A lukewarm restart to Kohli’s back-to-form innings as he walked early against Australia in the first T20I.
Kohli is touted to have regained his lost aura as a run machine and was believed to go great guns after a prolific Asia Cup 2022's campaign.
That wasn’t the case as he was dismissed shortly after his arrival on the crease at the score of 2 off 7 in a bid to break the deadlock of runs off Nathan Ellis.
At his well-established position of no. 3 Kohli strolled in on the pitch after India lost skipper Rohit Sharma for 11 runs.
His innings didn’t find its footing as Zampa restrained him with the tight bowling which had Kohli floundering.
After seeing off Zampa, Kohli tried to charge at Nathan Ellis but he chipped a full delivery straight to Cameron Green cutting his innings short.
Trudging back to pavilion Kohli was visibly crestfallen as his stellar records against Australia witnessed a blemish.
Kohli’s outstanding record of runs against Australia in T20IS remains unparalleled that boasts a total of 750 runs with an amazing average of 55.
