Virat Kohli last 10 innings: The Indian captain failed to play a substantial innings in the World Test Championship final 2021.
During the sixth day of the ongoing final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton, India captain Virat Kohli became the first batsman to get out on the reserve day.
Resuming from his overnight score of 8*, Kohli never looked in his usual sublime touch especially against his Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Kyle Jamieson.
His brief uncomfortable stay in the middle eventually saw him edging a Jamieson delivery to New Zealand wicket-keeper BJ Watling in the 36th over. Having scored 13 (29) in the second innings, Kohli fell to Jamieson for the second time in the World Test Championship final.
With India losing Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara (15) in quick succession, they are doubtlessly in a spot of bother after the first hour of the last day. With vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant in the middle, India would be hoping for a stable partnership which prevents them from losing further wickets.
Virat Kohli last 10 innings runs
Kohli, whose last Test century had come against Bangladesh in a pink-ball Test back in 2019, has now gone 14 innings without a crossing the 100-run mark in the format.
As far as his last 10 innings is concerned, Kohli has scored 307 runs at an average and strike rate of 30.70 and 42.57 respectively with the help of three half-centuries.

Oh no! 😓 Kohli can’t properly connect Jamieson’s delivery outside off-stump and it goes straight to Watling.
He departs after adding 13 on the board.
