What is the Emperor Pair?

What is the Emperor Pair?In cricket, if a batsman is out for no score in both innings of a Test match, he is said to have scored a ‘pair’ or a ‘spectacle’. When a batsman is out for a duck in both innings – on the very first ball – in each innings, it is termed an ‘Emperor Pair’ or ‘King Spectacles’. The record for the maximum number of Emperor Pairs is held by ace spinner Bhagvat Chandra Sekhar, who managed it twice in two Tests.
