Nick Pick The horror stories I had heard about Indian umpires just before our 1969 tour came to a naught after this incident which more than proved how smart they were. During our game against North Zone, Johnny Gleeson’s unorthodox spin had the Indian batsmen groping, pushing and prodding, shuffling and swishing. But not once could they connect bat to ball. When one of them finally did, he had edged one to the wicketkeeper Brian Taber. The loud appeal, however, had no effect on the umpire who would have shamed a rock with his "standing still” ability. The bowler, the wicketkeeper and the close-in fielders were dumbstruck, until a player from the cover appealed again, after which the umpire’s finger went up. As we gathered in a group to congratulate Gleeson and Taber, the umpire walked the length of the pitch, tapped Johnny on the shoulder, and said; “Mr. Gleeson, I am sorry to have taken so long over that decision, but there was a strong wind blowing against me and it took a long time for the sound of the nick to carry to my end."
