Or in the case of Indian bowlers, "aaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa."
BergKatse wrote:(2) Is an appeal that does not use the words "how" and "that" valid? Can an umpire give a batsman out if the bowler says, "Gee, umpire. I reckon that took the edge of the bat before it went through to the keeper, and I think the batsman's out. Do you agree?"
Sure, you'd look like an utter wanker, but apart from that, I wonder if it's valid since the laws mention only "How's that?"
Hmmmm. Just my opinion but I'd imagine the important part of the rule would be the appeal rather than the exact wording, even though the rules do specifically refer to "How's that?" as covering all dismissals. And yes I had to look the rule up.
