Explaining the rules.....

here we see a demonstration of how to judge which silver ball is closest to the reddy-orange one. Where the eye cannot judge a measure can be used.

I wonder if the umpire got this one as correct as those at the cricket did(n't) this past weekend!

Two balls! ... now where did they come from
Bill Phillips: Well they are demonstration balls, showing what happens when there is uncertainty as to which ball is closest and thus determining who must play next. So the judge or umpire or whateverthehell he is called must decide

Bill Phillips: I believe they do but not well
That's a tough one!
Bill Phillips: He was up to the task Tom
Such responsibility Bill!!
Bill Phillips: He was the man for the job Sally
