OED’s word of the day: “googly”

How I sometimes wish I knew a thing about cricket …
“A ball which breaks from the off, though bowled with apparent leg-break action.”
Sheer poetry. Magic.
OED online: googly

I wonder whether the founders of Google had that in mind, with or without apparent leg-break action.
Well done, the O.E.D., anyway (as usual).
