5 players with most golden ducks in Test cricket
- A closer look at 5 cricketers who got out for ducks off the first ball they faced the most number of times.
#4 Chris Martin: 9
The former New Zealand seam bowler had been an integral part of the Test team during the noughties and while his bowling was decent, it was Chris Martin’s comical incompetence as a batsman that has turned him into a cult figure of sorts.
A batting average of 2.37 is a testament to his abilities as a batsman and a tally of as many as 36 ducks in only 71 Test matches definitely gives him a strong claim to the crown of the worst number 11 in Test cricket history.
He holds the record for having the highest number of pairs in Test history as well but in addition to that Martin has also made as many as 9 golden ducks in his career.Published 27 Mar 2018, 00:01 IST
