That's Virat Kohli's scores in the ongoing series against Australia. Ending the confusion over whether he will able to bat at his usual position or not, Kohli walked in at No. 4 but once again got dismissed cheaply. He edged Pat Cummins to none other than Steve Smith -- and the Australian captain could not hide his joy.
The send off from the Australians did not go down with some fans, while some saw no issue with it. There was also a lot of disappointment that Kohli could not make it count with the bat again.
So Smith mocked Kohli's injury after taking the catch .... Bas Virat fit ho jaaye to field in the next innings sabko send off dena hai ab— Virat Kohli💪💪💪 (@iam_adi_thebest) March 18, 2017

Kohli is having a nightmare similar to England 2014 in this series #INDvAUS— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) March 18, 2017
Kohli is no saint. He likes to rub it into the opposition. If he likes to give it, then he should be able to take it too. #indvaus— Ánkit Damania (@punterankit) March 18, 2017

For Aussies, however, Kohli's run of form gave great joy.

Kohli is living one massive own goal— Dennis Kohli (@DennisCricket_) March 18, 2017
Kohli played the man and not the ball from the start of series. Hasn't been able to back it up with actions. Distracted himself and team.— Adam White (@White_Adam) March 18, 2017
Kohli: caught Smith, lolled Maxwell, 6.#IndvAus— Geoff Lemon Sport (@GeoffLemonSport) March 18, 2017

Everyone in Australia should be clapping Kohli off now 😂😂👏👏👏👏 #IndvAus— Matt (@Mattys123) March 18, 2017
It was very brave for Kohli to come out and bat when clearly he was inconvenienced by that many Indian tongues in his arse.#INDvAUS— dave your legs (@cricketflog) March 18, 2017
But some fans know class is permanent, form is temporary.
0, 6 or a 100.Runs don't matter. The fact that you came out to bat with a strained shoulder shows your Love for the nation.#IndvAus #Kohli— Prajakta Bhawsar (@Virats_Fangirl) March 18, 2017
