HERITAGEJUMADESERTCAMP - WD MEANS - WIDE BALL IN CRICKET A delivery is a wide if it is not sufficiently within reach for the batter to be able to hit it with the bat by means of a normal cricket stroke from where the batter is standing, and also would not have been sufficiently within reach for the batter to be able to hit it with the bat by means of a normal cricket stroke if the batter were standing in a normal guard position. Therefore a delivery is not a wide if the ball hits the bat or batter, or if the batter, by moving, causes the ball to be out of reach.
