Bowlers whose maiden T20 wicket was Virat Kohli
#4 Mitchell Marsh, Australia
When: India vs Australia, 2nd T20I, Melbourne Cricket Ground, 2012
Earmarked for higher honors after leading Australia to the U19 World Cup title in 2010, Mitchell Marsh, Australia's preferred all-rounder made his T20I debut at the age of 19 against South Africa at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.
Marsh though had to wait until the second T20I against India in February of 2012 for his first wicket.
India needed to win the second T20I in a bid to level the series, and they were on track to achieve that when they restricted the Aussies to 131. In reply, the Indians were going along swiftly with Gambhir (56 off 60 balls) and Virat Kohli (31 off 24 balls) putting on a 54 run stand for the second wicket.
However, Marsh, with his extra pace, struck gold by inducing an edge off Kohli's bat. Marsh's maiden wicket wasn't enough for his team though as India romped home with eight wickets remaining, but the feat that he achieved shall remain sacred for the young all-rounder for the rest of his career.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 15:00 IST
