Cricket Umpiring and Scoring

I am the batsman and the bat, I am the bowler and the ball,

(In other words, I’m in charge around here.)
Cricket umpiring sounds altogether more relaxed than football refereeing where taunting the ref is an essential part of the afternoon’s sport.     Good eyesight and sufficient nimbleness to avoid well hit drives are  assets, otherwise try scoring.
