Best Answer

On the field there are two Umpires, one stands at the wicket (from where the bowler bowls) & the other is at square leg (Which is level with the batting crease on the leg side of the wicket) they count the balls in the over, hold clothing not needed by the bowler when he is Bowling, making sure the ball is delivered correctly and officiate on run making & whether the batsman is or is not out. In doing this there are a set number of signals they make to the scorers: Fours, Sixes, Extras & so on.
