Best Answer

This concept is unique to Twenty20 cricket. If a bowler is called for a "No Ball" because a bowler overstepped the popping crease, then the bowler's next delivery is declared a "Free Hit," which means that a batsman cannot be dismissed by a catch, Bowling, LBW, or stumping. He can only be dismissed by those methods that happen to be allowed under a No Ball--most notably run out.

A free hit is a penalty awarded to a team for an minor offense by the team. It can be awarded to either team anywhere between the 23 metre lines, to the defense anywhere in their own 23 metre area, and to the attack within the 23 metre area but outside the circle they are attacking.

A free hit is awarded after a front foot no-ball (when the bowler oversteps) The next delivery after the no-ball is a free hit. The batsman cannot be out off a free hit except run out.

the captain of fielding side cannot change the field unless the batmen have changed sides(i.e., they have taken a single)

After a "Free hit" is given after a no ball in one day cricket, the field remains as it was when the original ball was delivered.

A free hit is when the opposite team either hit the ball of their feet or use the wrong side of the stick or even if there are 2 people from the same team on the ball.

If a bowler delivers a no ball by overstepping the crease, one free hit is granted to the batsman.
