Once again, I bid “Good Morning” to all MM Linkers. This is “The Count” (aka middlestump) taking to the crease for a second innings. Last week, I knew that I was opening the floodgates and awarding a multitude of “runs”. The question is “Can you continue with such high scoring during the current round”? As you may have guessed, this week I am talking cricket! Unlike a lot of aging cricketers (who get their kit out each Spring and tell themselves that they’ll have just one more season) I didn’t so much as hang up my boots one September, I actually threw them away!

However, I got so much pleasure from my years of playing, that I wanted to give something back to the game. I immediately embarked on an umpiring course. I had thought that I knew the laws of cricket well, but I was soon having my eyes opened. I was surprised to learn that there are forty-two laws of cricket and ten essential items that an umpire must take on to the field of play! Once a week, for six months, I attended two-hour-long seminars. Assessment consisted of a three-hour written examination followed by a practical of similar length. To become a full member of the Association of Cricket Umpires and Scorers required a high percentage mark in both and I was fortunate enough to achieve this.
