Duck in cricket means getting out without scoring a single run and golden duck means to get out on the very first ball of your innings. It is obvious that no batsmen want to get out without scoring a single run but sometimes that single run is way more difficult than to score a hundred. So, in this article, we are here with an unwanted record of Indian batsmen with the most number of international ducks.
#5 Yuvraj Singh
Yuvraj Singh was a great batsman for India. He mostly batted in the middle order where he was forced to play spinners and rough balls from fast bowlers. Yuvraj Singh had 26 international ducks in his career.
#4 Sourav Ganguly
Ganguly’s era was of great bowlers to whom every batsman was afraid to face. Ganguly played on almost every batting position for his team. He was gone for a duck 29 times in his career.
#3 Virender Sehwag
Former left-handed opening batsman Sehwag was a very aggressive cricketer of his time who likes to deliver every ball into the stands. Sehwag was also an opener and openers always have to face the new ball which sometimes gets unplayable. Sehwag has 31 international ducks in his career.
#2 Virat Kohli
We have hardly seen Virat Kohli getting out for a duck but in past few years, we have seen a lack of confidence in his batting and due to which Kohli sometimes threw away his wicket for a duck. Kohli has 32 international ducks in his career so far.
