To help new umpires and players. With temperatures due to drop in some areas from -2 down to -6, I would like to see what comments other umpires have to say and inform others, what is the best advice you would give to a new colleague if the ground or Astro is unfit to play on. Remember, I would like you to give a full reason for your explanation, that way other members can learn and debate what you say? Also, would you take in consideration health and Safety for the payers and spectators or just for your own safety. Now, on the same subject would you call off a game if it was raining so hard that you could not see the lines and water was laying on the pitch? Would you call a break in the game if it thunder & Lightening, if so, why?
