Good, but the County Championship is probably a step too far

The first AB De Villiers reverse-sweep put me off my stride and I never recovered. :x

Got the 4th one wrong, the one that hits leg stump, I thought it was just drifting down the leg side

After years of never noticing it was pointed out to me last week that the statues in St Stephens Hall of famous parliamentarians in the Houses of Parliament are all in cricket umpire poses.

14/15.

Got probably the hardest one wrong (ball just going over the stumps on Test level).

You could see the leg stump fairly clearly past the batsman which is usually a clue it's got a chance.

Got number 4 wrong. I wasn't sure if it was sliding down leg so thought not out.

Same.

In fairness my umpiring experience has been solely officiating on my own social team where the answer is always 'not out' even if it was a toe crushing yorker hitting the batsman 6 inches in front of middle stump.
