Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, arguably two of the world's best batsmen, scored ducks in the Champions Trophy in consecutive days. While the South African captain failed to open his account against Pakistan on Wednesday, his Indian counterpart endured a similar fate against Sri Lanka on Thursday. As a result of this, both India and South Africa were stunned by their respective opponents and will now battle it out against one another on Sunday in a do-or-die encounter.

Interestingly, Twitter has a rather amusing theory behind the struggles of the two superstar batsmen. Cricket fans on the social micro-blogging site noticed a little trend, which suggested that a selfie with Pakistani sports presenter Zainab Abbas was the reason behind the duo failing to fire.

Here is Twitteratti had a bit of fun after Kohli and De Villiers scored ducks.

Pakistan take on Sri Lanka on Monday at Cardiff for a place in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy.
