duck == getting out for 0 run
golden duck == getting out on your first legal delivery
diamond duck == getting out without facing a legal delivery
a) any arguments there?
b) What about the 'legal delivery' part of gold and diamond ducks? If
the first delivery I face is a wide, and I run, but get run out.. what
kind of duck would you call that?
c) If my first ball is a no-ball, and the next ball I get out (for
zero runs) is that a duck or a golden duck?
d) I've once scored a diamond duck, but not standard ducks, and
someone asked "have you ever got a duck", would you answer;
i) Yes, but it was a diamond
ii) No, but I once got a diamond duck
ie does "duck" in that question cover all 3 types.
thank you all :)
this is for some scoring software, so any input would be most
