What happens if the non-striker, holding his gloves, drops one of them and the ball in play touches it?

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...

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...

I find no Law that specifically describes what would happen. However, it is a common convention that if the ball strikes a batter or their bat when running between wickets (so say they got between the fielder and wicket keeper and the ball deflects off them) then they do not run additional runs. If the contact was not intentional, they have the right to in the rules, but most batters will not take the extra runs. I suspect the same would apply here if the deflection off the glove was significant.

Note that if the Umpire deems that the batter deliberately obstructed the ball using their glove then they would be given out Obstructing the Field, however I assume you mean that the contact is...

Injured non-striker brings himself into game by balking a catch


There is a batsman with a runner. The runner is at the non-striker’s end. The injured batsman is standing at square leg, out of the game. The striker hits a ball, which is not a No ball, in the air towards the square leg fielder. The injured striker wilfully prevents a catch being taken. How should an appeal be answered?


This is the same situation as, with both batsmen fit, the non-striker obstructing a catch. In that case, although it is the non-striker who has obstructed the field, under Law 37.3 (Obstructing a ball from being caught) it is the striker who is out. Here, although the injured man has brought himself into the game by an act of obstruction, the same principle applies. It is the uninjured striker who is out.

In the sport of cricket, a dismissal occurs when the batsman is out (also known as the fielding side taking a wicket and/or the batting side losing a wicket). At this point a batsman must discontinue batting and leave the field permanently for the innings. A bowling team dismisses (or bowls out) the entire batting team by dismissing 10 of the 11 players (assuming player(s) from the batting team have not retired hurt or are absent). As the players bat in pairs, when only one person is undismissed, it is not possible for them to bat any longer.

Once dismissed, a batsman cannot score any more runs in that innings. Thus dismissal is often the best way to control the runs scored in an innings, and prevent the batting side from either achieving their target score or posting a large total for the fielding side to follow in the next innings.

Additionally, in Test cricket it is usually necessary for a side fielding last to have dismissed ten players of the opposing team in...

Thanks for the A2A, Vishnu Shijil

It's quite clear. Law 32 just says that the ball should touch the bat - that's all. As the book Tom Smith's Cricket Umpiring and Scoring makes clear, it doesn't matter if the ball touched any part of the striker's person either before or after. It might have hit his head or elbow or chest before hitting the bat - it's still out caught as per the laws. In other words, both pad-bat and bat-pad are out as far the "caught" dismissal is concerned.

Law 32.1: The striker is out Caught if a ball delivered by the bowler, not being a No ball, touches his bat without having previously been in contact with any fielder, and is subsequently held by a fielder as a fair catch, as described in 3 below, before it touches the ground.

The goalkeeper has a special function on a soccer team. He (gender non-specific) should be thought of as a regular field player with special capabilities only within his team's penalty area. That is, the goalkeeper is not restricted to stay in the penalty area. He may go anywhere. When the ball is outside of his penalty area, however, he is restricted to the same limitations as a field player. There are many provisions in the laws that are goalkeeper specific.

The goalkeeper must wear a jersey that is of different color from his team, the opponents (including the other goalkeeper), the referee and the referee assistants. The goalkeeper...

Goalkeeper CIWS


In many team sports which involve scoring goals, the goalkeeper (termed goaltender, netminder, goalie, or keeper in some sports) is a designated player charged with directly preventing the opposing team from scoring by intercepting shots at goal. Such positions exist in hurling, association football, Gaelic football, international rules football, handball, field hockey, ice hockey, water polo, bandy, rink bandy, lacrosse, floorball, and other sports.

Usually special rules apply to the goalkeeper that do not apply to other players. These rules are often instituted to protect the goalkeeper, being an obvious target for dangerous or even violent actions. In certain sports like ice hockey and lacrosse, goalkeepers are required to wear special equipment like heavy pads and a face mask to...

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket (a set of three wooden stumps) sited at each end. One team, designated the batting team, attempts to score as many runs as possible, whilst their opponents field. Each phase of play is called an innings. After either ten batsmen have been dismissed or a fixed number of overs have been completed, the innings ends and the two teams then swap roles. The winning team is the one that scores the most runs, including any extras gained, during their one or two innings.

At the start of each game, two batsmen and eleven fielders enter the field of play. The play begins when a designated member of the fielding team, known as the bowler, delivers the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, towards the wicket at that end, in front of which stands one of the batsmen, known as the striker. The striker "takes guard" on a...
