A batsman running for a run and fielder throws the ball to the wicket and hits it before the batsman completes the run is run out in cricket.
Yes it is. Law 32 section 3 paragraph e states that a fair catch is made when "a fielder catches the ball after it has touched an umpire, another fielder or the other batsman" (2000 MCC laws of cricket 3rd edition 2008)
You may be thinking of being caught. If a fielder catches the ball after it has been hit by the batsman from a valid ball, within the field of play and before it hits the ground then the batsman is out - caught.
If the neither the batsman or the bat are touching the ground in the crease when the ball hits the wickets, the batsman is out. This is why it is important to 'grind your bat' as you run in.
They have to catch the ball or get the ball and touch it on one of the posts. From Smiley.
For there to be a legal catch, there must be a catch and voluntary release of the ball. Therefore, if the ball knocks the glove off the fielder's hand, he didn't meet either of the criteria for a catch: he didn't catch it, and he didn't release the ball voluntarily.
Not out. See Law 32.3e (a fair catch). If the ball hits a fielder's protective helmet this is not a fair catch and the batsman is not out, although the ball remains in play. MCC Laws of cricket: http://www.lords.org/laws-and-spirit/laws-of-cricket/laws/law-32-caught,58,AR.html However, if the helmet was on the ground and not his head, then the fielding team is penalised 5 runs and the ball is declared dead - he is not out.
Yaa, if someone takes a catch then the batsman is out definitely.
