  • In the 4th Test match of India against England, Cheteshwar Pujara was one of the 6 batsmen who got a duck in the first innings. But not many might know is that, it was Pujara’s first ever duck in his Test career. He had played 38 innings before getting a duck to his name.

    This feat of Pujara is the 2nd best for any Indian after Karsan Ghavri, left handed fast bowler, who played 41 innings before getting his frist duck.

    As expected, AB de Villiers has played most number of innings before getting out on a duck in Test cricket and the team that got him out on a duck is none other than Bangladesh. Following him is Sri Lankan captain Aravinda de Silva followed by Clive Llyod.

    Cheteshwar Pujara with his duck in the 39th innings has given him the 23rd position in this list.
