The wicket-keeper batter for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Dinesh Karthik has been around the Indian Premier League (IPL) from the inaugural season and has been a veteran in the grandest league. Scoring plenty of runs in the sixteen editions, the right-hander has managed to take on the opposition and has been the death-over specialist for a while.
However, during the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Karthik recorded his name in the books for all the wrong reasons.
Coming in at five, Dinesh was found in front of the stumps by leg-spinner Adam Zampa on his second delivery as RCB were reduced to 120 for four within 16 overs.
This was basically his sixteenth duck in IPL history as he becomes the joint-highest in the list of most ducks in IPL history joining Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma at the top.
Most Ducks in IPL History:
- Dinesh Karthik - 16 Ducks
- Rohit Sharma - 16 Ducks
- Mandeep Singh - 16 Ducks
- Sunil Narine - 15 Ducks
- Glenn Maxwell - 14 Ducks
The unwanted list features some of the most prominent names in form of Mandeep Singh and Glenn Maxwell.
Talking about the game, Bangalore posted 171 on the board whereas Rajasthan were 28 for five down by the end of powerplay.
