  Contributor(s): Ken Wessen, Fabian and others.
  Normally, in a string of adjectives, the last one
  is considered the most fundamental characteristic, and 
  the first one the least fundamental.

  Thus  a fast-medium bowler *ought* to be fundamentally 
  medium,while a medium-fast bowler ought to be fundamentally
  fast. Thus cricket terminology has chosen to go against
  the conventions of the english language.
