[from Answers to Correspondents] [answering questions about umpiring under the new rules] What is the limit of the legitimate reach of the batsman? ... The limit of the length of the batsman’s reach is the length of his bat from him; the height of his shoulder, the extent of the width of the base, as he stands near the base, and not lower than a foot from the ground.
