IPL: List of batsmen that Virat Kohli has dismissed in the IPL
It is always a great sight for fans to watch their favorite batsmen roll their arm over. In fact, there have been occasions when these crowd-favorite batsmen are cheered more for their bowling than batting.
Virat Kohli is one of them. His dibbly-dobbly medium pace has proved handy on occasions when a regular bowler has had an off-day. Throughout his IPL career, Virat Kohli has picked up just 4 wickets with the best bowling figures of 2/25.
The few batsmen he has dismissed have been big wickets, coming at a crucial juncture of the game. Let us take a look at the list of batsmen that Virat has dismissed in the IPL.
#1 Chamara Silva
Sri Lankan batsman Chamara Silva was Virat Kohli's first IPL victim. Kohli dismissed the Deccan Chargers batsman in 51st match of the inaugural edition of the IPL for a duck to bag his first IPL wicket.
It happened at the Rajiv Gandhi National Stadium, Hyderabad on May 25, 2008. Silva was stumped by Sreevats Goswami. Because of Kohli's lack of pace, the wicket-keeper was standing up to the stumps.
There was more to come for Virat with the ball in the same match which we will see in the next slide.
