The four-ball duck makes things a bit worse for Virat Kohli with his name getting registered in some unwanted record books.

Skipper Virat Kohli registered his name in some unwanted record books after a four-ball duck against New Zealand on Day 1 of the second Test at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. On his return after a brief break, Kohli failed to open his account as he was adjudged LBW on Ajaz Patel’s delivery. However, the dismissal raised several eyebrows as Kohli decided to take the review and it showed that the ball may have hit the bat first.

But the third umpire Virender Sharma felt that the evidence was inconclusive and asked the on-field umpire Anil Chaudhary to stick with his decision.

The Indian skipper wasn’t happy with the call as he had a chat with the on-field umpire Chaudhary before leaving the ground.  He also slammed his bat en route to the dressing room, showing his disapproval.

The TV cameras then caught him standing in the dressing room balcony, visibly upset with the decision, which was a touch and go one.

Mumbai-born New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel struck twice in the same over to dismiss India’s captain Virat Kohli and number three Cheteshwar Pujara for ducks in the second Test on Friday, leaving the hosts 111-3 at tea.

Left-arm Patel also picked up the first Indian wicket to fall, when Shubman Gill was caught by Ross Taylor at first slip after making 44.

The morning session of the match was wiped off due to wet outfield after overnight heavy rain.
