New Delhi: Indian Captain Virat Kohli entered the record books for something he will not like to remember. He became the first Indian captain to register 10 ducks in Test cricket, leaving behind MS Dhoni with 8 ducks.

This dubious record came in India’s first inning in the second test match against New Zealand in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

Former New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming leads the list of test captains with most ducks with 13 followed by Ex South African captain Graeme Smith and Virat Kohli with 10 ducks each.

Virat Kohli was adjudged lbw on Ajaz Patel’s delivery during the ongoing test match in Mumbai on friday. The Indian skipper went on to challenge the decision. There was a spike on the Ultra Edge when the ball was close to the bat. After having a look from different angles the third umpire did not seem to have any conclusive evidence to overturn the decision of the on field umpire.

Opting to bat, India were 221 for 4 at stumps on the opening day of the second Test against New Zealand. Mayank Agarwal and Wriddhiman Saha were batting on 120 and 25 respectively.

The morning session of the match was wiped off due to wet outfield after overnight heavy rain.
India lost Shubhman Gill (44), Cheteshwar Pujara (0) and skipper Virat Kohli (0).

All three batsmen were scalped by spinner Ajaz Patel.
