Players with most ducks in IPL history
When there is a need to hit the ball right from the word go in T20 cricket, there tend to be some failures, irrespective of the quality of the batsmen. Unlike One Day Internationals and Test match cricket, T20 gives no time for batsmen to settle down.
Some of the successful IPL stars such as Glenn Maxwell, Jack Kallis, Ambati Rayudu, Ajinkya Rahane and Aaron Finch features in the list of top-20 players with most ducks in IPL cricket. Interestingly, none of the overseas players features in the top 10.
On that note, let's take a look at the players with most ducks in IPL history.
