Part One: What is that umpire doing?

By Rachel Corbett 

As we wait for play to resume I thought I’d share a little game I’ve been playing with myself at the Commonwealth Bank Pink Test (there’s been a lot of down time with the rain).

While most people look at an umpire flapping their wings about and recognise what each signal means, they may as well be waving a plane in for all I know.

Sure, I could look it up but it’s so much more fun making up my own.

So guy in the white hat, I know you deserve some respect but I couldn’t help myself…
