    27 days without scoring a run in backyard cricket after batting everyday is my record.

    I always gunned it in beach cricket though.

    Personally, four in a row. Under 14 in 2000.

    I also recorded 10 ducks in my first 16 completed innings... it is now 16 ducks in 47 complete innings.

    I had 2 in a row this season in my first 2 games of the season.. They happened to be my first 2 ducks.

    My friend had a period of 5 consecutive ducks last years.

    Good question, my record is 2 ducks in a row. Remember the second duck was the most tentative and nervous shot ever and I spooned up a catch to a slightly 'deep' silly mid off who took a ripper of a catch.

    Actually the fielder was Ryan Cullen who plays QLD Cup Rugby League.

    I made a 2nd ball duck, in my very first innings of cricket, when I was caught out by my own team mate, who was substituting for the opposition - I was only 8 years old, playing in u12s. I didn't make another duck for about 4-5 years I think. I've been playing cricket for 10 years and I've made 5 ducks overall, so I'm pretty happy that I can still count them all on one hand.

    King Pietersen's probably got the record for the most ducks I think, although he scored a 20 odd a few weeks ago. The word is, he makes Chris Martin look like Sir Donald Bradman.

    I imagine there's probably someone out there who's made 29 ducks in a row somewhere. That's the great thing about cricket - no-one keeps any definitive records below First-Class level.

    And no, beach\backyard hitting a ball around isn't cricket, it's just, well... hitting a ball around. To be a game of cricket there must be scorers, Umpires and eleven players on two teams.

    I made 8 in 11 innings about 10 years ago. Scored four runs in the season.

    Had two consecutive goldens the last time I played cricket about 5 years ago. Broke out with a thrill a minute 6 in the 3rd and final dig to avoid total embarrassment, but still had to buy a couple of rounds for my ineptitude.

    I've only ever had 1 in a row (though, plenty of them!). My best was probably when I edged the first ball of the innings to 1st slip, got dropped, edged the second ball to the keeper and got dropped (both relatively tough chances though). The 3rd ball was short and wide so I creamed it with a cut shot, got a little bit of a top edge but 99 times out of 100 it would have flown for 4. Somehow the guy in the gully dove horizontal, stuck out his right hand and the ball stuck. Was an action packed innings that one.

    i clearly remember scoring some runs in three of my 20 odd innings (outings?) back in 1988. it was a summer of serious cricket between four teams in our town and we played each other regularly. i think i got close to hundred wickets with my off spin and about 10 runs in all knocks put together. 17+ ducks in one season must still be a record in our town.

    I think I take the biscuit... A year or two ago, I had 6 (probably more) ducks in a row. Many were golden, and in the sam season, I scored no runs
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.

    I shared our club trophy one year for the most ducks in a season - 4. Only had one bat last season though and was not out. Before that, I only played one game a year due to work, and got a duck in the 2005/06 season.
