Golden Duck: When a batter is dismissed or gets out after the very first ball of the innings without scoring any run, it is said to be a golden duck.
When a batsman gets out without facing a single ball, it is called a Diamond Duck. Usually, it is a run-out of a new batsman at the non-strikerís end. However, there can be two more instances.
Getting stumped off a wide ball qualifies as a Diamond Duck.
Now I am really confused!!!
