Easy juicy

The name has its origins in a Test match played between the West Indies and England at Old Trafford, Manchester, in the year 1933. According to folklore,  Elliss "Puss" Achong is said to have had Walter Robbins stumped off a surprise delivery that spun into the right hander from outside the off stump. As he walked back to the pavilion, Robbins said to his teammates "Fancy being done by a bloody ________", leading to the popularity of the term in England, and subsequently, in the rest of the world.
