Stumped Off A Wide Diamond Duck?

1

In cricket, a duck is a batsman's dismissal for a score of zero.

Origin of the term[edit]

The term is a shortening of the term "duck's egg", the latter being used long before Test cricket began. When referring to the Prince of Wales' (the future Edward VII) score of nought on 17 July 1866, a contemporary newspaper wrote that the Prince "retired to the royal pavilion on a 'duck's egg' ".[1] The name is believed to come from the shape of the number "0" being similar to that of a duck's egg, as in the case of the American English slang term "goose-egg" popular in baseball and the tennis term "love," derived from French l'oeuf ("the egg"). The Concise Oxford Dictionary still cites "duck's egg" as an alternative version of the term.[2]

A ‘Duck’ in cricket is pretty embarrassing. It’s a situation when a batsman is dismissed without scoring. If he is dismissed first ball he faces, it is called golden duck. But what if he is dismissed without facing a ball? It is called diamond duck. It happens when the non-striker runs himself out without facing a ball. In another situation, the batsman gets himself stumped on a wide on his first delivery.

It’s rather embarrassing when the batsman has to endure such a dismissal. It has happened a few times in international cricket and it has changed the course of the game. Cricwizz recollects few popular incidents when diamond ducks have been registered in cricket.

Albert Rose-Innes: The South African was the first-ever victim of Diamond Duck in any form of cricket. He was also the first South African to register a duck in his nation’s first-ever Test match. In South Africa’s second match, Rose-Innes did one better by registering a Diamond Duck, getting dismissed...

Ever wondered why when a batsman get out at zero, the term “duck” is used?

The term duck is used in different ways for different situations. The usage may vary regionally.

If a batsman is out on the very first ball he faced then it is called dismissed for a golden duck. When a batsman leaves on the 2nd or 3rd ballhe is said to have been dismissed for a silver and bronze duck respectively. If a batsman is out without facing any delivery (run out from the non-striker’s end, or stumped off a wide delivery) then it is called being dismissed for a diamond duck. If a batsman is dismissed for a duck on the very first ball of the innings, or the team’s first match of the season then it is called being dismissed for a Palladium duck.

The question is, given that a duck is a water bird, what possible relation could there be between a duck and a zero score in cricket? We have found out the actual reason.

The actual term is “duck’s egg out” which has been shortened to...

By bagging the rare duck, Cremer became the first Zimbabwe captain to be dismissed for a diamond duck in International cricket.

Though Zimbabwe won in the first ODI of the series against Sri Lanka by chasing down a 300+ total, the team’s skipper Graeme Cremer hasn’t been in great touch individually as he failed to win even one toss in the 3 matches in the series and is on a streak having lost 7 consecutive tosses in ODIs, only one behind Zimbabwe record of 8 by Heath Streak.

In the 3rd ODI match vs Sri Lanka, Cremer had to walk out to the middle in the 49th over of their innings. Sikandar Raza, who was on strike for the last ball of that over pushed the ball down to the bowler Lakshan Sandakan but in the meantime, Cremer, who was looking to give Raza the strike for the final over, was way outside his crease and couldn’t return by the time Sandakan rattled the stumps at his end.

Thus the Zimbabwe captain had to return to the pavilion not only without...

“Duck” is a terminology used in Cricket. We all know that duck out means a batsman’s dismissal for a score of ‘0’. But in English duck is used for a water bird. So, have you ever wondered what is the relationship between ‘0’ and a duck? Why is it called?


Here is the actual reason:

The term duck is a short form of “duck’s egg out” which is being used even before Test cricket began. The name duck is believed to have come from the shape of the number “0” which is similar to that of “duck’s egg”.

The first use of duck’s egg was in 1886 while referring to the score of ‘0’ by Prince of Whales’ on 17th July 1886, a local newspaper wrote that the Prince “retired to the royal pavilion on a duck’s egg”. The following headline meant Prince returned to the pavilion by scoring a number which is similar to duck’s egg i.e 0. After this incident, duck out has been used on a number of occasions in newspapers thereby it became popular.

It’s never the best of feelings for a batsman who gets out without scoring a run. When the batter gets out for zero, his score is commonly referred to as a duck in the game of cricket. The term "duck" originates from the “duck’s egg”. The egg has the shape of 0 and hence a nought is commonly called “duck”.

There is an interesting piece of history related to the discovery of this amusing little term. On July 17, 1866, when the Prince of Wales got out for a blob, a newspaper carried out a piece stating that “the prince had retired to the royal pavilion on a duck’s egg”. Since then, the duck has forged a successful relationship with the great game of cricket.

Ducks have quite a few varieties as well and each one of them is quite creatively named. Let's get to know them below:

Cricket is bat-and-ball game played between 2 teams of 11 players on a cricket field. And at the centre of that is rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket (a set of 3 wood stumps) sited at every end. One team, designated the batting team, tries to get as several runs as attainable, while their opponents field. Every section of play is termed an innings. When either 10 batsmen are dismissed or a set variety of overs are completed, the innings ends and therefore 2 teams then swap roles. The winning team is one that scores the most runs, together with any extras gained, throughout their one or 2 innings.

The Diamond Duck of St. Canard is the symbol of the city and is appropriately kept as the center piece in the art room within St. Canard City Hall.

History

The Diamond Duck is presumably as old as the city and possibly even older.

Fiction

Cartoon

Tuskerninni and his penguins set their sights on the Diamond Duck. They stage their theft as part of a space opera and easily get rid off the guards by knocking them on the head with hammers. Their crime seems to be a breeze until Darkwing Duck appears. While Launchpad as Darkwing Decoy goes after the penguins, Darkwing chases Tuskerninni, who has the Diamond Duck with him, up to the roof. The gas gun's itching powder makes the villain lose his hold on the artifact and the gas gun's plunger function retrieves it. Darkwing has the upper hand, but the penguins have escaped Launchpad in a working UFO and come to their boss's aid. They knock Darkwing over the roof's edge and grab the diamond as he's...

A strike zone, which the batter ("batsman", always, even if the batsman is female) defends from the pitcher ("bowler"). In baseball, this is an area loosely defined by the umpire. In cricket, it is more well-defined: the area is that occupied by those three wooden sticks in the ground topped by the two short sticks across them: the stumps and bails, a.k.a the wicket. When the ball hits the stumps hard enough to dislodge one or both of the bails,...
