    Don't know if it is the record, but this Test had eleven batsmen out for ducks:

    This match lasted just three innings and still has ten ducks plus another 12 single digit scores.

    Wasn't there a match held in Sharjah once where Pakistan were bowled out in the 40's both innings? Maybe it's my imagination. I suspect that would be a fair candidate if I'm not hallucinating.

    My memory is brilliant! It was this match, with 10 ducks. I was about 10 runs off on the range, though.

    Although there are only 8 ducks in this match its amazing that not a single bouindary was hit in the match where 40 wickets fell and 187 overs were bowled !!

    It was also a 120 years back where the game was played much differently (and I assume it was not as much a batsman's game). I was looking at a scorecard between the Parsees and the English, or something like that, a couple of weeks back and all score were under 70 runs, and the match ended in a draw! That was because it was a 2-day game.

    Immediately thought of Sarfraz' best Test bowling effort (as voted on by the battle jury of CW) of nine for 86, where the last five were ducks.

    Unfortunately, there were only two others

    There was once a match where all the Batters got a duck.

    Village though.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
