In what was a pretty rare sight in the 2nd T20I between India and Australia in Guwahati, Indian skipper Virat Kohli got out on a duck. He was dismissed in the very first over of the innings when Jason Beherendoff, playing his 2nd T20I, took his catch off his own bowling. It was just the 2nd ball that Kohli faced and had to walk back pretty early in the innings.

Even though he went back without scoring, the 28-year-old went on to register another record. It was his 47th innings in T20Is and the first time he scored a duck. He ended up creating the record for the most number of consecutive innings before getting out on a duck in the format.

He surpassed Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik who earlier held the pole position with 40 innings. Apart from Virat Kohli, another Indian to be in the list is Yuvraj Singh who had bagged his first duck in T20Is in his 39th inning.

Most number of innings before the first duck in T20Is:

Shoaib MalikPakistan40

Kohli may not hold onto the record for long as there are 4 active players who have played more innings than him without scoring a duck. Marlon Samuels of Windies is at the top with 58 innings while Angelo Mathews, Hamilton Masakadza and David Miller are also in line to break Kohli’s record.
