One of the more common examples of Indians' historic struggle to correctly distinguish pronunciation of the letters "v" and "w".

Synonymous with the English word "volleyball" meaning "a game for two teams in which the object is to keep a large ball in motion, from side to side over a high net, by striking it with the hands before it touches the ground; the ball used in this game."

Usage

Narottam Puri: Tendulkar's in fine knick, he's seeing the ball like it's the size of a wolleyball!
