LEFT: An Example VI Scorecard
Note that the ‘clock’ at the foot of the scorecard is printed ‘upside down’.
If the marker were to ‘read the clock’ as s/he sees it (i.e. the ‘right way up’ to the marker), it would be the ‘wrong way up’ to the bowler at the mat end.
The ‘upside-down, back-to-front’ clock printed at the foot of the scorecard is therefore an aide to the marker and, if called correctly, will give the players at the mat the correct information.
