Harmanpreet Kaur names unwanted record of Worst Indian Women’s Batter, suffers 6th golden duck

In a remarkable display, the India women’s team secured a stunning victory over Bangladesh in the 2nd T20I, but Harmanpreet Kaur made the news for all the wrong reasons. She now has 6 Golden ducks in International Women’s cricket while India triumphed by eight runs despite being dismissed for a mere 95 runs.

Opting to bat first, India faced a batting collapse and managed to score only 95 runs. Shafali Verma emerged as the top scorer with 19 runs off 14 deliveries, including four boundaries. Verma also showcased her bowling skills by claiming a three-wicket haul.

Although India emerged victorious, the team’s captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, garnered attention for the wrong reasons as she suffered a golden duck, being bowled out for zero runs on the very first ball.

This unfortunate dismissal added to Kaur’s record of accumulating six international ducks, surpassing Smriti Mandhana to become the Indian women cricketer with the highest number of ducks.

Overall, Kaur now holds the second-highest number of ducks among Indian cricketers, with Rohit Sharma leading the list with ten ducks to his name. Notably, Kaur had recently received the Player of the Match award for her impressive knock of 54 runs off 35 balls in the first game.

The Indian captain has had her fair share of bad luck in international cricket. Despite her immense skill and contributions to the team, she has encountered unfortunate moments that have hindered her performance. Whether it’s getting dismissed for a golden duck or facing tough situations, Kaur has often found herself on the wrong side of luck.

However, it’s important to recognize her resilience and determination in bouncing back from these setbacks. Kaur’s talent and ability to deliver match-winning performances make her an integral part of the Indian team. With her unwavering spirit, she continues to strive for success and make her mark in international cricket.
