Indian middle-order batsman Dinesh Karthik came into today's (10) first ODI against Sri Lanka as an experienced campaigner.

Before this game, he had played 76 games scoring 1470 with 9 fifties.

However, Sri Lankan bowlers did not allow him to score today.

He was dismissed by Suranga Lakmal for naught after facing 18 balls.

Balls taken by Dinesh Karthik for his duck was the most by any Indian batsmen in ODI history.

The previous longest duck, in terms of balls, for India, was 17 balls by Eknath Solkar against England in 1974.

Later in the innings, Jasprit Bumrah was out for a 15-ball duck, the joint fifth-longest for India.
