Cricket Rules: Types of Dismissal from Bowled To Timed Out

By Nidhi Singh

"Bowled out" is a dismissal where the bowler's delivery hits the stumps, causing the bails to fall, and the batsman is out.

Bowled

"Catch out" is when a fielder catches the ball cleanly after the batsman hits it with the bat or pad without the ball touching the ground.

Caught

Batsman can be given out as LBW if the ball would have hit the stumps but for their leg obstructing its path. It's a complex rule with specific criteria, including the ball's line with the stumps and its height.

Leg Before Wicket (LBW)

Batsman is run out when fielding team dislodges bails before batsman reaches crease, often during a run attempt.

Batsman is out if they hit their own stumps accidentally with body or equipment during a shot or follow-through.

Hit Wicket

Batsman can be out if they touch the ball with their hand (not part of the bat) while it's in play, without an appeal from the fielding side.

Handled the Ball

A batsman can be dismissed if they deliberately strike the ball for the second time after their initial shot. This is a rare mode of dismissal.

Hit the Ball Twice

If a batsman deliberately obstructs the fielding side while the ball is in play, they can be given out for obstructing the field.

Obstructing the Field

A batsman can be dismissed if they take too much time to come to the crease after the fall of a wicket or to resume play after an interruption.

Timed Out

Mankading is rare; the bowler runs out the non-striker at the bowler's end if they leave the crease early. It's controversial and requires a warning from the bowler.
