In fact, to understand what the word cartwheel means, we needed to visit more than one sports website. But we did it. To figure out what a cartwheel is, remember how gymnasts perform the wheel element. In 2 words, this is the rotational movement of the body. By lowering his hands to the floor (for support), the gymnast turns his body vertically in the air and lands on his feet.

It can be assumed that if this term is associated with a person, then it means that it can be something like a special batsman’s strike or a bowler’s serve in cricket. However, this is not quite true. The cartwheel is connected to the wicket and its stumps. When a bowler delivers a strong (this is important) serve and the ball hits the wicket, its stumps from such force can turn over several times in the air, that is, make a cartwheel. That’s what this term means. If you want to take a look at this, there are videos with cartwheel collections on various video hosting sites.
