Five-wicket haul

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[1] occurs when a bowler takes five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded by critics as a notable achievement.[2]

Australian cricketers use the rhyming slang "getting a Michelle" when they take five wickets in an innings. This means they have taken "Five for" which has become a "Pfeiffer" and hence a "Michelle", in reference to Michelle Pfeiffer.[3]
