250 for 4 ducks - Unique Cricket Record

Cricket has a way of coming up with new and interesting records all the time. In the first of the three match one day series against New Zealand being played today at Abu Dhabi, Pakistan lost its first two wickets even before the score card got ticking for them. Opener Salman Butt and skipper Younis Khan were both dismissed by Shane Bond, one wicket apiece in each one of his first two overs. Two more Pakistani batsmen fell for ducks, making it a total of 4 ducks for the innings. In spite of that, Pakistan went on to score 287 runs and in the process became the first team in the world to cross 250 runs in an ODI in spite of 4 ducks!!

You are talking about the 4 Ducks.. But just think still India not able to win after Australians sent 4 players back to their home town.
