IPL is the number one T20 tournament in the world. It is the goal of every cricketer to feature in this league, but not every player can capture the golden opportunity. The Indian Premier League is the place, where the bowlers trouble the batters a lot.

Also, the pressure of the T20 format forces the batters to play aggressively, and at times, it results in the batter getting out for a duck as well. It is quite embarrassing to get out for a duck in any IPL match. Millions of viewers tune in every night to watch the matches. Hence, the players aim to bring their best to the table every evening.

As is the nature of cricket, the best performance does not come out every day, and sometimes, the batters end up getting out for zero as well. Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell owns the record for the most ducks by a foreign batter in the league’s history, having registered 17 scores of zero.

2. Rohit Sharma – 17 ducks in IPL

The second position on this list belongs to former Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma. The right-handed batter has won six trophies in his career. He has helped his teams win many matches, but there have been 17 instances, where the Hitman could not even get off the mark.

1. Dinesh Karthik – 18 ducks

Dinesh Karthik has become the new undisputed owner of the unwanted record for the most ducks in the league’s history. The current Royal Challengers Bengaluru batter has been dismissed for a duck 18 times. No other batter – be it Indian or overseas – has gotten out for zero so many times.
