Indian skipper Virat Kohli didn’t enjoy a great comeback with the bat in the 1st India vs Bangladesh Test 2019 as he was dismissed for a second-ball duck. The 31-year old failed to read an inswinger from Abu Jayed and was adjudged LBW by the umpire. This is the third instance when the 31-year old has departed without scoring in home Tests. Kohli, who was rested for the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, came into bat after the fall of Cheteshwar Pujara’s wicket. However, his stay in the crease proved out to be a short one and the veteran will be gutted from himself. The cricket fans were also left awestruck by Kohli's rare failure and reacted on social media. India Vs Bangladesh, Live Cricket Score 1st Test Match.
Nevertheless, Kohli is the number two ranked Test batsman and tends to bounce back quickly after a dismal performance. He was in phenomenal form during the three-match Test series against South Africa which India won 3-0. He also scored a terrific double-century in the second Test and brought up his highest Test score (254). However, his first outing against the Bangla Tigers didnt go according to his expectations and let's see what Twitterati has to say about it. India vs Bangladesh Latest Scorecard.

A rarest of rare event today as the Indian captain goes for a 🦆 😶, not the start team India wanted and not the incoming delivery @imVkohli wanted either.
So will @ajinkyarahane88 stabilize the turbulence?

Earlier in the match, Bangladesh were packed for mere 150 runs after opting to bat first in the match. In reply, Rohit Sharma fell early for six runs. However, Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agrawal played steadily and brought the Indian innings back on track. Both batsmen reached their respective half-centuries and helped the hosts cross the 100 run mark. Pujara, however, was dismissed for 52 while Agarwal is still going on. After Kohli’s departure, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has arrived on the crease and will eye to put a giant partnership with the opener and guide India to a massive first innings total.
