During the ongoing Super 8 match in the T20 World Cup 2024 between India and Australia, star India batter Virat Kohli once again failed to get going as he departed for a five-ball duck. 

Incidentally, this is the second time Kohli has been dismissed on duck in the ongoing mega-event. 

The dynamic right-hander has struggled to perform so far after being promoted to the opening slot in the T20 World Cup 2024 managing scores of 1,4 and 0 in the group stages. 

He looked in a better touch once the Super 8s started managing scores of 24 (24) and 37 off 28 against Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively but still, his knocks weren't as damaging. 

He couldn't get going once again in the critical clash against Australia tonight as fans were left rueing after the dismal outing. 

Check some of the best reactions below. 

Rohit Sharma make amends for early setback

The Aussie bowlers started on a strong note, getting the better of Kohli in the second over to put India on the backfoot early. After Kohli's dismissal, Rishabh Pant walked out to the middle but he too failed to get going, departing for a 14-ball 15. 

However, skipper Rohit Sharma took over the onus of scoring and made amends for the early setback, looking in blistering touch as he moves to 70s now. 

Speaking about the match, the India scoreboard currently read 93 for 2 in 8 overs with Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav at the crease.
