Faf du Plessis becomes the third captain to register a golden duck in the IPL playoffs

RCB captain Faf du Plessis had an ordinary start to his team’s Eliminator match against Lucknow Super Giants. Firstly, he lost the toss, and then Mohsin Khan dismissed him for a golden duck to put the Bangalore-based franchise on the back foot.

He became the third captain to be dismissed on the first ball of his innings while batting in the top 5 of the order.

MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are the first skippers to register this unwanted feat in the Indian Premier League.

Earlier, KL Rahul won the toss and invited RCB to bat first. The winner of this match will clash with Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2022.
