Worst feeling in Cricket- Ducks, ducks and more ducks
Cricket, more than any other sport, is full of expressions and terms designed to confuse the novice spectator and often even the more seasoned followers of the Gentlemen’s game. Before referring to the below video let us first see concept of a ‘duck’. In cricket, a duck is when a batsman is dismissed for a score of zero during his innings. Players who are dismissed by the first ball they face are said to have been dismissed for a golden duck. This term is applied uniformly throughout the cricket world. To be dismissed for nought in both innings of the same two-innings match is to be dismissed for a pair, because the two noughts together are thought to resemble a pair of spectacles; the longer form i.e Test match is occasionally used. To be dismissed first ball in both innings (i.e., two golden ducks) is to suffer the humiliation of making a king pair.
We at Sportzwiki bring you a rare compilation of pairs (two ducks in a Test match) by best players in the game. These clips include some of the disastrous moments, fails of some players especially Ajit Agarkar who goes for 5 DUCKS IN A ROW. Yes you read it correctly 5 dreadful ducks in a row. It must be very embarrassing for Mumbai cricketer. Agarkar attained the feat of five consecutive innings resulting in ducks (four of them first ball) against Australia, truly an unfortunate honour. Another famous incident that is being covered here is about Australia’s finest batsman – Greg Chappell. Greg Chappell had just made his famous 7 ducks, and some one on the crowd at Melbourne brought a real duck to MCG and lets it run on the ground when Greg Chappell comes out to bat! Now, how hilarious is this? Watch the video yourself and relive some amazing moments from yesteryears.
