HERITAGEJUMADESERTCAMP - WD MEANS - WIDE BALL IN CRICKET A delivery is a wide if it is not sufficiently within reach for the batter to be able to hit it with the bat by means of a normal cricket stroke from where the batter is standing, and also would not have been sufficiently within reach for the batter to be able to hit it with the bat by means of a normal cricket stroke if the batter were standing in a normal guard position. Therefore a delivery is not a wide if the ball hits the bat or batter, or if the batter, by moving, causes the ball to be out of reach.

What are the main rules in the sport of cricket?

There are many rules involved in the sport of cricket. Cricket is a game played with a bat and ball. There should be two teams of 11 players. To make sure the rules are obeyed, there are also two umpires present in a game of cricket. To score runs you must hit the ball and then run between the wickets. If you hit the ball to the boundary of the field you score a 4 and over the boundary you score a 6. If the ball hits your legs when you are batting this is called Leg Before Wicket (LBW) and you will be out. In order to get a player 'out', a fielder must catch the ball after it has been hit or throw the ball at the players wickets whilst they are still running. If you bowl the ball too wide, you must bowl it again.
