Quiz! Players with most ducks in men’s international cricket

by Wisden Staff 7-minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players who have been dismissed for ducks the most number of times in men’s international cricket. Can you?

Being dismissed for a duck is an ignominy for everyone in the game, one that even lower-order batsmen are keen to avoid. However, this list predominantly features tail-enders, with the one on the top of the lot, a Sri Lankan legend, being dismissed for nought as many as 59 times.

The list, however, also has its fair share of gung-ho batsmen, the ones who like to give the ball a right thwack – holing out for duck in that process is perhaps an occupational hazard.

In all, you have 31 players to name in this list. You have a handy seven minutes to name everyone, and we’ve provided details such as the total ducks each player has been dismissed for, as well as their team and the span of their ducks, which you will find are mostly similar to their career spans.

All the best!
