You had that there is a situation for 7runs per ball Can anybody explian the situations behind that pl?
When a batsman hits sixer on a no-ball its 7 runs per ball.
Although no-ball is not counted in over but it is said that 7 runs
are scored on 1 ball.
Threre's an example of a batsman getting 7 runs off 1 legal
ball,when in Australia(2006),Australia and England were playing in
an ashes test,flintoff bowled to Michael clarke and he hit down to
mid on,which hoggard went to chase down,the batsman took 3 runs in
meanwhile.hoggard chased the ball and threw to pieterson,then
pieterson,unnecessirilly,threw the ball to the wicketkeeper who
completely missed that one and the ball went on to b a four,so it
was 7 runs as a whole to Clarke off 1 legal ball.
Also, recently Andrew Symonds scored 8 on one delivery; the ball
was stopped short of the boundary while they ran four, then was
overthrown for the others.
