Definition

Cricket terminology - in gully (street) cricket, as per the street rules if the ball bowled is slightly wide and hitting it results in a catch (where the batsman is legally out as per the REAL cricket rules - if the batsman can hit it, it cannot be a wide ball), the gully cricket batsman insists on the above defined phrase to be enforced (or lack thereof)

Usage
