Walk
A generous batsman decides to head back even before the umpire has pronounced his verdict.
Wicket keeper
Lucky bugger, the only fielder who gets to keep his pads and gloves on when fielding.
Wickets
"THE wickets," always used in plural, are the set of three sticks or "stumps." "THE wicket," in singular is the strip of field between the two sets of wickets. “A” wicket is an ‘out.’ Wicked is the type of cricket Aussies play.
Wide
An opportunity for the umpire to stretch during a long and dull session of play. Also a way that he can help the scorer stay awake because it results in an extra for the batting team. Essentially, a pitch that travels too far from the batsman for him to have a reasonable chance of hitting it. The bowler balls again grudgingly. Wides always make the final overs of ODI’s very exciting. Because they can mess the careful calculations of the winning side.
Wisden Cricketers' Almanack
A really fat book on cricket.
World Cup
A dozen countries fight for years to host this event. Miraculously, the most likely team somehow ends up making it to the final but the next three best teams get eliminated early on. A tournament where the English watch from the sidelines, with tremendous satisfaction, some of their former subjects comprehensively beat their national side at the game that they invented. Should also point out that unlike baseball, this is a real world series with real countries playing for the top spot of a real world sport!
Wrist spinner
A leg spinner is also called a wrist spinner. In other words, the ball spins leg side to off side.
Wristy
A wristy batsman is one that uses his wrist a lot. A Hyderabadi tradition. Think Laxman or Azharuddin.
Wrong 'un
See 'googly.'
