Understanding cricket isn't helped by the weird words used to describe lots of the things that happen in a game.
Here are some of the more common ones:
A ball bowled that is so accurate that it is impossible for even the best batsman in the world to avoid getting out to it. Not an orange.
A very aggressive way of bowling the ball. It's a very quick delivery that bounces at the right to hit the batsman in the head, forcing him to move out of the way.
Attacking, punchy, shot that sees the batsman lean forward as they hit it, rolling the ball along the ground towards the boundary.
If a batsman is out without scoring a run they are said to be out for a duck. Thought to be so called because a duck's egg is the same shape as a zero.
In cricket insulting the opposition to try and put them off is a long standing tradition. It's called sledging, and Australian players are known to be among the best at it.
Fielding positions close to the wicket-keeper. Can contain up to five players, making a slip cordon.
