Indian cricket's pin-up boy Virat Kohli is steadily going from hero to zero in the Indian Premier League 2014. The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain has so far had a poor run with the bat and shares a dubious distinction with former Indian opener and Kolkata Knight Riders captain, Gautam Gambhir. Both have scored three ducks in the IPL 2014.
While Gambhir is slowly getting back to his form, Kohli has struggled to score. Luck has also not been on his side as he has seemingly been at the wrong end of umpiring blunders. He has scored 154 at an average of 17.11 in 10 innings, way below his lofty standards in limited overs cricket.
Is the pressure of captaincy telling on Kohli? Former Indian Test captain Sourav Ganguly thinks form and captaincy are inter-connected.
