Umpired a game couple or three years ago he was knocking sixes galore.
One hit went really high, an old lady was being pushed along the
boundary path in a wheelchair. The ball was swirling and the
wheelchair pusher didn't know to go back or forward in order to avoid
injury. It looked like the old lady was trying to catch it.
Bowling was wierd. He never looked like he was going to take a wicket,
but he had 4 in that match.
