During the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Sunday, Dinesh Karthik from Royal Challengers Bangalore was dismissed for a duck for the 16th time in the Indian Premier League.
He was given out LBW for zero runs. Initially, the umpire declared him not out after leg spinner Adam Zampa appealed for his dismissal, but Rajasthan Royals went for a review which showed that the ball would have hit the stumps.
This dismissal has put Dinesh Karthik on par with Rohit Sharma for the highest number of ducks in the tournament. Rohit Sharma had also suffered his 16th duck earlier in the season against Chennai Super Kings while leading Mumbai Indians.
Mandeep Singh and Sunil Narine follow Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma on the list with 15 ducks each in the Indian Premier League.

There was a man who used to do everything for this team, saving RCB for n times, wicketkeeping better than Dinesh Karthik, fielding at the top level. We miss you Ab Devilliers.🥺#RRvsRCB pic.twitter.com/vgZPTzz98y— Akshat (@AkshatOM10) May 14, 2023
