Stumped!

1. What is the umpire signaling?

















2.
It harks back to when I was a kid playing village cricket down in Devon... I would usually jump, but maybe hop depending on what time of day it is, how long I've been out there or how hot the weather is... Then I did it in my second Test match at Edgbaston and someone wrote into dear old Brian Johnston on Test Match Special and he let the cat out of the bag... I've been stuck with it ever since!
Identify the speaker. What is he talking about?


3. An insignificant question. Identify.
