Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi all

Just a simple question - see who comes back with the right answer?

When was LBW first written into cricket rules?

Hint - you wont find it in wikipedia.

Best regards

Hi All

Its Friday come round again - so here is another one.

I am at a particular spot on the surface of Planet Earth.

I walk 1 mile due south and 1 mile due East and 1 mile due North and arrive at the same spot.

There are two places on Earth where this can happen.

Where are they?

Best regards

And there I was, fearing for the future of pedantry.

Well played sir

Hi Darren

In 1774 it was written into the Laws of Cricket - not the rules.

Hi Gary

If it is a trick question its not in the use of LBW instead of Leg Before Wicket.

Is this a trick question because it's always described as Leg Before Wicket and never LBW?
