So you often hear when a bowler bowls a batsman that "he has castled him". Where does this term originate from and how has it come to be used in Cricket?
I found an example in commentary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIV5QPW7CCU&t=34s

Castle is used as a term that denotes the wicket that the batsman guards. Hence, comes the verb castled which refers to breaching the batsman's fort and disturbing his wickets.
Origin of the word castle comes from the Latin word castrum, which means fort. I do not know the details of the first recorded usage of castle in a cricketing context.
