6 bowlers who have dismissed Virat Kohli in all three formats
Indian captain, Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the best batsmen in the history of cricket. With over 20,000 international runs in the last decade, there is no player who can match the consistency levels of Virat. He has set new benchmarks in the batting department thanks to his never ending hunger for runs.
Be it playing patiently in the red ball cricket or taking the charge in the limited overs format, Kohli can do it all. He is slowly inching towards Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most ODI hundreds apart from the bunch of records that the Delhi-born superstar has already shattered.
However, despite his dominance in the batting department, there have been a few bowlers who have troubled him with their skills. In fact, these players have got the better of Kohli in all three formats. Here is a list of those bowlers who have sent the right-handed batsman back to the pavilion in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.
#6 Pat Cummins (Australia)
The first name on the list is Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins. Cummins has often troubled Kohli with his bowling and even in the Test series played between the two teams earlier this year, Pat had dismissed him thrice.
The first time the Australian got the wicket of Virat in Tests was at Ranchi when the Aussies toured India in 2017.
As far as ODI cricket is concerned, Cummins has scalped the prized wicket of the Indian skipper only once. It happened during the 2nd ODI of the ODI series played in March 2019. Kohli had scored 116 runs before he was caught by Marcus Stoinis off the pacer's bowling.
While the aforementioned incidents took place in the recent past, the only occasion when the Australian claimed Virat's wicket in T20I cricket happened in 2012.
It was during a group stage match of the 2012 ICC World T20 where Cummins took the wicket at the R. Premadasa Stadium.
