|In a Test between India and the West Indies, the fiery Wes Hall was sending quivers down the Indian spine. The new batsman walked slowly to the crease, not feeling unlike a lamb at the slaughter house.
As the great bowler thundered in, suddenly he stood up in the crease, and signaled that he wanted the sight screen adjusted.
Adjustments were made and the bowler was ready to come in again.
Once again, in the middle of his run-up, the batsman found something disturbing in the sight screen. Indeed, this went on a few times before the irritated umpire walked up to the batsman and enquired, "Where do you want the sight screen, for God's sake?"
The batsman asked, with an ounce of fear, "Couldn't I have that screen on the pitch between Wes and me?"
