EXTRAS

Extras are runs scored by means other than when the ball is hit by a batsman. Extras are not credited to any batsman, and are recorded by the scorer separately. The total number of runs for the innings is equal to the sums of the individual batsmen's scores and the extras. There are four types of extras: no balls, wide’s, byes, and leg byes.

  • No ball: The bowler must bowl each ball keep both his feet on the ground. Step bowlingwill be a NO-ball. The umpire at that end calls ``no ball'' immediately in a loud voice. The batsman may play and score runs as usual, and may not be out by any means except run out, handle the ball, hit the ball twice, or obstructing the field. Further, if the batsman does not score any runs from the ball, one run is added to the batting team's score. Also, the bowler must bowl an extra ball in his over to compensate.
  • Wide Ball: If the bowler bowls the ball far to one side or over the head of the batsman,so making it impossible to score, the umpire will signal the ball as a wide. This gives the batting team one run and the bowler must re-bowl the ball.
  • Byes:NO Byes run are allowed.
  • Leg Byes: No Leg Bye runs are allowed.
WAYS OF GETTING OUT (any kind of out batting team gets minus 5 runs) & (any kind of wicket it will be added to the bowler)
  • Caught: If a fielder catches the ball on the full after the batsman has hit it with his bat.However, if the fielder catches the ball, but either during the catch or immediately afterwards touches or steps over the boundary, then the batsman scores six runs and is not out.
  • Bowled: If the batsman misses the ball and it hits and breaks the wicket directly from thebowler's delivery. The batsman is out whether or not he is behind his popping crease. He is also out bowled if the ball breaks the wicket after deflecting from his bat or body. The batsman is not out if the wicket does not break.
  • (Leg before the Wicket): No LBW out in this league
  • Stumped: If a batsman misses the ball and in attempting to play it steps outside his crease,he is out stumped if the wicket-keeper gathers the ball and breaks the wicket with it before the batsman can ground part of his body or his bat behind his crease.
  • Run Out: If a batsman is attempting to take a run, or to return to his crease after an abortedrun, and a fielder breaks that batsman's wicket with the ball while he is out of the crease. The fielder may either break the wicket with a hand which holds the ball, or with the ball directly. It is possible for the non-striker to be run out if the striker hits the ball straight down the pitch towards the non-striker's wicket, and the bowler deflects the ball on to the wicket while the non-striker is out of his crease. If the ball is hit directly on to the non-striker's wicket, without being touched by a fielder, then the non-striker is not out. If the non-striker leaves his crease (inpreparation to run) while the bowler is running up, the bowler may run him out without bowling the ball. Batsmen cannot be run out while the ball is dead - so they may confer in the middle of the pitch between deliveries if they desire. In case of double run outs during the same play the one is out first will be dismissed.
  • Hit Wicket: If, in attempting to hit a ball or taking off for a first run, the batsman touches andbreaks the wicket. This includes with the bat or dislodged pieces of the batsman's equipment - even a helmet or spectacles!
  • Hit the Ball Twice: If a batsman hits a delivery with his bat and then deliberately hits the ballagain for any reason other than to defend his wicket from being broken by the ball. If the ball is bouncing or rolling around near the stumps, the batsman is entitled to knock it away so as to avoid being bowled, but not to score runs.
