Bangladesh were bowled out for just 103 in the first innings of the first Test against West Indies in North Sound Antigua on Thursday
In the process they equalled a most unwanted record as six batters failed to get off the mark. The six ducks is the joint highest number of ducks in an innings in Test cricket.
Co-incidentally, the last time a team got six ducks in an innings was Bangladesh in their last Test match, which was against Sri Lanka
In that game too, the six ducks came in Bangladesh's first innings.
Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque, Nurul Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman and Khaled Ahmed all fell for ducks on Day 1 of the first Test against West Indies.
The first time a team had six batters register ducks in an innings was Pakistan against West Indies in 1980
Incidentally, that was the only such occasion where the team did not go on to lose the match, with the game ending in a draw.
