Mark and Shortfineleg,
These days umpires take their decision on bad light and don't offer it to the players.
Thank you Keshava and all Roarers.
A tragic day for the cricket fraternity.
Bayman, thank you for sharing the Chatfield story. Hope you did not ask him unknowingly, "Did you ever bowl in your life?" Just as Tony Greig had asked an oldish man (who turned out to be Don Bradman) in1971, "Did you play any cricket in your younger days?"
I am sure Bradman, Greig, our friend Vinay Verma and Phil Hughes must be discussing cricket in heaven. Bless their souls.
Bayman, Can you recall any other on-field cricket fatality apart from Bedkober's?
