List of players with Diamond Ducks in World Cup matches: There is nothing more unfortunate to not score a run when one get to bat in any international match. But there is something worse, getting out without even facing a ball and scoring a run. The event mostly occurs with a run out either while taking a run or the most unfortunate circumstance, while backing up.
Here are some of the unfortunate souls who were dismissed in World Cup matches without even facing a ball.
(PS: Diamond Duck is a duck with no ball faced)
Eddo Brandes, Zim vs NZ, 1987
Eddo Brandes was run out for a diamond duck trying to bring Houghton back on strike.
New Zealand faced Zimbabwe in a group match at Hyderabad (Deccan), batted first and scored 242/7 with the help of 64 from Martin Snedden and 72 from Martin Crowe. Zimbabwe’s reply just had 2 characters in them Dave Houghton who scored an almost match winning 142 and Iain Butchart who made 54. But Zimbabwe still fell short by 3 runs.
