Every player wants to the maximum number of runs in each match but sometimes they are unlucky as they are dismissed without opening their account. The most humiliating thing for any batsman is getting dismissed without even scoring a single run in the match. In IPL there have been many batsmen that are dismissed without opening their account not once by many times. This is the one record that you would want to have your name.
There are many reasons for getting dismissed without opening the account like you get the ripper of a delivery in first few balls of your inning. Also, there are lots of pressure on the batsman to score at a fast rate. This sometimes causes them to play silly shots and gift their wicket to opposition. So, let’s see the top 5 batsmen with the maximum duck in IPL so far.
5. Amit Mishra
The man from Delhi comes at the no 5 position. He has played 112 matches in the IPL so far and is dismissed 10 times without opening his account. He is not a genuine batsman so he could be exempted for getting out at 0.
4. Manish Pandey
It’s like the KKR player loves to get out at 0. This is the third Kolkata player in the top 5. Manish has played 89 matches in the IPL so far and is dismissed 11 times without scoring. This is the poor performance by this player as he is a genuine batsman who comes in the middle stage of the inning.
3. Piyush Chawla
The third position is occupied the Indian leg spinner, Piyush Chawla. He has played 123 matches in the IPl so far and is dismissed 11 times without troubling the scorecard. The left-hand batsman likes to play good cameo with the bat but he will not be happy of getting dismissed at 0.
2. Gautam Gambhir
The second position is occupied by the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders. He ahs played 132 matches in IPL so far and is dismissed 12 times without scoring. He has a valid reason for that as he opens the inning for his team. As an opener, you have to face the new ball which is very difficult and it’s easy to get out on first few deliveries of your inning.
1. Harbhajan Singh
The terminator Harbhajan top the list of batsmen with the maximum duck in IPL. Harbhajan has played 125 matches in the IPL so far and was dismissed 12 times without opening his account. He is the one bowler who looks to hit the ball out of the park and would not be happy with this record.
