Getting out for a duck is a big humiliation for any batsman. If a player loses his wicket without scoring a single run in any match, it is termed as a duck. Recently, Indian players Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan lost their wicket for a duck during the T20I series against Sri Lanka. When a player loses his wicket for a duck, it causes a huge disappointment to him as he fails to contribute to any run to the team’s total.
Getting out for a duck is something that every batsman faces in his career. Many Indian players have also gone for duck multiple times during their international careers. However, there are few players who played a lot of consecutive matches in T20I cricket without facing a duck.
They managed to evade getting out for 0 for many consecutive matches. In this listicle, we take a look at 4 Indian players with the most consecutive T20I innings without a duck.
