Melbourne, March 18: Virat Kohli disappointed millions of supporters when he chased a wide delivery from Bangladeshi pacer Rubel Hossain and edged it to wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim for just 3 runs off 4 balls. India lost their second wicket in the process at 79 in 17.5 overs. Opener Shikhar Dhawan was the first man to get out at 30 from 50 balls.
Kohli hasn't hit a fifty since his match-winning century against arch-rivals Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval in India's opening match of this year's World Cup.
Kohli had an excellent Test series against Australia before the World Cup but his form hasn't been the same in the limited over matches Down Under. He hasn't played as the expectations since that sublime knock against Pakistan.
On Wednesday, Kohli had tweeted about his actor girlfriend Anushka Sharma, praising her performance in NH10, her latest film that got released on March 13.
But did Kohli give an opportunity to Anushka to reciprocate? His wild drive at an off-target delivery didn't mean he was intending so.
