Definition of the day #2: Get out of jail free card

“A fortuitous, lucky or downright spawny cricketing reversal, whereby defeat seemed certain but somehow circumstances conspire comically to contrive an unlikely victory.”

Another highly appropriate term for today’s England v Afghanistan T20 World Cup game – a a big scare for England. but they prevailed in the end, thanks to some decent fielding with good seam bowling especially from Liam Plunkett.
