Team India's talismanic batter Virat Kohli poor form in T20 World Cup 2024 continues as he has been dismissed cheaply in the T20 World Cup 2024 semifinal against England at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday, June 27.

After putting to bat first by England skipper Jos Buttler, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were looking to provide a good start to Team India in the first innings. On the second ball of the third over, Kohli flicked his bat over the mid-wicket and went soaring over the ropes off Reece Topley delivery.

However, Topley had the last laugh as he dismissed Kohli for 9 on the fifth ball of the third over to give England the first breakthrough. Virat Kohli walked back to the pavilion with disappointment on his face as he couldn't deliver his best in an all-important semifinal against the defending champions.

As soon as Virat Kohli was dismissed cheaply, Indian cricket fans took their social media handles, especially X (formerly Twitter) and slammed him for being too aggressive and blind slogging on every ball, while others trolled him for his poor run of form in this edition of the T20 World Cup.

Here's how fans reacted to Virat Kohli's cheap dismissal

Virat Kohli has been enduring unforgettable campaign in this T20 World Cup as he couldn't even score 40 runs in seven matches so far. After registering scores of 1, 4, and 0 in the first round, Kohli had a decent outing with the bat in India's opening Super 8 match against Afghanistan, scoring 24 off 24 balls.

In the next match against Bangladesh, the 35-year-old gradually returned to his form as played an innings of 37 off 28 balls to help India post a total of 196/5. However, in India's final Super 8 fixture against Australia, Kohli was dismissed for a five-bal duck.

In the T20 World Cup 2024, Kohli has managed to score only 75 runs at an average of 10.71 and a strike rate of 100 in seven matches.
