Getting out without contributing to the scorecard is perhaps one of the most frustrating things in cricket. In cricketing terms, it is called ‘getting out for a Duck’ or simply a ‘Duck’. The walk back to the pavilion seems longer and full of embarrassment and frustration after getting out for a ‘Duck. ’The only thing worse than getting out for a Duck is to get out for a ‘Golden Duck’. A Golden Duck is when the batsman gets out on a Duck and that too on the first ball he/she faces. One thing for sure, no batsmen in the world will want their name up in the list of most Ducks. It is a record that every cricketer will shy away from.

‘Ducks’ are equally possible in any format of cricket. It’s not something unimaginable to happen. When a batsman is new to the crease, he has no first-hand idea of the pitch conditions, the ball swing and several other similar conditions. He doesn’t even have what we call to ‘have one’s eye set’ in the cricket world. All such things makes the batsman more vulnerable to getting out.

The Indian Premier League is the biggest T20 franchise cricket extravaganza in the world. The tally for most ducks in the IPL reveals interesting factoids. The general deduction on the basis of the fact that it is actually a testimonial for batting inefficacy, bowlers are supposed to feature more in the said list. But on the contrary, batsmen dominate this list more than the bowlers. What is more shocking is many of the batsmen featuring in this list are in fact opening batsmen.
