Best Answer

if a batsman gets out on the first ball in the first innings of a test match, then when he will face the first ball of second innings, he will be consider as on a king pair, as same as after two consecutive wickets the bowler is considered to be on a hattrick for the third ball, when he gets the third consecutive wicket he is considered to achieve the hattrick similarly when a batsmen gets out on the first ball of second innings as in the first innings he will be considered as he has achieved the king pair.

Why is a batsman who make no runs at cricket said to be out 'for a duck'?

When a batsman has scored no runs, a zero is written in the scorebook against his/her name. This zero resembles the look of a duck's egg hence the term "out for a duck". When a batsman is out for a duck in both innings of a match, the batsman is said to be "out for a pair". This is not because he has a pair of ducks but because the two zeroes side by side look like a pair of spectacles hence "out for a pair".
