Leg Stump Sir!

Have you ever heard this line before? This line is spoken by a batsman, who has come down to bat, to the umpire.Whenever a batsman, comes to bat you can see that they mark one particular spot in front the leg stump. In cricket when the bowler starts balling, the off stump and the mid wicket must be visible to him, so for that reason batsmen always take a leg stump stance and before they start batting, they call out to the umpire, addressing him as “sir” with respect,asking him whether they are at the right spot or not.If not, then they are guided by the umpire, who signals with his hands, whether to move right or left. Zillions watch cricket, but I think very few of them know about this.Now how’s that huh?
