• Four

  • Four
The boundary four is signalled by waving an arm from side to side, finishing with the arm across the chest.
Each individual umpire has his own way of signalling a four. They all vary slightly - we've all got our own style.
For any boundary incident, like whether a four has been scored, we can call for a TV replay and get an adjudication from the third umpire if required.
If there are no television cameras present, we have to rely on the honesty of the fielder really.
We would ask him and hope he's an honest boy who'll give us a truthful answer.
That's how it used to be anyway! Usually though, the guys really are pretty honest.
