• noun a printed card, produced and issued for sale at a cricket ground, showing the names of the players on each side listed in their batting order and giving details of the scores, dismissals, and fall of wickets up to the time at which the card was printed. Scorecards of some kind were already in existence before the end of the 18th century, but it was Fred Lillywhite, touring the major grounds with his portable printing press from 1848, who made the continually-updated scorecard one of the institutions of the game.
