ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Records and Statistics: Record-breaking Most Ducks at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup

An international cricket tournament is called the ICC Cricket World Cup. It is played using the One Day International (ODI) cricket format. In England in 1975, the first Cricket World Cup was played. Each one-day match consisted of 60 overs for each team. In 1987, it was staged for the first time outside of England, in India and Pakistan. The number of overs per side was decreased to 50 for the 1987 match as well.

Australia is the most successful nation in the list of ODI and T20 cricket world Cup champions with five titles. There have only been two nations to win the world cup twice: West Indies and India. Do you know that the ICC has held the Women’s World Cup in both 50 and 20 over formats since 1973? View the winners list for the ICC Men’s World Cup in both the 50 and 20 over formats, along with information on the match-winning captains.

Most Ducks

In cricket, a duck is among the most embarrassing plays a player can make. But even in competitive World Cup games, it happens frequently. The ICC ODI World Cup player list with the most ducks is available here. Imagine spending months practicing in pain with top-notch tools and coaches, just to return to the stands after the very first pitch of your innings. After a duck in cricket, a player experiences that emotion. The dubious honor of having recorded the most ducks in ODI World Cup history belongs to Nathan Astle. Five times, he miscalculated and got the wrong number.

When a batsman is out for a score of 0, it is called a duck. A “golden duck” occurs when a player is out after bowling his first ball. The most humiliating thing that can happen to a cricket player, especially the top-order batters, is probably getting a duck. Nobody anticipates the bowlers to hit big and score runs, but the opener leaving after the first ball he plays is embarrassing.

Ducks: 5 innings: 22

Astle started the 1996 World Cup with a century in the first game, but on cricket’s grandest stage, he lost his form. Over two World Cups, scores of 1, 2, 6, 1, 4, 4, and 2 were wedged between two blobs. Against Zimbabwe in 2003, he scored an undefeated century, but that was immediately followed by two more zeros in the Super Sixes.

In all forms of the game, former New Zealand cricketer Nathan Astle played for his nation. In Christchurch, New Zealand, on September 15, 1971, he was born. Right-handed hitter Astle was also a good right-arm medium-pace bowler. In ODI cricket, he is regarded as one of the finest Black Caps players in history.

Young Astle joined the East Christchurch-Shirley Cricket Club, where he batted at number six and bowled at a medium pace. He participated in a match between Canterbury’s first-class team and Central Districts. He didn’t impress during the first three seasons. He hit 663 runs at an average of 55.25 during the 1994–1995 season, which stands out as his best season.

Astle was chosen for the 1995 ODI series against the West Indies due to his outstanding performance for Canterbury during the 1994–1995 season. In a low-scoring rain-affected contest, he scored 25 runs. In 1996, Astle made his Test debut in Hamilton against Zimbabwe. In the course of the series, he only managed to score 77 runs, averaging 19.25. Astle hit two century on the West Indies trip that year.
