The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been entertaining cricket fans from over the past 12 years. IPL is considered as one of the gigantic tournaments in the cricket world. 8 teams from different parts of the country compete with each other to qualify for the playoffs and then win the prestigious trophy for their franchise.

If we talk about T20 cricket, then it is all about timing the bowl right and scoring a massive total for their team. Some of the batsmen have done really well in terms of building score but on the other side, few have failed to prove their worth. Right from the very first ball, batsmen tend to look for runs and in doing that, they end up getting out on for a duck.

The cash-rich league consists of an ample amount of legendary batsmen who have done exceptionally well but are also part of the list of bagging most ducks in IPL. Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell, and Aaron Finch are in the list of top 20 players with the most ducks in IPL.

Which players are in the top 10 of the list?

Players like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, AB De Villiers, Yuvraj Singh, and many more having a massive fan-base from all around the globe also went to the pavilion without troubling the scorers on a few occasions. The interesting side of the list is that there is no overseas player in the top 10 and the number one spot is seized by the Indian off-spinner, Harbhajan Singh with 13 ducks.

At present, the all-time successful captain of IPL, Rohit Sharma, who has failed 12 times to score a single run, is at the 7th position in the list while Parthiv Patel is at 2nd with 13 ducks. Manish Pandey, Ambati Rayudu, and Gautam Gambhir hold the 4th, 5th, and 6th positions with 12 ducks respectively.
