    Field placing names

    I've been watching, playing, listening to cricket since 1960. During this time names for new shots have appeared, names for new deliveries, but I cannot think of a new field placing name. Which was the last fielding position name that joined the lexicon, and when was it?

    Hmm, "on the 45" is almost a fielding position, and maybe "box man".

    Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in careful.
