Watch: Fans Reaction after Virat Kohli's Dismissal For Golden Duck vs RR

Virat Kohli was bowled for a golden duck during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday, leaving the Bengaluru audience stunned and in disbelief. Trent Boult produced a straight delivery that swung a little in the air and Kohli utterly missed the line, resulting in the dismissal on the very first ball of the game. The umpire made his ruling in favour of the bowler without any hesitation after the ball crashed into his pads. This was Kohli’s tenth duck overall in the IPL, seven of which were golden ducks.

Sanju Samson, the captain of the Rajasthan Royals (RR), won the toss and decided to field first. Whereas, Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the table-toppers Rajasthan Royals in the special “Go Green” match wearing a green uniform. RCB defeated Punjab Kings in the preceding match by a score of 24 runs, while RR suffered their second tournament loss to Lucknow Super Giants.

The RCB Wayne Parnell has been replaced by David Willey, while Faf du Plessis will continue to contribute as a key member of the team. RR will use the same playing XI for the game.

At the toss, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s stand-in skipper Virat Kohli said, “We would have batted first. It was a fairly obvious choice. This wicket appears dry and will likely become dryer before breaking. I didn’t tell Sanju that, but I’m thrilled to get to bat first.

We are both able to fulfil our desires. The last time they told me, I might have to captain a few games, but that’s nothing new for me. I’m glad to step in and carry on whatever Faf was accomplishing as a result. The team has reacted well, and it is clear from the past game that we are playing with a lot of enthusiasm.
