Now for something completely different ...

The definition doesn't actually tell what it is. It defines google in
terms of itself; "to have a 'googly' break".

What exactly makes a "break" googly?

googly, n. Cricket. A ball which breaks from the off, though bowled with
apparent leg-break action.
b. attrib. or as adj., esp. in googly bowler, bowling.

Oh yeah, that explains everything!

So, apparently, it's a googly if it breaks a leg.
