Virat Kohli is the only Bowler who took a Wicket on 0th ball. In a T20I match against England in 2011, Virat was bowling to Kevin Pietersen. He ended bowling a wide first ball and Pietersen who was charging down was stumped down the leg-side by MS Dhoni. So, Kohli didn’t bowl a single ball in international cricket as his first ball was a wide but since a stumping goes in the account of the bowler, he had a wicket!
Hence, effectively, Kohli had a wicket off the “0th” ball of his career.
