Virat Kohli's treacherous run in the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup continued against the United States as he registered only the second golden duck of his T20 international career on Wednesday, June 12. Kohli, who scored 1 and 4 in the first two games against Ireland and Pakistan respectively, was dismissed by USA left-arm pacer Saurabh Netravalkar on the first delivery he faced as he tried to chase a wide delivery outside the off-stump and got a faint edge through to the keeper.

This was Kohli's sixth duck in T20Is, which is the second most for India in T20Is after skipper Rohit Sharma's 12. Kohli was tied on five ducks with KL Rahul and has surpassed him now. Kohli also became the eighth Indian player to register a golden duck in T20 World Cup as he joined an elite list that includes the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik and Suresh Raina among others.
