A silver duck is awarded to a batsman who is dismissed on the 2nd ball he/she faces having failed to score a run. There is also of course the golden duck given to a player dismissed on his/her first ball, a platinum duck given to a player dismissed on the first delivery of a match, and a diamond duck given to a player who is dismissed without facing a ball (such as from being run out).
