Diamond duck

We continue our acquaintance with the actual terms in cricket. Batsmen always try to score as many points as possible for their team. To do this, they must avoid being knocked out. If this fate overtook the player already at the first throw of the opponent, the expression diamond duck is used in cricket.

Diamond duck: core meaning

This word appeared in the cricketer’s dictionary after cricket magazines began to print the number 0, which looks like a duck egg. Sometimes a batsman can be sent off the field without even touching the ball with the bat. In such cases, the phrase platinum duck may also be used.
