    LBW

    There is always a bit of confusion about whether there is LBW or not, this all depends on who you're playin with. Tell us about your ruling on LBW's

    Yours in cricket

    Our local rules are that leg before wicket can only occur if the batsman offers no shot and the ball strikes him on or below the knee (usually made easier to adjudge when the batsman is wearing shorts). I think its a fair rule cause it means someone cant just stand in front of the stumps but you also dont get appeals for lbw every 5 seconds.

    You must have a neutral umpire, to be cricket,otherwise it is a cheap imatation.

    And god forbid, you may even have fun while playing cricket, which is not the point. You also must record every match and every ball on paper or on videotape.
    Or something.

    depends what ya play with. if its a tennis ball then it is exremely difficult to get them out lbw unless u york them or get them on the full or half volley. youve got guts if your playing backyard cricket with a cricket ball. neigbours would kill me if i did that. But LBW's do exist in backyard cricket and its up to the bowler and the mid on feilder to adjudge whether its out or not
