What is it called when a batsman hits the ball behind him?

In cricket, it's just a hit ball: the batsman can run if he wishes. To counter this, the defense will often put several defending players behind (called the slips) if they think the batsman will hit back there. In baseball, you must hit within the foul lines; hitting that ball behind is called a foul ball. This is called a strike (one of three), although a non-caught foul ball will not be called as the third strike.
