Bowled after scoring a run


When a ball is batted in the air and then caught, but it was called a no ball (so they can't be dismissed caught), will the batting team score any regular runs of the ball they completed (and can they potentially be run out)?

Two similar situations happened in two different IPL matches, but was seemingly treated differently.

In ball 19.5 of the second innings of the 32nd IPL 2015 match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals, there was a run-out after a no ball was caught (an additional run was also scored, the run-out happened when they attempted a second).

Vinay Kumar to Binny, (no ball) 1 run, OUT, another full toss, in the air again and he's caught at long-on. This was definitely over the waist, and is called no-ball. Pollard doesn't realise that and throws the ball late, which makes Southee comes back for the second. But his throw is accurate and Vinay takes the bails off casually, catching Southee's bat short despite the dive. A no ball, a run, a...

Shouldn't he run as fast as he can, just in case he can get to the other end before the ball is taken?

By this you want to say that a batsman should take a run before he cought out. So they win before he get out.


9. Runs scored when a batsman is dismissed

When a batsman is dismissed, any runs for penalties awarded to either side shall stand. No other runs shall be credited to the batting side, except as follows.

If a batsman is,

(a) dismissed Handled the ball, the batting side shall also score the runs completed before the offence.

(b) dismissed Obstructing the field, the batting side shall also score the runs completed before the offence.

If, however, the obstruction prevented a catch from being made, no runs other than penalties shall be scored.

(c) dismissed Run out, the batting side shall also score the runs completed before the wicket was put down.

If, however, a...

With your action, go back to whatever feels natural. Don't think about what your doing too much just bowl, you'll need to practice it for a while to get it consistent.

For your run up, I'd experiment to find something that works for you. You want to be comfortable and balanced when you reach the crease so try different lengths of run up until you find the one that suits you.

Ideally, you have to find these things for yourself, other people can advise on how to find it or fine tune what you have but you should try and work your own basic action and run up out for yourself as this will help you throughout your cricket career. Good Luck and have patience with the...

John Lawrence, known as "Johnny", was a diminutive Yorkshire-born all-round cricketer whose middle or lower order batting and leg-break and googly bowling were of great importance to Somerset in the 10 cricket seasons immediately after the Second World War.

Early career and playing style[edit]

Born at Carlton, Leeds, on 29 March 1911, Lawrence made his name in the Bradford Cricket League in the 1930s, but was not able to break into the strong Yorkshire side, though he played Second Eleven cricket at Minor Counties level.[1] He qualified by residence to play for Somerset at the end of 1939 but then had to wait until after World War II before making his debut, by which time he was 35 years old.[2]

Short and enthusiastic, Lawrence was a pugnacious batsman who, according to one account, "could on occasions bat with irremovable resolve". As a bowler, in the description of the cricket writer Alan Gibson, Lawrence was "one of the slowest bowlers I have ever seen....

Francis James Cameron, MBE (born 1 June 1932), is a former New Zealand cricketer who played 19 Tests for New Zealand as a fast bowler.

He took three five-wicket-hauls in an innings during his Test career for New Zealand, two of them during his first tour against South Africa in 1961–62, where New Zealand drew 2–2 in the 5–Test series. During that series, he was dismissed once in nine innings, and finished with a batting average of 17. In 30 Test innings, he ended up not out in two thirds of them, which might have contributed to his career batting average of 11.6 - he only made it into double figures three times with the bat.


Cameron was born in Dunedin, Otago. He made his Test debut at Kingsmead in Durban along with five other New Zealanders, and he took six wickets in that first match, more than any other New Zealand bowler bar Jack Alabaster. However, though his bowling helped to keep the winning target down to 197, New Zealand lost the match by...

Bowler Shaun Pollock bowls to batsman Michael Hussey. The paler strip is the cricket pitch. The two sets of three wooden stumps on the pitch are the wickets. The two white lines are the creases.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball sport contested by two teams, usually of 11 players each. A cricket match is played on a grass field, roughly oval in shape, at the center of which is a flat strip of ground 22 yards (20.12 m) long, called a cricket pitch. At each end of the pitch is a construction of three parallel wooden stakes (known as stumps) driven vertically into the ground, with two small crosspieces (known as bails) laid across the top of them. This wooden structure is called a wicket. Cricket has drawn many comparisons to the American pastime of baseball, with both playing with innings, a bat and ball. While a home run is the best hit in baseball, the "sixer" in cricket gives six runs on one hit.

Cricket has been an established team sport for hundreds of years. It...

HOUSTON (AP) — They looked old and outmanned. Their star quarterback was frazzled, their stingy defense was a sieve.

But Tom Brady and the New England Patriots shrugged and did what they always seem to do: Win the Super Bowl.

Brady led one of the greatest comebacks in sports history highlighted by a Julian Edelman catch that was almost beyond belief. The Patriots pulled themselves out of a 25-point hole against the Atlanta Falcons to a 34-28 win for New England’s fifth NFL championship. It was the first Super Bowl decided in overtime.

“There were a lot of plays that coach talks about, you never know which one is going to be the Super Bowl winner,” said Brady, who earned a record fourth MVP award and a fifth Super Bowl ring, the most for a quarterback. “There were probably 30 of those plays tonight and (if) any one of those were different, the outcome could have been different.”

But down 28-3 in the third quarter, Tom?

“It’s hard to imagine us...

Background Information

SOS Children have produced a selection of wikipedia articles for schools since 2005. SOS Children works in 45 African countries; can you help a child in Africa?

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible while the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by the batting team. A run is scored by the striking batsman hitting the ball with his bat, running to the opposite end of the pitch and touching the crease there without being dismissed. The teams switch between batting and fielding at the end of an innings.

In professional cricket the length of a game ranges from 20 overs of six bowling deliveries per side to Test cricket played over five days. The Laws of Cricket are maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the...

Everybody agrees that the most popular sport in the world today is soccer. But which is the second most popular? Is it basketball? Maybe rugby? Tennis perhaps? No, as you've probably guessed by now, the answer seems to be cricket. The reason for this is that cricket is the number one sport in many countries with huge populations, such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is popular in many other countries as well, including the U.K., Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Cricket is, like baseball, a "bat and ball" game in which bowlers "bowl" the ball and batsmen try to hit "shots" with a bat and score runs for their team. As in baseball, batsmen are "out" if their shot is caught, or if they don't get to a "safe haven" in time when they're making runs. What is very different, however, is the time taken to play the game. In cricket, a single game in the traditional "Test match" format can take five full days to complete! But thankfully there are shorter formats for...

Describe Cricket Rules here.

No, really, please do; it seems to be some organized form of Calvin Ball.

OK then, here's an outline Edit

The laws of Cricket are complex; but, to use video game terminology, at the core are game mechanics shared with baseball and softball:

only Hard Ball is Allowed in International Cricket,which is made of Leather [1] According to ICC International Cricket Council .

A strike zone, which the batter ("batsman", always, even if the batsman is female) defends from the pitcher ("bowler"). In baseball, this is an area loosely defined by the umpire. In cricket, it is the area defined by those three wooden sticks in the ground: the stumps, a.k.a the wicket. When the ball hits the stumps, that‘s an out. The batter hits the ball to score runs and is out if the hit is caught on the full. Further is usually better, and hitting the ball into the crowd brings the most runs with no possibility of getting out. Cricket...

Assuming that the ball knocked one or more bails off, then provided no-one on the fielding side touched the ball before it hit the stumps, the batsman would be out Bowled under Law 30.1 parts (a) and (b):

The striker is out Bowled if his wicket is put down by a ball delivered by the bowler, not being a No ball, even if it first touches his bat or person [...] he shall not be out Bowled if before striking the wicket the ball has been in contact with any other player or an umpire.

Under Law 18.9, no runs would be scored:

When a batsman is dismissed, any runs for penalties awarded to either side shall stand. No other runs shall be credited to the batting side, except [under certain circumstances not relevant to the current scenario]

For reference, the completion of a run does not make the ball dead. None of the events in Law 23.1(a) had occurred, and neither had both sides "ceased to regard it as in play", as stated by Law...

In cricket, to score a run, a striker must hit the ball and run to the opposite end of the pitch, while his non-striking partner runs to his end. Both runners must touch the ground behind the popping crease with either his bat or his body to register a run. If the striker hits the ball well enough, the batsmen may double back to score two or more runs. At times, four or more runs may be scored off a single ball in this fashion. This is known as running between wickets. However, if a fielder knocks the bails off the stumps with the ball while no batsman is grounded behind the nearest popping crease; the nearest batsman is run-out. (See: Dismissal of a Batsman for more details.) The batsmen will elect to run only when they believe they have a good chance of scoring runs without getting out in this fashion. If the striker hits the ball to a nearby fielder, the batsmen may simply choose not to run.

If the batsman hits the ball such that the fielders fail to stop it reaching the...

In the sport of cricket a No ball is a penalty against the fielding team, usually as a result of an illegal delivery by the bowler. For most cricket games, especially amateur games, the definition of all forms of No ball is from the MCC Laws of Cricket,[1] although youth cricket often has stricter rules on beamers, and international cricket has stricter rules on beamers, but laxer rules on bouncers.

The delivery of a No ball results in one run – two under some Regulations – to be added to the batting team's score, and an additional ball must be bowled. In addition, the number of ways in which the batsman can be given out is reduced except for run out. In shorter competition cricket, a batsman receives a 'free hit' on the ball after any kind of No ball (see below). This means the batsman can freely hit one ball with no danger of being out in most ways.

No balls due to overstepping the crease are not uncommon, especially in short form cricket, and fast bowlers tend to...

An Explanation of Cricket


Cricket is a team sport for two teams of eleven players each. A formal game of cricket can last anything from an afternoon to several days.

Although the game play and rules are very different, the basic concept of cricket is similar to that of baseball. Teams bat in successive innings and attempt to score runs, while the opposing team fields and attempts to bring an end to the batting team's innings. After each team has batted an equal number of innings (either one or two, depending on conditions chosen before the game), the team with the most runs wins.

(Note: In cricket-speak, the word "innings" is used for both the plural and the singular. "Inning" is a term used only in baseball.)

Cricket Ball: Hard, cork and string ball, covered with leather. A bit like a baseball (in size and hardness), but the leather covering is thicker and joined in two hemispheres, not in a tennis ball pattern. The seam is thus like an...

How To Keep Score For A Game Of Bowling

The Basics of Keeping Score

Even with automatic scoring, it's a good idea to know the fundamentals of keeping score in the sport of bowling. After all, you have to know how to keep score if you want to know what you need to bowl to beat your opponent for either competition or just for fun!!

First, what is a game of bowling? Some people get confused when they hear the phrases "per game" or "per game per person." A game of bowling consists of 10 frames, in which a bowler has two chances per frame to knock down all ten pins. If a bowler knocks down all ten pins in those two turns in the 10th frame, an extra bonus chance is awarded.

So, when we say "per game" or "per game per person," that means each 10 full frames bowled by each person. So if two people bowl one game each (10 frames each) they have bowled a total of two games. Our Automatic Scorers can fit six people on each...

Rounders is an ancient field game for two teams that is popular in schools and is the ancestor of more modern sports like Baseball and Softball.

Rounders Equipment & Preparation

The equipment needed for rounders consists of a truncheon shaped rounders bat, a rounders ball and 4 posts set out in a diamond shape. A traditional ball is hard and covered in leather although safer, softer balls for schools are also available.

The pitch features a bowler's square (2.5m) which is 7.5m from the batter's square (2m). 1 metre behind the batter's square the Backstop line should be marked. The four posts are positioned around the bowler's square as shown in the diagram (black lines show lines that should be marked; green lines are for measuring only).

Of course, if you are just playing in the park or your garden, exact dimensions don't matter and shrubberies and flower beds may come into play...
