Just when it looked like Virat Kohli was returning to form, the former Indian captain endured another failure as an opener. Australian new-ball seamer Josh Hazlewood got the better of him as Kohli tried to go for the pull and miscued it to the wind to depart for a five-ball duck in T20 World Cup Super 8 clash in St. Lucia. In the process, the netizens want the right-hander to drop down the batting order.

The dismissal occurred in the 2nd over of the innings as Kohli decided to break the shackles after four dot balls. The former Indian captain took on the short-pitched delivery from Josh Hazlewood, but miscued at as Tim David covered some excellent ground to take the catch. The right-handed batter looked to be appearing in some form after a 28-ball 37 against Bangladesh, but suffered yet another failure in the high-voltage clash.

Here's how the netizens have reacted to Virat Kohli's five-ball duck against Australia in T20 World Cup 2024:

Mitchell Marsh wins toss and opts to field first:

With Australia facing a do-or-die task against India in St.Lucia, the toss fell in their favour as Marsh opted to field first, claiming that the pitch looks like a 'belter;. Should India beat Australia in St.Lucia, they will join England and South Africa as the semi-finalists, with Australia getting potentially knocked out.

India playing XI: Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah.

Australia playing XI: Travis Head, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh(c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
