Why is a sightscreen used in cricket?

A sightscreen is used to prevent the eyes of the batsman from the shining light coming from the facing side. So that, the batsman can see the ball clearly when the bowler delivers it. This also prevents any type of unnecessary activity in that direction. This helps the batsman to concentrate to face the ball.

It helps batsmen in focusing the eyesight to the ball.

What are the rules for lbw in cricket?

This rule is fairly complex, a basic overview of the rule is provided below: - The ball hits the batsman in front of the stumps before hitting his/her bat and in the opinion of the umpire, if it had not been blocked by the batsman's body, would have gone on to hit the batsman's stumps. - In practice there are a number of subtleties to the rule, for example: * If the ball hits the batsman outside the line of the off stump and the batsman was playing a genuine shot (but missed the ball), then he cannot be given out.

* If the ball pitches outside the line of the leg stump, the batsman can never be given out, even if he does not play a shot. More information about cricket can be found here: http://www.answers.com/topic/cricket-4

The Difference Between

What is the difference between duty of care and higher duty of care?

Duty of Care refers to the legal responsibility of one, to ensure the safety and well-being of others in their employ or care.

A Higher Duty of Care is where one is in a more senior role and therefore has greater responsibilities than those in subordinate roles.

For instance a teacher has a duty of care towards their pupils ie. they must ensure that the children are safe from physical and psychological harm while those children are in their care at school.

The Principal of the school has a higher duty of care as they are responsible for the welfare of all the students and the teachers by virtue of their position as Principal.

Is every England vs. Australia cricket test an Ashes test?

No, sometimes they go on tours to England for friendly tests.

Your topic is: 'Ashes Tests".

The Ashes series are only between Australia and England. But occasionally the two countries may play a test while on tour that is not Ashes related.

Whoever answered above is probably an indian.... every single test between Australia and England is an Ashes Test.

Correction: Ashes tests are five match series, if a series less than 5 match, that will not be a ashes (But i haven't seen it before )!
