10 Ways Get Out!

Add to Playlist

Did your kids know that Sachin can get out in 10 ways, in the World Cup final? That's right! Read on, and increase your children's cricketing knowledge. and yours! 

10 ways of getting out in cricket:

1] Caught: The batsman hits the ball and a fielder catches it before it hits the ground. 
If the fielder steps over the boundary to catch the ball, or immediately after catching the ball, it is declared a six. or No ball

2] Bowled: The ball hits the wickets either because the batsman missed it or because it deflected off his bat or body. 
Exceptions: No ball 

3] Stumped: The batsman steps out of the crease to take a ball, misses it, and the wicket keeper catches it and removes the bails of the wicket before the batsman or his bat re-enters the crease. 
No ball

4] Hit wicket: The batsman breaks the wicket with his bat or with any other part of his body or equipment. This is called Hit Wicket. 
Wide or No ball

5] Leg Before Wicket (LBW): The batsman misses the ball, but blocks it with his legs so it doesn't hit the wicket. The ball would have hit the wicket if the legs had not been in the way. The fielders must appeal. Howzzat!?
No ball or If the ball hit the bat before the legs of the batsman

6] Run out: The batsman is trying to take a run, and the fielder hits the wicket before the batsman or his bat is inside his crease.  Also, if the non-striker steps out of his crease before the bowler has bowled, the bowler may simply lift the bails off the wicket and the non-striker is deemed run-out. This is, however, deemed unfair play. The batsmen may leave their crease in between balls (deliveries), to chat. The ball is deemed at 'dead ball' between deliveries. 

7] Handling the ball: The batsman holds the ball without the permission of the fielding side. 
This does not include a non-deliberate attempt to touch the ball, e.g. being hit on the hand with the ball

8] Hit the ball twice: The batsman hits the ball a second time, hard, with the purpose of scoring a run. 
The batsman hits the ball the second time to prevent it from hitting his wicket.

9] Timed out: If one batsman is out, and the second batsman doesn't appear on the field to bat within 2 minutes, he is timed out. This, of course, almost never happens. 

10] Obstructing the field: The batsman deliberately comes in the way or tries to prevent a fielder from reaching the ball, so he can complete a run. 
The batsman is allowed to run between the fielder and the wicket, but cannot make any deliberate action to divert the fielder or the ball.

What is a no-ball?

A bowler must bowl the ball, with his foot behind a crease, called the popping crease. If his front foot is outside the crease, it is a no-ball. The runner gets one run if he hasn't managed to score any runs for this delivery, and the bowler has to bowl an extra delivery that over, as the no-ball is not counted. 

What is a wide?

A wide is when the ball bounces far from the batsman, and is essentially out of his reach. An additional run is given, and the bowler must bowl another delivery. However, if the batsman reaches out, hits the ball, and is caught, he will be declared out, unlike as in a no-ball.

Under the heading is also necessary that atleast one bail falls, when the Ball hits any of the wickets. Just the ball hitting the wicket is not enough to declare OUT.

the article is interesting but i think if the batsman hits the ball again to avoid being bowled he is out???
