Yes, by means of run out only! If the bowler hits the wicket at the non-strikers end before he actually bowls the ball then it is not given out!

Can you have a stumping and a run out at the same time in cricket?

No reason why not. If the keeper stumps the batsman at the striker's end then throws the ball to the bowler to whip the bails off at the other end with the non-striking batsman out of his crease, then they're both out.

What is a batsman in cricket?

In the sport of cricket, batting is the act or skill of hitting the cricket ball with a cricket bat to score runs or prevent the loss of one's wicket. A player who is currently batting is denoted as a batter, while the act of hitting the ball is called a shot or stroke. The terms batter or specialist batter are also used generically to describe players who specialise in batting (as opposed to e.g. bowlers who would specialise in bowling). During an innings two batter from the team bat; the batter facing the current delivery from the bowler is denoted the striker, while the other batter is the non-striker. When a batter is out, he is replaced by a team mate. This process continues until the end of the innings, whereupon the other team gets a turn to bat.

Can a sanctioned bowler bowl in a nonsanction league?

Yes. While a union may prohibit union workers from working non-union jobs, in the sport of bowling, there is nothing that prohibits a sanctioned bowler from participating in non-sanctioned events. However, if a bowler in a non-sanctioned league wishes to bowl in a sanctioned tournament, there may be rules that prohibit the bowler from participating, or require the bowler to purchase a sanctioned card and/or require, if a tournament that uses handicap, to use a higher average or not receive handicap.

How do you calculate your own cricket bowling speed?

Here is how to calculate the speed:Start with the number 20.12 (that is the length of a pitch used in international cricket, so i recommend that you take the distance of your own pitch in meters)Divide it by the number of seconds the ball takes to reach the wicket at the striker end from the moment it left your palm from the non striker end. Use a stopwatchAlternately, you can divide it by the number of mini seconds the ball takes to reach the wicket at the striker end from the moment it left your palm from the non striker end, multiply the result by 18, then divide the answer by 5. That will give you the answer in km/h.That is an accurate method of calculating your bowling speed if you don't have a radar gun, a speed gun (which if you buy, you will get more accurate and consistent results) or a speed ball, which comes cheap and measures your speed when you are bowling with it.If you want to get your speed in miles per hour,divide your answer above by 1.6.

If a bowler can no longer bowl and gives the team a 2 week notice and is paid up until then are they responsible to pay for the rest of the season?

In a contract league, the departing bowler is responsible for his payments up until a replacement bowler is found, and they fund their bowling fees themselves. In a non-contract league, the departing bowler has no obligation to pay anything after the date he/she leaves.

How to play cricket?

Step 1Gather peopleGather twenty-two players and two umpires on a 350-foot long, oval-shaped field with a 66-foot-long playing area, or pitch, in the middle, and divide the players into two teams.Step 2Gather equipmentGet the cricket ball, a cricket bat, wickets, stumps, and bails. Set the wickets up on either end of the pitch. Wickets comprise three vertical stumps and two horizontal bails.Step 3Set up the fieldSet up play by sending the fielding team onto the pitch, to try to catch the ball and prevent runs from being scored. Choose one player on the fielding team to be the bowler. the bowler will take the ball and stand behind the wicket opposite the batter. Elect a wicket keeper to squat behind the wicket behind the batter.TipThe bowler and wicket keeper should wear protective gear to avoid injury.Step 4Set up the battersSend two players of the batting team to bat -- a striker and a non-striker. The bowler runs and pitches the ball to the striker, who attempts to hit the ball. The non-striker will stand behind and wait to run. If the ball is hit, the two men run to the opposite end of the pitch.Step 5Know the outsKnow the ways of getting "out." The batter is out if a fielder catches the ball before it bounces, if the bowler hits a stump and knocks off a bail, if a fielder knocks a bail from a stump when the batters are going for a run, if the wicket keeper knocks a bail from a stump before the batter returns after hitting the ball, or if the ball hits the batter but the umpire thinks the ball would've hit the wicket had the batter not been in the way.Step 6Score runsScore runs by hitting the ball if you're a batter. After a batter hits the ball, both batters run to the opposite end of the pitch. Batters can repeatedly score runs by running back and forth to the wickets until the opposing team gets them out.TipIf a batter hits the ball past the far boundary of the field, their team is automatically awarded six runs. If the ball hits the ground before it passes the boundary, the team receives four runs.Step 7WinWin by scoring the most runs. An "inning" is complete when everyone on the batting team has batted. After each team plays one inning, the team with the most runs is the winner. If that happens to be your team, don't gloat. Cricket is a difficult but exciting sport -- cut the losing team a break.FactAlthough the origin of cricket is unknown, it is believed to have originated as early at the 13th century and was played by country boys who bowled at a tree stump.NAMIRA SHAHID
