Suranga Lakmal just can’t keep out of the action, whether or not he’s the duckee or the inflictor of duckness. Today he lasted three deliveries before falling to Vernon Philander (4-27) in Cape Town. Nuwan Pradeep also ducked in the second Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka, very first ball, Philander again the man responsible.
In Art Deco Land or Napier if you prefer, a trio of ducks were spotted in the first T20I between hosts New Zealand and visitors Bangladesh. For the tourists, Imrul Kayes fell second ball and Soumya Sarkar lasted exactly half that amount of deliveries. In the Black Caps’ response Colin Munro ducketed second ball but the hosts still claimed a six-wicket victory.
