@Ali Yasir, Gayle is quite an aggressive batsman. So the point of the cartoon is that Doctrove retired because he was worried that one of Gayle's shots might hit him in the head. That's why Gayle asks the question in the cartoon =D

Great cartoon! Spot on! :) nice way to connect both the things :)

Cos i was really wondering - that they shd seriously allow a helmet for umpires.. when they are so closely escaping so many times - it is only time before something tragic happens .. y allow tat .. just give a helmet or do something :) better for em ..

Umpiring is becoming as risky a position as short leg and silly point :) he he he
