From the cover: “The language of cricket is as complex and fascinating as the game itself. It is made up partly of words unique to the game of cricket, like googly and yorker, and partly of common English words used in a specialized manner. This reference to the vocabulary of the game should appeal to those well-versed in cricketing terms as well as to recent converts. It charts the evolution of the language, which reflects in turn changes in the game itself. The text covers historical and contemporary terms, features quotations from a wide variety of sources accompanying the majority of definitions, including newspapers from Britain and abroad dating as far back as the 18th century, and provides technical, historical and legal information relating to a term..”
