Southee traps Kohli again and an interesting DRS stat!

It was yet another failure for Virat Kohli on this tour with the India skipper falling to his nemesis Tim Southee.

Southee dismissed Kohli in the first ball after the lunch break on the opening day of the second and final Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday.

Kohli, who has scored just 204 runs in 10 innings on this tour, was caught plumb in front of the wicket. However, he wasted the only available review before walking back. 

A full delivery to start from Southee on middle, swinging in. Kohli looking to drive misses and gets hit on the pads. Southee and the rest appeal and the umpire obliged raising the dreaded finger.  

Interestingly, Kohli has now used DRS on 13 occasions in Tests after being given out LBW. Only two of them have been successful.

Southee is the first bowler to dismiss Kohli on 10 occasions across all formats in international cricket. England's James Anderson and Graeme Swann have dismissed Kohli eight times each.
