"Howzat" is what is now commenly used to "appeal" in cricket. A fielder will appeal if they think the batsman is out. The fielder has to ask the Umpire (Referee) "How is that?" before the Umpire will give a decision. However most players know scream it at the top of their lungs so it sounds like Howzat
Also known as "Asking the question"

'Howzat' is an appeal in cricket. Before a batsmen is given out, technically at least one person in the fieliding team must appeal. After an appeal the umpire will give a decision as to whether a batsmen is out, or go to the third umpire if he is unsure on 'line' decisions - namely run-outs, stumpings, and whether a catch is legitimate.
*batsmen nicks the ball to the wicket-keeper*
bowler, keeper and close-in fielders: HOWZAT
*umpire raises finger* - signifying the batsmen is out.
