Billy Bowden was once a promising fast bowler in his 20’s until he began to suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis which forced him to give up the career as a player. He took up the job of umpiring because Cricket was always his first love. Billy Bowden became famous for his unique, one-of-a-kind umpiring signals, like not holding the index finger straight to signal a dismissal, but holding it crooked, which became famous as the “crooked finger of doom”.
