YOU ARE THE UMPIRE
For those who are into the laws of the game, an unusual occurrence happened prior to tea.
Liddle played a ball straight back like a rocket from Sam Wood which struck the umpire in the back of the head and ricocheted to Ali Brown who caught the ball. The umpire required assistance from the physio and went to hospital for a check-up.
What decision should the umpire at square leg have made? Was the batsmen out? Answers tomorrow!
