Virat Kohli was once again dismissed cheaply in the ongoing India vs New Zealand Test series. The Indian captain was dismissed for just three runs on the opening day of the second India vs New Zealand Test. To make matters worst, Kohli opted for DRS (Decision Review System) which eventually was wasted. Tim Southee trapped the Indian skipper in front of the wickets to leave India at 85 for three.

In three ODIs, he managed just 75 runs and now is struggling to get going in the longer format as well.
