Call
A call for a run. Usually accomplished when the striker says yes, no or wait. At times, the call goes “yes, oops, f#@k, sorry mate” and ends in a run-out. A bad call!
Captain
The least wanted job in England.
Carry
The ball is said to carry if it lands close to the fielder but without a bounce. If the fielder is any good or if he is having a lucky day, that may well end in an out.
Carry the bat
An opening batsman is said to carry the bat when he stays until the end of the innings and remains not out. In 1874, in a match between Bow and Chalcott in England, the man who went in first scored 24 and no one else scored! 10 duck-eggs! He carried the bat.
Catch
The fielder holds the ball in the air (if only for a fraction of a second). Every good catcher knows that he has to toss it in the air right away and run towards the bowler! Unless the bowler caught it himself in which case he is busy rubbing his hand. Because, believe me, it stings like hell if you are lucky enough to get a caught and bowled!
Caught behind
What happens when a batsman tries to hit and then changes his mind. But the bat has its own mind so it makes contact and the wicketkeeper, more alert than the batsman, is quick to catch the ball.

Also, a caught behind is what happens when your behind is jammed at door of the subway train.
Century
100 runs. There was a time when it was also the normal length of a Dravid or Tendulkar innings. These days, only Mohammed Yousuf is consistent enough to get a century all the time.

Some people get real close all the time but get all nervous in the 90’s. Unfortunately, there is no rounding!

Change bowler
A bowler who comes in for an over or two to rest a bowler or to enable a bowler to change ends.
Chinaman
A batsman that is playing cricket with the stumps drawn on the Great Wall. No it's actually a ball bowled by a left-arm wrist spinner. A left-hander's googly ( see definition of 'googly', below)....i.e., a pitch that looks as if it could break INTO a right-handed batter on the bounce, but breaks AWAY instead. So called because the first person to have delivered such a pitch was of Chinese extraction, in the West Indies!
