Half volley
An over pitched delivery that is often dispatched to the boundary for four runs.
Half-century
Contrary to mathematical opinion, although 50 is a half-century, a half-century is not 50. It could be anything between 50 and 99!
Hand action
No no no you sick people it isn't what you think! It is what the bowler does with his hand and arms in his delivery stride.
Handling the ball
Another way for the batsman to be out. He’s got to be really stupid or really anxious to have this happen to him.
Hat trick
Every bowler's ultimate fantasy (not counting the one where they are sleeping with Salma Hayek). For most a hat-trick consists of three wickets in three balls. So called because in the 17th century, a bowler who got a hat-trick got an immediate reward. The spectators passed a hat around to collect money which was gifted to the bowler.

My friend from London says the English equivalent is three runs in three balls – a rarity.
Hat trick maiden
Now the bowler is really dreaming! Either that or the batsmen are asleep!
Heavy roller
Earth moving equipment that is used to prepare the pitch. The batsman still helps out by prodding with his silly little 3 pound bat.
Helmet
If you enjoy facing a mad man hurtling a hard object at over 100 miles at you, you better wear this or you are mince-meat.
Hit across the line
Hit an offside ball down the legside and vice versa.
Hit the ball twice
One other way in which the batsman can be out. Downright stupid, if you ask me. It ain’t volleyball you know!
