It depends. If the batter tried to make contact with the ball, it is a strike. If the batter's hand was in the strike zone, it is a strike. Otherwise, it is a hit by pitch.

2 batsmen on 94 each 7 to win off 3 balls fall of wicket is not allowed both reach 100 how?

Batsman 1 hits the 1st ball behind the keeper and the ball hits bat pad fielder helmet which is behind the keeper, so batsman 1 gets 5 runs and in the next ball batsman 1 scored another one run. So batsman 1 reached 100 runs and he crossed the pitch. Now 1 ball, 1 run to win and batsman 2 is about to strike. He hits the amazing six which makes him score the century and also team won the match. So in 3 balls both the batsman scored their century without fall of wicket. I hope above is the right answer. Thank u Regards, Karthick Batsman 1 hits the 1st ball to 4 runs in the next ball batsman 1 scored 3 runs but umpire declares one run short now batsman 1 complete his century and batsman 2 is on strike and team needs one run to win Now 1 ball, 1 run to win and batsman 2 is about to strike. He hits the amazing six which makes him score the century and also team won the match. Regards, Sanjit
