Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket


Dickie

Once umpire Dickie Bird found it difficult to adjust to Dennis Lillee's shortened run-up midway through an over.
Thereafter, for every ball Lillee bowled, even off his long run-up, this umpire kept sneaking untrusting looks over his shoulder.

 

Two fairly extrovert men who were great at what they did.
One can only imagine the conversation!
