Can a batsman get out on the 7th delivery of an over?


It's probably worth starting by noting that your understanding of the regulations is incorrect: bowlers are allowed two fast short-pitched deliveries per over in a One Day International. Quoting from the current regulations, section 42.4.1:

Law 42.6 (a) shall be replaced by the following:

a) A bowler shall be limited to two fast short-pitched deliveries per over.

(my emphasis). Perhaps you are getting confused with Twenty20 internationals where the limit is one bouncer per over?

In any case, further reading of section 42.4.1 also gives the definition of a fast short-pitched delivery:

b) A fast short-pitched delivery is defined as a ball which passes or would have passed above the shoulder height of the striker standing upright at the popping crease.

(again, my emphasis). This makes it clear that it doesn't matter if the batsman hits the ball or not - if the ball would have passed above shoulder height, it counts as one of the...

As we know that , a batsmen can get out in 11 ways-

1.Run Out

2.Caught Out


4.Hit the ball twice

5. Hit-wicket


7.Obstructing the field

8.Handling the ball

9.Retired Out

10.Stumped Out

11.Timed Out

According to the question, batsmen didn't attempted for run and the team has to get all out in just 9 balls, for this there are three cases which includes points no 9,10 & 11 respectively for getting out for at least one batsmen because these dismissals doesn't require any legal ball to be faced by the batsmen:


1st OVER:

1.first ball-No 1 gets out

2. on remaining 4 balls - NO 3,4,5,and 6 gets out

3. on last ball of the over-No 7 gets out on a wide ball(stumped out)

4.on last ball of the over(previous one was wide)-No 8 gets out

2nd OVER:

first ball- No 2 gets out because he will face the ball due to over change and No 9 will...

Well, a highly unlikely scenario....
Still here is the analysis:

Your gut feeling might tell you that the batsman walking in at number 8 would be the player left.
Reason: Straight forward. If the 1st over sees the fall of 6 wickets, number 8 walks in to find himself at the non striker's end due to the end of the over. And then sees the fall of remaining 4 wickets, to remain not out.


(1)There is this concept of crossing over, which states that "If the batsmen cross over before the completion of a catch, then the non striker gets the striker's end to face the next delivery and the incoming batsman would be at the non-strikers end."
(2)Also there is the "run out".

Now, with these to options, it is possible that ANY batsman (including the opener) can remain not out by the end of the 10 deliveries.

For the opener to remain not out:

(a)Get the non striker run out and reach the other end. Repeat the same for the 1st ball of next...

You were able to play only 18 Tests and 82 ODIs for New Zealand. Did you think of cutting back on your pace or shortening your run-up or changing your bowling action to reduce the stress on your body?
No. I had to remodel my action once I had surgery on my back. I spent a lot of time making adjustments. In terms of throttling back: no. In hindsight, perhaps I should have taken more time and dropped my pace a little bit. But I always felt that my success came from going 100% all the time. That was my role in the team. So I tried to prepare the best I could and fulfil that role. Unfortunately, a few injuries came along the way. But that's sport.

Did pride or ego get in the way?
No, I don't think so. My point of difference [from other bowlers] was my pace. If I dropped the pace to be more accurate, I would have fallen back into the pack and would have been competing with every other bowler. My ability to bowl 90mph added a different sort of variety...

There are a total of 11 different ways of getting out in Cricket. Also known as the mode of dismissals and in most of there 11 ways of dismissals, the bowling team has to appeal to the umpire for that dismissal.

So here’s taking a look at those 11 modes of dismissals in detail –

1. Bowled:

If the bowler’s delivery hits the stumps and bails get dislodged from the top of the stumps, the batsman is out. This is one of the most common dismissals in the game of cricket.

2. Caught

Basically there are 3 kinds of dismissials in this category caughts:

a. Caught by the fielder:

It is the dismissal in which the batsman hits the ball with the bat and the ball is caught by the fielder without the ball hitting the ground.

b. Caught and Bowled:

It is the dismissal in which the bowler who bowled the delivery took the catch himself without the ball hitting the ground.

c. Caught Behind:

It is the...

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.)

In the sport of cricket, an over is a set of six balls bowled from one end of a cricket pitch.

In a normal over, a single bowler delivers six balls in succession, from one end of the pitch, to the batsman at the other end. After six deliveries, the umpire calls 'over'; the fielding team switches ends, and a different bowler is selected to bowl an over from the opposite end of the pitch, while the batsmen do not change ends. The captain of the fielding team decides which bowler will bowl any given over, and no bowler may bowl two overs in succession.


An over must consist of six legal deliveries. If the bowler bowls a wide or a no ball, that illegal delivery is not counted towards the six-ball tally, and another delivery will need to be bowled in its place.[1]

In the event that a bowler is injured, or is sent out of the attack by the umpire (for disciplinary reasons, such as bowling beamers), during the middle of an over, a team-mate...

Dharamsala, Oct 3: India captain MS Dhoni said that two or three bad overs that saw too many boundaries being leaked cost them the first Twenty20 International against South Africa here.

Scorecard; Report; Series guide

Indian bowlers were unable to defend their 199-run total at the HPCA Stadium as South Africa took lead in three-match series with a comfortable 7-wicket win. (Fans attack umpire)

Young left-arm spinner Axar Patel was hammered around the park with Man-of-the-Match Jean-Paul Duminy (68 not out) hitting him for three sixes in the 16th over, collecting 22 runs.

Dhoni said it was imperative for the bowlers to make a strong comeback after being taken to task but that did not happen. (Kohli breaks a record)

"Looking at the conditions it was more of a war of batsmen. At times you have to take pressure off the bowlers, definitely the sides will hit big shots. Once you get hit, how you come back and bowl the next delivery that is very...

DHAKA: Bangladesh lost the one off test by 250 runs the first ever played on Indian soil 17 years after it got its official test status in 2000. By the margin it may sound one sided. But those who followed ball by ball progress of the match will tend to agree with me that Bangladesh fought tooth and nail with all they had for creating contest. With a little bit of luck and more commitment from top order batsmen they should possibly salvage a wi

True Bangladesh could not achieve that but batting over 100 over in each match in both innings it announced its appearance on India soil very strongly asking questions to ICC and BCCI why they are not invited to play on Indian soil more often?

Well it was not a completely one sided encounter. Bangladesh had...

Dhaka - A 14-year-old cricketer has died in Bangladesh after he was hit by a stump thrown by an angry batsman during a friendly game between neighbourhood teams, police said on Monday.

Faisal Hossain was fielding in the southeastern port city of Chittagong when the batsman was given out, assistant police commissioner Jahangir Alam told AFP.

"The batsman was furious when he was out. He grabbed a stump and threw it in the air. The stump hit part of the neck and head of Faisal who was fielding close to the wicket," he said.

"He collapsed on the ground in pain and was declared dead after he was taken to a hospital."

The batsman has been detained and will be prosecuted for causing unintentional death, police said.

Clashes are common over cricket in Bangladesh, where the sport is taken seriously even at village level.

Last May, a batsman wielding a stump allegedly beat a 16-year-old cricketer to death in Dhaka after the teenager taunted the...

Scenario Decision The batsman edges a fair delivery, and the wicket-keeper tries to catch it; instead, it lodges in his pads. A fast bowler delivers a bouncer; realising he cannot get out of the way in time, the batsman defends himself by blocking the ball with the hand not holding the bat. Having blocked a fair delivery, the batsman realises that the ball is bouncing towards his stumps, and so he prevents it from doing so by tapping the ball away with his bat. A fair delivery ricochets from the batsman's foot (hit on the full) to his knee; impact was in-line both times, but only the strike on the knee would've gone on to hit the wicket. The bowler fairly delivers a slower ball which the batsman misses; it strikes the off stump, and the bail slips from the top of off, but remains on top of middle stump. Well out of his ground, the striker can only watch as the wicket-keeper breaks the wicket with the upper arm of the hand in which he holds the ball. The umpire miscounts, and...

Bangladesh still need 166 runs to avoid the follow-on and make India bat again


At stumps, captain Mushfiqur was unbeaten on 81 with Mehedi not out on 51


Umesh picked two wickets while Ishant, Ashwin and Jadeja got one each

Bangladesh fought back against India through half centuries from Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan to reach 322 for six at the close of the third day's play in the one-off Test in Hyderabad on Saturday. (SCORECARD)

Bangladesh's most experienced pair of Shakib and Mushfiqur added 107 for the fifth-wicket before the latter combined with the 19-year-old Mehedi for an unbroken seventh-wicket partnership of 87 to frustrate the hosts. (Watched Kohli bat on TV and now learnt a lot playing against him: Mehedi Hasan)

In cricket, can two batman can be dismissed on the same delivery?

Sandip , Delhi, India

But what happens if the umpire does not respond to an LBW appeal, the batsmen run and one is run out. Does the second wicket take precedence over the first because the umpire did not respond in tine? Or does a late deliberation retrospectively make the ball dead after the appeal?

Nick Woollard, London

Fielders can appeal and umpires can deliberate and give decisions any time before the bowler has started bowling the next ball. Thus if the umpires feel it right, they can give the LBW, which means the ball was dead immediately after contact with the striker's person and so any subsequent run out, etc. does not hold. As for the original question, a new batsman getting timed out is a way for 2 batsmen to be out with the bowler bowling one ball. Another way is for the bowler to "mankad" the batsman off what would have been the next delivery. 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...

In the sport of cricket, batting is the act or skill of hitting the cricket ball with a cricket bat to score runs or prevent the loss of one's wicket. A player who is currently batting is denoted as a batsman, while the act of hitting the ball is called a shot or stroke. The term specialist batsman is also used generically to describe players who specialise in batting (as opposed to e.g. bowlers who specialise in bowling), and the term bowler is also used in this context. The latter term can, however, refer to any player during their turn at bat. In women's cricket, the term batswoman is sometimes encountered, as is batter, but the "male" form is widely used in both men's and women's cricket. Cricketers have to adapt to various conditions when visiting international pitches; this is...

What are the rules for calling a 'no ball'?
Mike Bennett, Epsom, Surrey

There are many circumstances in which an umpire may call a no ball. But the most common is when the bowler's front foot falls beyond the popping crease, which is the front line of the crease. The rules state some part of the foot must be on or behind the front line of the crease.

There are various other examples when the umpire will call a no ball:

If the batsmen run, for example, two on a no ball or wide, does the total increase by two or three runs?

Daisy-cutter -- See Shooter.

Dead ball -- When the ball is not in play, it is said to be 'dead'. The ball comes into play when the bowler starts his run-up, and becomes automatically dead when the umpire considers it to have 'finally settled' in the hands of the wicket-keeper or bowler, when a wicket falls, or when the ball reaches the boundary or when the umpire calls 'over' or 'time'. The umpire may call the ball dead at other times - for example, when the ball lodges in the batsman's clothing, or when a serious injury occurs to a player.

Declaration -- The decision of the batting captain to close his innings. Usually made in order to give his bowlers time to bowl the other side out to win the match, or delayed by twenty crucial minutes while the side's senior player struggles from 96 to 100.

Declaration bowler -- Inept bowler employed to allow the batting side to score quickly, usually in the hope of contriving a result...

Russell, Herts

If the non-striking batsman is advancing down the wicket as the bowler is about to bowl and the batsman is out of his crease, can the bowler run out the non-striker?

Yes, but it is seen as an extremely "ungentlemanly" way of dismissing a batsman, which goes against the spirit of the game.

You will rarely see this happening in any form of cricket.

However, if a bowler feels the non-striker is taking liberties, they can opt to oblige the umpire to "warn" the batsman by making to knock off the bails, without actually going through with it.

Harry, Sussex

If the batsman uses his helmet or his arm to stop the ball hitting the stumps instead of hitting the ball with his bat, would that be LBW?

Yes, an LBW dismissal doesn't necessarily have to hit the...
