Record ALERT: Ambati Rayudu Makes An Unwanted Record, Joins The Unfortunate List Of Rohit Sharma, Narine And DK

In the game against Rajasthan Royals, Chennai super kings faced a 32-run defeat at Sawai Mansingh stadium. While chasing the target of 203 runs, CSK batters struggled to play more aggressively, and under pressure, they were demolished by each passing over.

Meanwhile, one of the senior batters of CSK, Ambati Rayudu who had been the backbone of CSK’s batting for a couple of years but now failing to run made an unwanted record on his name in the game against RR. Rayudu came to bat in the match as an impact player, in place of Akash Singh. However, the batter could not do anything much and was sent back to the pavilion on the very first ball of the match. Rayudu tried to play a powerful shot in order to send the ball out of the park but he could not get the height and was caught by Jason Holder on the bowling of R Ashwin. It was Rayudu’s 14th duck in the history of IPL.

With this zero, Rayudu equalled his status with Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma who also has the same number of ducks in the history of the tournament.

Dinesh Karthik who is currently playing for Royal Challengers has the record for being dismissed the most number of times without opening his account. Karthik has this unwanted record for the 15th time. The West Indian all-rounder Sunil Narine and the Indian batter Mandeep Singh also have the same number of ducks as Karthik in the history of IPL.

It will be interesting to see if Rayudu improves his game for CSK or if the management will look toward someone else in the next match. After the loss against Rajasthan Royals, CSK eventually slipped to the third spot. RR is in first place while Gujarat Titans stands at number two.

This season, Ambati Rayudu has played 8 matches in which he has only got 83 runs at a poor average of 16.
