Lucia, a 'duck' in cricket means that you're out without scoring any runs. A 'golden duck' means that you're out to the first ball that you face, without scoring any runs.
As I'm a Scot this bit of info will impress you mega style:
To bowl a maiden over. It doesn't mean copping off with a virgin - it means bowling an over in cricket (six balls in succession) in which the batsman in the opposing team doesn't score any runs.
Cricket is a predominantly English game in which twenty two guys, usually dressed in white but sometimes in full splendiferous colour, make one game drag on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...........for days and it's still unclear to the uninitiated who is actually winning..or has won in the end. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
