Cricket Terms, Definitions, Conditions and Rules

Every person who likes absolutely any kind of sport wants to know absolutely everything about it. Of course, we can talk endlessly about the whole sport. Our task is to understand cricket. We have already written about the basic laws and definitions. In this article, we will try to understand the specific phrases and terms of the popular game. To do this, we will use a book already written by a linguist – Michael Rundell, The Wisden Dictionary of Cricket and some other sources of cricket terms.

Dictionary of Cricket: cricket Terms

Michael Rundell is an English linguist and lexicographer and honorary doctorate from Coventry University. He was one of the first to move reference resources from print media to digital. Since the 1980s, he has been writing and editing numerous vocabulary projects. Thanks to Michael, the 3rd edition of The Wisden Dictionary of Cricket was published in 2006. We will talk about it mainly in this article.

Before you start writing phrases and definitions, there are two important notes. First, the words will not only come from Michael Rundell’s book. Secondly, they will go in random order (not alphabetically).
