Scoring runs in the ICC matches is absolutely imperative for both individuals and teams in the first place because it contributes vastly to the team’s success and the reputation of the cricketers. ICC Cricket World Cup, ICC T20 World Cup, and ICC Champions Trophy are some of the most prestigious tournaments in international cricket.
While the batters tend to create records with the bat, they also end up registering unwanted records. Most of the time, the tail-enders end up getting dismissed for a duck. At times, we have also seen even the best batters registering these unwanted records.
Let’s take a look at the four Indians who registered the most ducks in ICC limited-overs tournaments.
1. Ashish Nehra
Former Indian paceman Ashish Nehra might have created many records with the ball for India during the heydays of his cricketing career but at the same time, he registered an unwanted record with the bat. Nehra tops the list as he has registered as many as five ducks for India in ICC limited-overs tournaments.
