    Words that are associated with cricketers...

    Viv - "swagger"

    Rick McCosker- "swathed"

    McGrath - "corridor"
    I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think its the effect or vice versa.

    It's perhaps fitting that the sport's greatest exponent gives his name to an adjective that's used to describe feats of scarcely credible dominance over one's peers and/or opposition.

    Sir Donald Bradman : "Bradmanesque".

    Other eponymously named terms seem all peculiar to cricket, but from the top of my head there's "Chinaman" (Puss Achong), "Bosie" (Bernard Bosenquet) &, most recently, the "Dilscoop" (Tilikaratne Dilshan).
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
