Meaning of cricket terms :

  • Orange cap: It is given for the maximum number of runs
  • Purple cap: It is given for the maximum number of wickets
  • Beamer: When a fast bowler bowls a ball to a batsman that reaches him without bouncing
  • Dolly: A very easy catch taken by a fielder
  • Edge (SNICK OR NICK): When a batsman only just touches the ball with the side of his bat and is caught by the wicket-keeper or the slips
  • Golden Duck: When a batsman is out the first ball
  • Maiden: When a bowler delivers an entire over without the batsman managing to score a run

  • Chinaman bowling- In layman’s terms, it’s left-arm leg-spin – the same as right-arm leg-spin. While a leg spinner turns the ball away from the right-hander, a chinaman bowler brings it back into him, which can sometimes make life difficult. As a right-handed batsman, your instinct is to expect the ball to turn away from you. It’s also called left-arm unorthodox spin. Indian Players: Kuldeep Yadav, Preeti Dhiman
