    Umpires discretion I guess as to whether he is in line or not. This page is pretty good...

    Had a kid who walked on an LBW today while I was umpiring. I was in the process of giving it, but he'd already taken a few paces off to sheds.

    He was the last specialist bat in a tight chase, too.

    That's kind of nuts. If you've just missed it surely you're the last person who should say where it was going.

    Sort of. Think most people would argue that Gooch, Greenidge and Haynes outperformed him as openers in that era.
