket region. 

It was a sorry sight for fans and even the commentators, who felt bad for the Indian great as he suffered yet another failure in the tournament. 

Once again, Virat Kohli was perhaps guilty of going at the ball without reaching to the pitch of it and flashing at it with hard hands.

Walking to the middle with his usually determined streak, Virat Kohli took guard first ball against Suchith, eyeing some time in the middle and a significant score to his name. As it turned out, however, he was in for yet another failure after top-edging a delivery straight into the hands of Williamson. 

Kohli was made to do a long walk back before even getting his eye in after erring with his attempted stroke through the on-side and hitting the ball right into the hands of the waiting SRH captain at short mid-wicket. 

The moment Kohli got out, dismayed fans vented out their frustration on social media, tweeting in displeasure over their favourite star's latest failure with bat in hand. Here is how some of them reacted:-
