    How to use "Trick up" in context?

    Trick up is a term used in the sporting world for a very specific maneuver. In short, it means to deceive the opponent by performing an action that appears to be the wrong thing to do, but in actuality has the potential to gain an advantage.

    The term first surfaced in the 1920s in cricket, where it was used to describe how a bowler could deceive the opposite batsman with a ducking action. The bowler would dip their shoulder slightly instead of their head, making it look like they were going to deliver the ball over the top of the batsman's head.
