The recent years have been disappointing for Virat Kohli. All the work that he did before is getting undone now. His average is dropping and he is also getting into the list of unwanted records. Recently, Virat Kohli has equalled the record to take the first spot in a list, which he would not have liked to be a part of. In this article, we take a look at an interesting piece of stat according to which, Virat Kohli has goth the most ducks in International cricket since his debut.
Most ducks in International cricket since his debut
In the second ODI against South Africa, Virat Kohli fell for a duck. Batting first, it was expected that Virat would continue the good form that he showed in the first encounter. However, Keshav Maharaj managed to pick the former Indian skipper’s wicket, with the scorers not getting disturbed. Like in the first ODI, it was South African skipper Temba Bavuma who completed the catch to dismiss Virat.
With this, Virat is now at the top of the list with respect to the number of international ducks after he made his debut. Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal also has 31 ducks and shares the top position with Virat. Martin Guptill, Mohammad Hafeez, and Moeen Ali are the other players on this list.

Virat Kohli’s form has been underwhelming
Virat Kohli has unfortunately not been in good form in recent years. It has been more than two years since he has got a century. For a player who used to smack centuries for fun, this barren run was not forecasted. While he has been managing to get the fifties, the three-figure mark has been eluding him. Virat has also developed a few weaknesses such as playing spin and tackling deliveries outside the off-stump. It needs to be seen if he shall address them, now that he is devoid of captaincy duties.
