on the cricket commentary they just said the australian bowler had bowled an absolute "jaffa" which nearly caught bells outside edge.

A jaffa is an absolute ripper of a ball/delivery. It means it catches the batsman out and almost takes their wicket.

Jaffa (also corker)
an exceptionally well bowled, practically unplayable delivery, usually but not always from a fast bowler.[1][3]

Imagine that. A tube of actual Jaffa cakes taking someones wicket. :?

Learn something new everyday, I always thought it referred to a man who was firing blanks or had the snip.
