Ashton Turner in record fifth successive T20 duck - four of them first ball

Tuesday 09:54 GMT

Australian Ashton Turner became the first man in Twenty20 history to make five consecutive ducks as he fell first ball in the Indian Premier League.

His unbeaten one-day innings in March broke the run of T20 ducks, which began with a first-ball dismissal in the Big Bash League in February and was followed by a five-ball nought against India. The Royals, captained by Australian Steve Smith and featuring England all-rounder Ben Stokes and newcomer Jofra Archer, lost the match against Delhi Capitals by six wickets with four deliveries left.
