Can a wicket keeper catch the ball in front of the wicket and stump the batsman?
May 13, 2012 3:36PM
In principle yes; but it would require an amazingly agile keeper to spot the batsman out of his crease and put his hand in front of the stumps to grab the ball and knock the bails off.

The following are the ways of getting out in cricket: -Bowled - The stumps being uprooted -LBW- Leg before wicket, the ball hits the pad before bat just in front of stumps. -Catch out- The batsmen hits the ball in the air and is caught by any fielder or wicket keeper. -Caught and Bowled- The batsmen hits the ball in the air and is caught by the bowler who bowled the ball. -Run Out- The batsman attempting a run, isn't able to make the crease and the fielding side player has uprooted the stump with the ball. -Stumped- The batsman advances down the wicket in order to hit the ball but misses the ball and wicket keeper takes the ball and hits the stumps before the batsman reaches the crease back. -Hit wicket- The batsman hits the stumps with any part of his body or gear and the bails are uprooted. -Obstructing the field- The batsman tries to stop a ball when it is being fielded by the fielders. -Handling the ball- The batsman stops the ball with the hand in order to protect the bails. -Time out- The batsman is not able to get to the crease within prescribed period of time.

What ways can you be out in cricket?
There are 11 ways of getting out. The most common are bowled, caught, run out or LBW. The 11 are:- 1. Retired - If any batsman leaves the field of play without the Umpire's consent for any reason other than injury or incapacity, he is recorded as being Retired - out unless the opposing captain says he can play on. 2. Bowled - This is where the bowler's delivery hits the stumps and knocks a bail off the top, either directly or after being deflected by the bat or batsman's body. 3. Timed Out - If a new batsman isn't ready to bat within three minutes of the last batsman being out then the new batsman is out. 4. Caught - This is where the ball is caught by any of the fielding team after being struck by the bat or the batsman's gloves before the ball hits the ground. 5. Handled the Ball - If the batsman touches the ball without the fielders' permission then the batsman is out on appeal. 6. Hit the Ball Twice - This is where the batsman intentionally hits the ball twice with the bat, usually to stop the ball hitting the stumps or to stop the ball being caught. 7. Hit wicket - This is where the batsman knocks a bail off the top off the stumps either with the bat or leg. A batsman isn't out if the batsman hits the wicket to prevent a run-out or a part of the batsman's equipment falls off onto the stumps. 8. Leg Before Wicket (LBW) - If the batsman uses any part of his body to block a bowl that would have hit the wicket, then the batsman is out. The batsman is only out if the point of impact is within the lines between the batsman's and bowler's stump if the batsman hits a stroke or the ball hits the batsman outside the off-stump or between the lines between the stumps if the batsman doesn't hit a stroke. 9. Obstructing the Field - If the batsman obstructs the fielders either by actions or words then the batsman is out, but the batsman can stand in front of the fielders. The batsman can be given out for obstruction if they hit the ball being thrown back to the stumps. 10. Stumped - If the batsman steps over the crease and leaves no part of his body or bat on the ground behind the crease, then the wicket-keeper can knock a bail off the stumps then the batsman is out. This is usually done with spin bowling as the wicket-keeper is close to the stumps. 11. Run-out - This is where the fielder uses the ball to knock the bails off the stumps when the batsman is running between the creases. The batsman closest to the broken stumps is out. Batsmen can't be out if any part of the batsman's body or bat is behind the crease unless both batsmen are behind the same crease. A run-out can only be called if a fielder has touched the ball, so if the batsman hits the ball into the other batsman's stumps then no batsmen are out.

How do you play Cricket?
Ok, it has two teams, you play on an oval field which has a rectangular pitch, you play in the middle of it, the pitch is 22 yards in length, each team has 11 players, and generally 1 sub player, at the start of the game, the captain from each team goes out to the middle with the umpires. And you toss a coin and whoever wins the toss has a choice to bat or field first. Batting: when batting you have two batsman in centre at a time* The batsman are your openers, then you have between 5 and 7 middle order batmen, and then to follow between 2 and 4 lower order batsman, who are generally when you are fielding, your bowlers. Your objective when batting is to score as many runs as you can in the allotted number of overs, and to lose as few wickets as possible. Fielding: the fielding side has all 11 players out in the centre, the fielding side consists of a wicket keeper, a bowler and 9 fielders. A bowler's objective is to have as few runs scored off his over as possible and to try and take wickets. The fielder's objective is when the batsman hits the ball, to stop runs from actually being scored by stopping the ball. Runs: Runs can be scored in singles, twos, threes, fours and sixes, fours and sixes are called boundaries, this is when the batsman hits the ball and it goes over the boundary rope (the outer marking of the field). A four is a boundary along the ground - having bounced, a six is when it goes over the boundary rope without touching the ground. There are other types of runs, generally called extras, they consist of wides, leg byes, byes, no balls. These are generally contributed when the bowler or fielder make a mistake. Wickets: There are a numbers of ways of getting out while batting: * You can be bowled - when bowler bowls ball and it hits your wickets. * You can be caught - bowler bowls ball, you hit it, and a fielder, wicket keeper or bowler catches the ball before it bounces. * LBW - Leg Before Wicket - ball hits leg while standing in front of wicket. See: * Run-out - The ball is returned to the stumps and the bails are dislodged (with the ball) from the stumps before the running batsman makes his ground. * Stumped - The batsman, when trying to hit a ball bowled at him, leaves his ground and the wicket-keeper succeeds in dislodging the bails from the stumps before the batsman can remake his ground.

How do you accumulate points when you are playing cricket?
Assuming you are American, you can picture a baseball park, except instead of being an irregular shape, the playing surface is almost circular, or at least an oval. In the middle of the playing surface is what is called the wicket. It's a strip of what used to be grass rolled and squeezed to be the color and consistency almost of concrete. It's about 60 feet long and at each end are three round posts about 30 inches high and an inch or so thick spaced about four inches apart. A batter has to guard against the pitcher (or in cricket terms, a bowler) hitting these posts (called stumps) with the ball, so obviously instead of the ball getting to the hitter (or batsman) on the fly, he usually bounces it somewhere in front of the batsman. Where he bounces it makes the ball do different things: it could swing in or out like a slider, or take off like a rocket and play some "chin music." Hitting a batsman in the head or body gives the batsman nothing free except a bruise; there's no take your bas in cricket. Now, I said that there is a batsman at each end, so it makes sense that one is trying to hit the ball and one is doing nothing. When the batsman hits the ball, he can decide whether or not it is safe enough to run: he does not have to run if he hits the ball straight at a fielder along the ground (if the fielder catches it on the fly, the batsman is out). If he decides it is safe, he calls the guy who is just watching, and they sprint to the other end of the wicket. Each time they get to the other end before the ball comes back from the outfield is one run to add to the total They can save some energy if the batsman hits the ball hard enough to reach the perimeter of the playing surface. Instead of a fence, there is a rope, and if the ball bounces over the rope he is automatically given four runs without running anywhere. If he hits it hard enough to go over the rope without bouncing first, he gets six runs to add to his total (and the team total, of course). Unlike a batter in baseball, who sits down after a homer, the batsman stays out playing. He can only sit down when he is out, and because cricket is usually played over either a whole day or a full five days, he needs to stay out there as long as he can to pile up as many runs as he can before he is either out by being caught, or the bowler hits his stumps with the ball, or the catcher (or wicket-keeper) can hit the stumps with the ball while the batsman is out of the equivalent of the batter's box. He can also be called out by the umpire if the umpire thinks the ball would have hit the stumps except the batsman's legs were in the way. The umpire can add a run to the team total (but not the batsman's total) if he thinks the bowler sent down a ball so wide that the batsman couldn't have reached it with 10-foot arms. Sometimes the bowler sends down a ball so fast and so hard that it sails over the head of both batsman and wicketkeeper and races away to the rope and over it, in which case that's four to the team total (but again, not to the batsman). A batsman will usually get mild applause at 50 (or wild applause if it a number 9 batsman grittily refusing to go down) and extra applause at 100, which is quite a nice score in the modern age. Very rarely, on a day when the wicket is not helping a bowler who relies on speed and in or outswing to fool a batsman, he can hit 200. Only extremely rarely does 300 come up for a batsman. Some days a whole team can be skittled out for less than 70 in just a few hours; on others the same team can take a day and a half or more to pile up 550 before the other team gets a chance to bat. That's the short version, anyway. Phil

What is the difference between cricket and baseball?
Cricket and Baseball are two games that appear similar in many ways but bear a lot of differences between them when it comes to their game play, rules, field and the like. Although balls used in cricket and baseball look alike, the cricket ball is heavier than the base ball. Cricket is played for two innings each side whereas baseball players play several innings. The bat used in the game of baseball is round and it breaks often. On the other hand the bat used in the game of cricket is flat and strong and does not break often. It is true some of the well-made cricket bats last for decades. The three major types of players in the game of baseball are batter, pitcher and the catcher. On the other hand the three important types of players in the game of cricket are the batsman, the bowler and the wicket-keeper. The various positions taken by the players in the game of baseball are self explanatory. On the other hand the various positions taken by the players in the game of cricket are characterized by various names such as mid-off, mid-on, fine leg, deep fine leg, long leg, mid wicket, silly mid on, silly mid off, deep mid wicket, square leg, point, deep square leg, gully slip, leg slip, cover, extra cover, long on and long off. The pitcher should not drop the ball or bounce the ball in front of the batter in the game of baseball. On the other hand the bowler has to bounce the ball in front of the batsman in the game of cricket. A run is completed by the batsman in the game of cricket to increase the score of his team. On the contrary the term run in baseball means 'achievement'. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cricket Description--- Indian guy Baseball Description--- American Friend - state player

What are the rules for lbw in cricket?
This rule is fairly complex, a basic overview of the rule is provided below: - The ball hits the batsman in front of the stumps before hitting his/her bat and in the opinion of the umpire, if it had not been blocked by the batsman's body, would have gone on to hit the batsman's stumps. - In practice there are a number of subtleties to the rule, for example: * If the ball hits the batsman outside the line of the off stump and the batsman was playing a genuine shot (but missed the ball), then he cannot be given out. * If the ball pitches outside the line of the leg stump, the batsman can never be given out, even if he does not play a shot.
