Facing a duck in cricket is a situation no batsman wishes to encounter, as it signifies getting out without scoring any runs. The even more dreaded scenario is a ‘golden duck,’ where a player loses their wicket on the very first delivery they face. While one might assume that bowlers or tailenders would dominate the list of most ducks, it is often the batsmen, particularly those in the opening or middle order, who find themselves in this undesirable position.

The fast-paced nature of twenty-twenty matches adds to the pressure on batsmen, leaving them with minimal time to acclimatize to the pitch conditions and start scoring quickly. This lack of familiarity with the pitch behavior, bounce, and swing can lead to hasty decisions and costly dismissals. The urgency to accumulate runs swiftly in T20 cricket, coupled with the unpredictability of pitch conditions, leaves batsmen vulnerable to early exits. Ultimately, the demanding nature of T20 cricket underscores the challenges faced by batsmen in avoiding the ignominy of a duck or, worse, a golden duck.

Now the Indian Premier League (IPL) is, perhaps, the most celebrated T20 league tournament across the globe. An extravaganza of unparalleled scale, this league has seen the rise of some of the greatest players in the game. A spectacle that has seen many records being made as well as broken. Here we have a list of the players with the most ducks in IPL history.
