I have been reading the cricket commentary today and came across an unfamiliar word: jaffer.
Anderson continues, surely figuring that someone is going to get Morkel out soon and it bloody well better be him. Bumper, then a jaffer. Morne still there though.
I looked up jaffer and found a definition in the Urban Dictionary:-
A professional gaffe or lapse in judgement by a well-known public figure ( especially a politician). A mistake of epic proportions.
But that doesn't seem to be what the commentator meant. So, does anyone know what a jaffer is, in the cricketing sense?
