IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Longest Ducks in ODIs

Written by Muhammad Asim on September 24th, 2006   (1,068 views)

In the final of three-nation DLF Cup at Kuala Lumpur, Runako Morton created a new world record of slowest duck by any batsman in terms of balls faced in one-day internationals. Morton consumed 30 balls without troubling the scorers before Nathan Bracken eased him off the 31st ball. The previous record holder in this regard was another West Indian, Phil Simmons, who stood without scoring for 23 balls in the Wills World Series match at Margoa in October 1994. However, the previous longest duck against Australia was by England’s Derek Underwood (off 18 balls) 29 years ago.

Just for record, the record for consuming most balls without scoring and remaining unbeaten is by Douglas Hondo of Zimbabwe who faced 14 balls for his o* against Kenya in the World Cup match at Bloemfontein in 2003. For reader’s interest the accompanying table has the complete details.
