Economical
Try this – Bapu Nadkarni in 1964 versus England – 32 overs, 27 maidens, 5 runs, no wickets! That would be boring. Anything below 3 runs per over is economical!
Economy rate
Average runs conceded by bowler per over.
Edge
When the ball only just hits the bat. It takes a lot of skill to do this and you are often rewarded by being caught. Listening to a faint edge has been elevated into a science. See snickometer!
Eleven
The number of players in a team unless you are playing a certain Hong Kong Sixes tournament or were playing for USA Eighteen or Twenty Two against the English Eleven way back! Yes! That was legit!
Elysian Fields
Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey is the site of the first international game between USA and Canada. It was the home of St. George's Cricket Club. An 1844 cricket match between teams from the United States and Canada was the first international sporting event in the modern world, predating the revival of the Olympic Games by more than 50 years.

It is also the birthplace of baseball. In 1845, Knickerbocker Club of New York City began using Elysian Fields in Hoboken to play baseball due to the lack of suitable grounds across the Hudson River in Manhattan. On June 19, 1846, the Knickerbockers played the New York Nine on these grounds in the first organized game between two clubs. By the 1850's, several Manhattan-based member clubs of the National Association of Base Ball Players were using the grounds as their home field.

In 1856, Elysian Fields was the place that inspired pioneering journalist Henry Chadwick, then a cricket writer for the New York Times, to develop the idea that baseball could be America's National Pastime.
Enforce
As in enforce a follow on. See follow on.
Expensive
Opposite of economical. Martin Snedden holds the record for conceding 105 runs from his 12 overs in a World Cup match against England. Aamer Sohail and Chris Harris bowled the most expensive overs in ODI’s. Bowling for Pakistan v Sri Lanka, Singapore, 1995-96, Aamer conceded 30 runs in one over. Chris Harris conceded 30 also versus Sri Lanka when NZ played SL in Sharjah in 2000. Malcolm Nash playing for Glamorgan conceded six sixes off six balls to Sir Garfield Sobers in a county match. Tilak Raj of Baroda had the same misfortune when a defensive player, Ravi Shastri, hit him for six sixes playing in a Ranji Trophy game versus Bombay.
Extra
Sometimes mistaken for a batsman. Steadily moving up the list of all time leading run scorers for England. Includes a collection of no balls and byes where runs are still made without any contribution of the bat!
