Golden Duck

When the batsman gets out to the first ball he faces in his innings, it is referred to as a golden duck. It is extremely embarrassing and heartbreaking for a batter to be dismissed for a golden duck and in most cases, it is usually seen that the batter is jittery and anxious while facing the first ball.
