telegraph umpires challenge
« on: August 13, 2015, 05:48:13 PM »

http://umpire.telegraph.co.uk/

just come across this and thought it would be fun to share. plus somebody might win some tickets

i got 4 right the first time although i think they were wrong on one of them

did it a second time and got 5 right.

there was only 2 balls repeated in the second over from the first be interesting to know how many different balls there are

I got the first 4 right. Then a leg spinner bowled, clearly pitched outside leg stump so chose not out. Apparently it was out  :o

The game then froze and didn't show me ball 6. It must have realised its error!

First attempt I got 5 right. I've been replaying for past 20 minutes, addicted.

Straight in there with 6, but I got lucky that originally the leg spinner adjudged to have pitched on leg and hitting didn't come up. Still can't quite accept that one  :D

Yeah, I've gone all Kryten on the leg spinner one. I know what they want me to say, but I just can't do it.
