Legendary British umpire Dickie Bird, who is known to have had to walk off the field during a match for the same reason, is reported to have said, “I do not remember the opponent, but in one of the Test matches at Old Trafford, I had to leave the field with the permission of the England bowler. I don’t remember much about the incident, but I think the bowler was Ian Botham. I spoke to him and went off the ground to the toilet and returned soon running down with my hand on pant zip”, the 83-year-old Bird recalled.
