square leg

Definition

Cricket

  • noun a leg-side fielding position (or the player occupying it) roughly in a line with the batsman’s wicket and usually close enough in to save the single; if closer to the boundary it becomes deep square leg. It is one of the ‘standard’ positions shown in all the early 19th-century cricket manuals, but is used rather less often in the modern game.
