Duck (cricket)
In cricket, a duck is a batsman's Dismissal (cricket), dismissal with a score of zero. Etymology 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' ".LONDON from THE DAILY TIMES CORRESPONDENT, 25 July 1866 can be viewed aPaper's past/ref> The name is believed to come from the shape of the number "0" being similar to that of a duck's Egg (biology), egg, as in the case of the American English, American slang term "goose-egg" popular in baseball and the tennis term "love", derived - according to one theory - from French ''l'œuf'' ("the egg"). The Concise Oxford Dictionary still cites "duck's egg" as an alternative version of the term.

First-class Cricket
First-class cricket is the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is one of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each, although in practice a team might play only one innings or none at all. First-class cricket, along with historical single wicket cricket, single-wicket and modern limited overs cricket, limited-overs forms, is one of the highest-standard forms of cricket. The etymology of "first-class cricket" is unknown, but it was used loosely before it acquired official status in 1895, following a meeting of leading English clubs. At a meeting of the International Cricket Council, Imperial Cricket Conference (ICC) in 1947, it was formally defined on a global basis. A significant omission of the ICC ruling was any attempt to ...
