What is Diamond Duck
Whenever a batsman is out for zero in cricket, he is given the title of Duck. It is said that the player is out on a duck. Apart from this, if the batsman returns to the pavilion on the first ball, then it is called a golden duck. On the other hand, when a batsman gets out without playing any ball, it is called a Diamond Duck. According to this term, when a batsman stands at the non-striker’s end and is dismissed for zero without taking a run, it is called a Diamond Duck.
Where did the word Duck come from
If a player is stumped on the wide ball on the first ball during batting, it will still be considered a Diamond Duck. In cricket, this word was used many years before the beginning of Test cricket. During a cricket match played on 17 July 1866, the Prince of Wales was dismissed for zero, after which a newspaper had given the headline, ‘Prince Retired to The Royal Pavilion On a Duck’s Egg (Prince ‘Duck’s Egg’). But returned to the royal pavilion after getting out.) Since then the word duck has been associated with cricket.
When a batLaser is out without scoring on the very first ball of his innings, it is called GoalDun Duck. When the batsman is out on the second ball without scoring a run, it is called a silver and a duck. At the same time, the term bronze duck is used on the lines of golden and silver. When a player is out on the third ball of his innings without scoring a run.
