And if you go to our Laws of Cricket page you can see a raft of videos narrated by Stephen Fry (National Treasure). These go through a number of laws but the ones on "No Balls" and "LBW" are particularly useful for umpiring.

Hi all,

At the AGM we talked about umpiring and the fact that we know that some players aren't particularly confident that they know enough to make the right decisions all the time.

What we thought we'd try to do more of this year is ease anyone new to umpiring into it a little more gently. We thought we could work out "pairs" of unmpires on match days so that inexperienced umpires can do a few overs at square leg whilst the more senior umpires do the harder bit. Any decisions that are taken by the senior umpire can then be discussed so that we can transfer some knowledge.

Any other ideas welcome to get everyone experienced in umpiring - please post below!
