Wide Ball: A ball bowled shall be deemed a wide by the umpire, at a point it crosses the batsman (in normal batting stance and has not touched the ball) if it is:

  • more than 30 inches away from the off stump on the offside, OR
  • at least 3 inches away from the leg stump on the leg side

The umpire has the final word on each call. However, the umpire shall mark with a chalk or tape the 30 inch and 3 inch points to assist in making the decision.

No Ball: A ball shall be deemed a no-ball if :

  • The bowler has over-stepped the popping crease, OR
  • The ball is a full-toss above the waist height of the batsman in normal stance.

Free Hit:- When a bowler bowls a foot-fault no ball (over stepping of the popping crease), the immediate next ball is designated a “Free Hit”, the batsman cannot be ruled out in any dismissal modes other than; run out, handled the ball, hit the ball twice and obstructing the field.

Tie Breaker:

  • In the event of a tied match, when both teams have an identical number of runs at the end of the allotted 8 overs. The tie is broken with a one over per side “Eliminator” or “Super Over”.
  • Eliminator or Super Over: Each team nominates three batsmen and one bowler to play one-over per side at the beginning of the Super Over. The nominated batsmen bats one over bowled by the nominated bowler of the opposition team bowler. The innings shall be deemed completed, if the batting team loses two wickets even before the over is completed. The team with higher score from the Super Over is declared winner of the match.
  • If the scores in the “Eliminator or Super Over” are tied or equal, then the winner of the match will be determined based on the following criteria
    • Fewer number of wickets lost by each team in the Super Over or
    • Max. no. of boundaries & sixes scored by the team
    • A coin toss, if above two criteria fails.

Standard rules to remember:

  • Both wides and no-balls will count as extra runs and an extra ball will have to bowl in the over.
  • Any runs (byes) scored off the wides or no-balls (byes, leg-byes, off the bat) will be credited as well.
  • A batsman can be stumped off a wide ball, or run-out off a wide and/or a no-ball.
  • A ball shall be deemed a dead ball if the ball is pitched before the halfway point of the pitch or has 2 pitches before the batsman in normal stance. An extra ball shall be bowled.
  • In a situation where the stumps are knocked down and the batsmen are looking to run an extra run (in an over throw situation), if there is a possibility of a run-out again - the fielders have to fix the stumps back in an upright normal position and then knock the stumps down again.
  • Mankading-out is allowed: The bowler is permitted, before entering his delivery stride, to attempt to run out the non-striker. The ball shall not count in the over. The umpire shall call and signal Dead ball.
  • Delivery Stride is defined as the stride during which the delivery swing is made; it starts when the back foot lands for that stride and ends when the front foot lands in the same stride.
