Less than a month remains until the T20I World Cup. The world’s biggest T20 tournament will start on October 16 in Australia. Players will set new records during the tournament. The players would also try to avoid having any embarrassing records to their names at the same time.
One of the most devastating outcomes in international cricket is being dismissed without scoring a run. The most destructive form of cricket, Twenty20, makes being a duck even more devastating for the batsmen.
- Rohit Sharma – 9
One of the best batsmen in the modern era of cricket for limited overs is Rohit Sharma. He holds the record for the joint-fastest T20I century in addition to having three ODI double centuries to his credit. However, Rohit has a humiliating T20I record. Rohit Sharma now has nine ducks in T20Is, the most by an Indian batsman. He was dismissed for a golden duck against South Africa on Wednesday.
- KL Rahul – 5
KL Rahul is in poor form at the moment. On September 28, 2022, in Trivandrum, India’s first T20I match against South Africa, Rahul had a good opportunity to attack from the start. But Rahul struggled to get going from the start in the 106-run chase, and as a result, received harsh criticism from fans on Twitter. Rahul continues to struggle against both pace and spin, and the Team India supporters on Twitter criticized him for not trying to fend off the South African bowlers. In T20I cricket, Rahul has the second-most ducks among Indian batsmen.
- Virat Kohli – 4
Virat Kohli, the former Indian captain, was dismissed against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 stage game after four balls for a duck. It was Kohli’s fourth T20I duck of his career. However, Kohli has since recovered, scoring a fantastic century against Afghanistan and playing a match-winning innings against Australia.
