Another thing that happened recently that made me curious was when I got a "5" (have played for years but this is the first time this has happened.
I hit a single, the fielder had a shot at the stumps but missed and his throw went to the fence.
Why isn't this just a four? Not that I was complaining, but yeh….
“I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think it’s the effect or vice versa.”

Yeh. Guess I'm gonna have to read a lot before I make it as an elite umpire.Law 19:7. Overthrow or wilful act of fielder
If the boundary results from an overthrow or from the wilful act of a fielder the runs scored shall be
(i) any runs for penalties awarded to either side
and (ii) the allowance for the boundary
and (iii) the runs completed by the batsmen, together with the run in progress if they had already crossed at the instant of the throw or act.
Monk, didn't you see that 7 in the Ashes Test?
I had a good one three years ago.
The batsman swung one to leg in the air.
The ball hit the fielder at short leg on the helmet and bounced down. The fielder flicked the ball on to the stumps, breaking the wicket.
On appeal my colleague (the strikers end umpire) gave not out as the batsman was in his ground.
The bowler turned to me and asked if it would have been out had the batsman been out of his ground.
I gave the correct answer.
What would you give?
It's amazing how many very good and very experienced players don't know that a stump being completely knocked from the ground (if the bails are already off) is sufficient for a run pout to be effected.
