F*#$ You
A friendly opening sledge muttered by Aussie bowlers when they meet a batsman.
Face of the bat
The flat part of the bat. The side that the batsman prefers to use.
Fall of wicket
When someone is out.
Fast bowler
A bowler that can generate some serious pace. Rawalpindi Express, Shoaib Akhtar, holds the world record for the fastest bowling ever recorded. He clocked 100.23 miles per hour or 161.3 KMPH in a World Cup match at Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa on 22nd February, 2003. It is said that Michael Holding bowled even faster. And then there was Thommo!
Fast pitch
A pitch on which the ball moves really fast once it bounces. Usually has green cover but is hard underneath.
Field
The area within the boundary. Also, when used as a verb, the word refers fielding i.e. chasing, stopping, picking up and throwing the ball. Of course, the bowling side is the one that fields.
Fielder
Technically, everyone on the bowling side except the one that is bowling or keeping the wickets. Some just sleep through their fielding responsibilities. Mohammed Azharuddin and Allan Border are regarded highly for their fielding. Azharuddin holds the world record for most catches in ODI’s. He has 156 catches in ODI’s. Slip fielders such as Mark Taylor and Mark Waugh generally lead in test rankings (the two have 181 and 157 catches in test matches respectively). Azharuddin rarely fielded in first slip position. He excelled in Gully.
Fielding circle
Lots of dots which, when joined, do not form a circle!
Fielding restrictions
Rules that force a captain to remove fielders where they are serving a useful purpose and place them where they really aren’t needed.
Fifty
50! For those really poor at math, that qualifies as half-century. See half-century.
