If it's an outside edge that's caught then it's "great bowling", but if
it's an inside edge onto the sticks it's, "unlucky"?

because the batsman was unlucky to be able to get an edge on the ball.
Obviously it was far too good for him.

Never thought about it, but your spot on.

Depends on how he plays on. A straight edged to the stumps isn't unlucky. If
he drags it back into his pads and bounces off them and then on to the
stumps I consider that unlucky, in the same way Alec Stewart was unlucky
when he very thick edged a pull shot down onto his raised knee and the
kneed/deflected it to the keeper.
