Quiz! Name all bowlers who have dismissed Virat Kohli in World Cups

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

Die-hard Virat Kohli fans – this quiz is for you! Can you name all the bowlers who have dismissed Kohli across three World Cups?

Before he was regarded a short-format superstar, Kohli played the 2011 World Cup as a 22-year-old, making an instant impact with a century in his very first game. He’s gone on to play two more editions – in 2015 and 2019 – and with 1,030 runs, has the second-highest runs-tally by an Indian batsman after the great Sachin Tendulkar.

He’s been dismissed 22 times in World Cup matches (including a run-out against Ireland in 2011). Can you rack your brains and recall all bowlers who have claimed his wicket across the three editions?
