Statistics and records of the greatest number of ducks recorded by a player in the varied matches of the T20 World Cup.

The T20 World Cup has seen some exciting matches and records being made. The matches include some daring moves and work with the batting and bowling. While majority of the batsmen come on the field to score some excellent runs and make new records, there are often instances where ducks may happen as well. It can be due to any number of reasons and the review of the causes is critical before any decision can be taken.

Some of the players who have scored the maximum number of ducks in a certain number of matches are specified as follows:

The T20 World Cup includes 16 teams who play with each other for the prestigious trophy. Although the teams and the players make several records, not all are very special or extraordinary. Some of the records are such that the players wouldn’t want to even know about. For example, the number of ducks that a particular player might have given over the matches that they have played.

The number of ducks given are basically the number of times that a particular batsman has gone out without scoring a single run. It showcases that the skills of the batsman fell short, and he was not able to take care of the expectations that were set from him. Getting out on Zero is a big embarrassment for the cricketer and the batter. So, they must try and work hard towards ensuring they understand the pitch and the bowler before they start batting.
