I assumed it was a british word, but Kate a brit was surprised by it so I looked it up in Websters, and American dictionary, and my usage came up numbers 1 and 2 and they said, "Middle English wiket, from Anglo-French, probably of Germanic origin; akin to Old Norse vīk inlet, corner
First Known Use: 13th century"
While word reference (from the OED) had it second and claimed it is a N American usage.
LOVE this language, I guess it came over with the immigrants from the UK and the older usage stuck as the cricket association didn't?
