A bad phase is something which each and every player goes through. Being consistent throughout the career is too much to ask for, especially in the game of cricket. There are times when even world class players are out of their form and fail to deliver their best.
There are some top-order Indian batsmen who have succeeded in winning our hearts time and again with their powerful strokes, and also by contributing push their team over the line. But, these top order batsmen too face their share of bad phases or days. Walking back to the pavilion with no runs at all is disheartening for the fans for sure but it’s definitely much more disappointing for the players who work day and night to perform their best.
Sachin Tendulkar might hold the record of scoring the most number of runs in the history of the game but here is the list of 5 top-order Indian batsmen with the most number of ducks in their international career.
#5 Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina’s impressive ability to hit between the gaps in the field made him one of the most loveable among the new age Indian cricketers. He is known as the attacking left-handed batsman who generally goes for the big shots and possesses an extraordinary quality of performing brilliantly under pressure.
His tenacity to perform and contribute during the tough times has always made the team as well as the fans proud. His effortless aggressive shots made him one of the best batsmen in the world, in the shorter formats and he became the first Indian batsman to score tons in all three formats in the international cricket.
Despite such awesome performances, he also had to face his share of downs. Till now, in his 303 international matches, Raina has 26 ducks in total.
