Change of strike in case of batsman is bowled?

1

There should not be a change of strike if the batsman is bowled. The umpire made the correct decision by letting the new batsman face the next ball. This is covered by Law 18, which states that the rule of batsmen crossing only applies if the dismissal is Caught, Obstructing the field or Run out.

11. Batsman returning to original end

(a) When a batsman is dismissed, the not out batsman shall return to his original end [...] with the three exceptions of

Run out [...] Caught Obstructing the field,

for all other methods of dismissal.

Point 12 then goes on to detail what happens in the cases of Caught, Obstructing the field, and Run Out, which is that if the batsmen have crossed, the not out batsman faces the next ball.

12 Batsman returning to wicket he has left

(a) When a batsman is dismissed Caught, Obstructing the field or Run out [...], the not out batsman shall return to the wicket he has left but only if the batsmen had not...

As indicated in jimmithy's answer, batsmen have far greater leeway in the rules than bowlers. Exactly what batsmen can and cannot do is a controversial point at present, but 'switch hitting' is currently legal.

Bowlers must inform the Umpire, who in turn informs the batsmen of what side of the wicket they will bowl from and from which hand when they begin their spell. They need to inform the Umpire, who informs the batsmen, if they want to change it, but can do so as often as they like. That is all though, the style of bowling need not be declared, just the side of the wicket and hand.

Andrew Symonds, a former Australian cricketer, bowled both offspin and medium pace. Admittedly he was rubbish at both, but at least we was equally skilled in both styles. It was not uncommon for him to bowl spin to one batsmen and medium pace to another in the same over in order to take advantage of the perceived strengths and weakness of the two batsmen against the two styles of...

No. The ball shall not be considered as wide. Lets see how. ( adding a bit more on LBW as well)

The Law 25 of MCC - Wide Ball

Law 25.1 Judging a Wide

(a) If the bowler bowls a ball, not being a No ball, the umpire shall adjudge it a Wide if, according to the definition in (b) below, in his opinion the ball passes wide of the striker where he is and which also would have passed wide of him standing in a normal guard position.

(b) The ball will be considered as passing wide of the striker unless it is sufficiently within his reach for him to be able to hit it with his bat by means of a normal cricket stroke

Law 25.2 Delivery not a Wide

The umpire shall not adjudge a delivery as being a Wide

(a) if the striker, by moving, either (i) causes the ball to pass wide of him, as defined in 1(b) above or (ii) brings the ball sufficiently within his reach to be able to hit it by means of a normal cricket strike.

(b) if the ball touches...

Cricket is a team sport played between two teams of eleven. It is known for its rich terminology. Some terms are often thought to be arcane and humorous by those not familiar with the game.

This is a general glossary of the terminology used in the sport of cricket. Where words in a sentence are also defined elsewhere in this article, they appear in italics. Certain aspects of cricket terminology are explained in more detail in cricket statistics and the naming of fielding positions is explained at Fielding.

A

Across the line A batsman plays across the line when he moves his bat in a direction lateral to the direction of the incoming ball. Agricultural shot this is a swing across the line of the ball (resembling a scything motion) played without much technique. Often one that results in a chunk of the pitch being dug up by the bat. A type of a slog. All out when an innings is ended due to ten of the eleven batsmen on the batting side being either dismissed...

I feel that everything is in favour of the batting.

The pitches are rarely bowler friendly.
The boundaries are always in at least 5 or 10m.
The field restrictions in the 1st 6 overs

Although Twenty20 can give bowlers favourable stats, Twenty20 gives the bowlers no leeway. If they don't bowl perfectly there punished, and if they do bowl perfectly sometimes lucky slogs can punish them too.

Whilst a batsmen can get lucky in T20, he can edge a couple or sky a ball and get away with it and make 50. Bowlers never get away with it

Then there's antics like Broad being punished for trying to distract the batsmen in his run-up. That's absolute garbage.

Sunny Gavaskar said it in interview yesterday, the batsmen is allowed to move in his crease to try and alter the bowlers length, so why should Broad be punished for trying to disrupt the batsmen.

It's a batsmen's game,...

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...

It is clear that there must be some serious tinkering of the Laws of the game if "switch-hitting" is to be permitted.

It has been deemed legal for a batsman to change his hands in ALL cricket - playing defensively or positively - but consider this:

For the purposes of lbw, it has also been confirmed that the "handedness" of a batsman will be decided by the way he originally takes strike.

In Kevin's case, he is a right-hander, and his off stump will continue to be considered his off stump if he changes to left handed before the ball is bowled. That means he can be lbw to a delivery that pitches outside the off stump and hits him in line.

So, let me give you this scenario. Muttiah Muralitharan is bowling Sri Lanka to victory in a Test match with men around the bat, and the ball spinning sharply. Out goes a naturally right-handed batsman, who takes guard and assumes strike as a LEFT-hander.

The field is set accordingly and, crucially, his left-handed...

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...

Australia vs India, Sydney Cricket Ground, January 2004. Note how the pitch being used is merely one of many that can be in various stages of preparation.

Cricket is a bat and ball game played between two teams of eleven (with a "12th man" on hand in case of injury), normally in the local summer season. At international level, it is played primarily in three forms: Test cricket (played over five days), one-day cricket (a shortened form of the game, with each team batting one innings of up to 50 overs), and recently innovated "Twenty20" matches (20 overs per side).

Cricket is also played at state, provincial and county levels, and traditional matches between club, village and public house teams are still played in summer on the village greens of England and the playing fields, parks, school grounds and even, on a less formal level, the streets, backyards and beaches of cricket playing nations.

With spinners, many of the facing batsmen with try to smash it for six, usually over the spinner's head. Try placing a fielder at deep mid-on or deep mid-off. When the batsman mistimes the shot, the fielder can take a nice, easy catch into the bread basket. Also, place fielders deep if the batsman smashes it elsewhere (e.g., deep square leg, fine leg, point and cover). Don't place all of your fielders near the boundary, scatter some up close near the wicky because the batsman could block some and take easy singles, and, every once an awhile the spinner bowls the perfect ball and the batter nicks the ball to the slips or silly mid-on and that gives you many wickets for your...

A Test match between Australia and India in January 2004. The lighter strip is the cricket pitch. The men wearing black trousers on the far right are the umpires.

Cricket is a bat and ball sport, played between two teams of eleven players each. A cricket match is played on a grass field (which is usually roughly oval), in the centre of which is a flat strip of ground 22 yards (20.12 m) long, called a pitch. At each end of the pitch is a set of wooden stumps, called a wicket. A player from the fielding team (the bowler) propels a hard, fist-sized cork-centred leather ball from one wicket towards the other. The ball usually bounces once before reaching a player from the opposing team (the batsman), who defends the wicket from the ball with a wooden cricket bat. The batsman, if he or she...

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...
