    This is true if the boundary peg is not straight, ie. vertical, but not if the boundary peg is not in the correct place ie on the wrong mark.

    I think the word adjustment indicates it was not vertical,but another valid point though

    What are the Umpires options and if he decides to replace the jack, do the ends already played count?
    I have a question: If he complains the jack is too heavy and is struggling to get the Jack to 23 meters, what must he be saying when he then has to bowl his woods, which are far heavier?.
    I am sure you would understand when I say 'I am very baffled' by someone who would complain about a lighter ball, but does not say a thing about his much heavier woods.

    An experienced lead would have noticed the minute he picked the jack up,the technique in bowling a jack and a wood are completely different,if the jack is wrong and he is playing with the heavy jack it will not be travelling like the lighter one,hence he will not be delivering it like he would want too.i am just amazed it took a few ends to realise the problem.
