Interesting about cow corner - It's the area in between wide long on and deep mid-wicket where usually no one can hit. And the the joke is that you can have your cows grazing there peacefully and no hit will disturb them.

Rank turner uses rank as a prenominal adjective. Where it means absolute or complete - so a complete turner.

I find "silly mid on", "duck", "maiden" etc to be weirder and funnier.
Interesting observations. But, among the silly phrases the one involving point might be the funniest.
