Back foot
Foot of the batsman that is closest to the wicketkeeper.
Back lift
The lifting of the bat even before the batsman attempts to hit the ball.
Backward of square
Anyone fielding on the wicket-keeper’s side of the stumps.
Backward short leg
A fielding position on the leg side, square of the striker's wicket and very close to the batsman and the wicketkeeper somewhere around 1 ‘o’ clock.
Bad ball
Any ball that is just waiting to be slammed that has no chance in hell of getting a wicket. Chetan Sharma bowled one against Miandad once. The rest is history.
Bad light
What games tend to finish in, by this time neither the batsman nor the wicketkeeper can see the ball. And the bowler can barely see the wickets. And umpire can see neither. He then shouts out that play is stopped.

More often, the umpire will end the session due to ‘bad light’ when players have loudly appealed to the shortleg thinking he is the umpire.
Baggy Green
Superior thinking deomnsrtated above. Thanks!
Bail
What a batsman does immediately after getting out cheaply. Also what certain cricketer called Sidhu is out on as he awaits his day in the courts.
Bails
Every now and then a couple of countries wage war in order to win some bails. Not only are these bails small and old but they are burnt as well!

The only things that are more important to a batsman than balls! His balls are protected, so he spends all his time at the crease protecting these.
Ball
It looks nice and red but its frickin hard to connect at top speed - ask Sehwag, he has been searching for one like his life depended on it. Usually made of leather.

Ball is also a word used to describe ‘delivery’ as in the case of 30 balls remaining. And in all cases, it is the one thing that the batsman protects by wearing a guard.
