military medium (not comparable)

  1. (cricket) Straight, medium pace (bowling).
    • 1969, Punch, Volume 257:
      When TV cricket is dull—and even on the Saturday of the Lord's Test most of the bowling was "military medium" and most of the batting was of the prod and push variety—I take refuge in the verbal gymnastics of the commentators.
    • 2012, Tom Rodwell, Third Man in Havana:
      A total of 109 was never going to be enough for Cuba, let down by their baseball-style batting again, and they couldn't cope with the military medium bowling of our imbedded Telegraph journalist Tony Francis, another son of Leicester, who made a remarkable five for nineteen, which made his day too.
