    Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Andrew Strauss are the only 2 players to score a 100 and get out on duck thrice in their Test career. 

    It is a rare feat but as many as 151 instances of the same to happen is something unbelievable but it has happened and not just once, but also twice and thrice.
