 Who has the highest number of ducks in test match ?

As of 2017, the record for the maximum ducks in Test cricket is held by former West Indies player Courtney Walsh, who got out on 0 forty-three times, at the same time as this record is held by 156 ducks which, set by former Worcestershire and England player Reg Perks.

The time period is a shortening of the term 'duck's egg', the latter getting used lengthy before Test cricket started.  The first duck in a Test match occurred in the first actual Test, among Australia and England at Melbourne in March 1877, while Ned Gregory turned into caught by Andrew Greenwood off the bowling of James Lillywhite. It is considered highly unlucky or seen as a sign of shame when someone gets out on first ball duck especially in a big tournament like the World Cup.
