While some records are achievements for the players, there are some other records that are like a big dark spot for players.
Duck is one such record. Getting out for duck is something that is a big embarrassment for a batsman. Here we look at 5 players with the most number of ducks in the Indian Premier League. Since there are multiple players with an equal number of ducks in the Indian Premier League, we rank them on the basis of the number of innings they have played.
