Raina bags longest duck by Indian batsmen

Scorecard / Match Report / Images

Suresh Raina is in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Under-pressure after aggregating only 105 runs in six innings of the previous three Tests against England, Raina batted for 39 minutes and faced 29 balls before returning to the pavilion without opening his account.

He now shares the dubious distinction of recording the longest duck by an Indian batsman.

Irfan Pathan also has a 29-ball duck against his name, against Pakistan at Bangalore in 2004-05.
