Already the bowler has the width of three wickets for the display of his twist,' and when he attempts a greater curl, the batter ought, I contend, to be allowed to move forward and strike such a ball fairly to leg, as of old, without gaining the painful diploma of l.b.w. Any advantage gained would be equally shared by both sides. No two umpires c0uld say positively how much twist there was on wide leg balls of different pitches: and thus the judges would either be inclined to strain a point or ignore the novel rule.
If it be really proved that batting has conquered bowl ing, by all means let the wickets be widened, not raised, for many have a great objection to a high delivery: but in any case leave undisturbed one of the finest points of the game - free, Open-shouldered and brilliant leg hitting.
