11 Ways of being Dismissed in Cricket Sport

Out! And that is a very common scream you get to hear on Sunday morning at the park near you. Am I right? There are 11 different ways of getting out in Cricket. This is also known as the form of dismissals. We are talking about the dismissals because when you are playing the trending fantasy cricket games at popular sites like and are an ardent fan of cricket, you need to know every bit about it.

Hence, in most of the 11 ways of dismissals, the bowling team has to appeal to the umpire for that dismissal.

So here take a look at those 11 modes of dismissals in detail and start playing online cricket games:

1. Bowled:

If the delivery of a bowler strikes the stumps and bails get removed from the top of the stumps, the batsman is out. This is one of the most common dismissals in any match of cricket.

2. Caught

To be precise, there are 3 kinds of dismissals in this category:

a. Caught by the fielder:

It is the dismissal in which the batsman hits the ball with the bat and the ball is caught by the fielder without the ball reaching the ground.

b. Caught and Bowled:

It is the dismissal in which the bowler who bowled the delivery had taken the catch himself without the ball reaching the ground.

c. Caught Behind:

It is the dismissal where the batsman is caught at the slips or by the wicket-keeper.

3. Stumped:

If the batsman steps out of the crease to play the ball, leaving no part of himself or the bat behind the crease and the wicket-keeper is capable of removing the bails from the top of the wicket with the ball that is in his hands, the batsman is out. A stumping can be generally affected from slow or medium-paced bowling.

4. Hit the ball twice:

If the batsman strikes the ball twice, he could be out. The 1st strike is when the ball has hit the batsman or his bat and the second strike, if deliberate, whether it is from bat, foot or anything at all, batsman is out. Right up until now, no batsman in cricket has been out in this manner.

5. Hit wicket:

If the batsman dislodges the stumps along with his own body or bat while in the case of taking a run or hitting a shot, the batsman is out.

6. Obstructing the Field:

If the batsman by actions blocks a fielder, then he is out. A batsman is given out preventing the field if he intentionally strikes the ball that the fielder tosses to the wicket-keeper.

7. Timed-Out:

If a new batsman takes much more than 3 minutes to cross the boundary for coming to the crease in ODI cricket and in T20s it’s just 120 seconds then the batsman is out.

8. Leg before Wicket (LBW)

If the ball hits any part of the batsman and in umpire’s reasoning if the point of impact is within line with the batsman’s stumps and the bowler’s stumps whilst the batsman is playing the ball, in that case the batsman is out. The batsman can even be given out LBW if the ball hits him outside the off stump, if the ball would have hit the stumps and the batsman didn’t try out a stroke.

9. Handled the ball:

If the batsman touches the ball with his hand, not in touch with the bat, without the consent of the fielder, the batsman is out if the fielding team makes an appeal.

10. Run-Out

If the fielder takes advantage of the ball to dislodge the bails from the either side of the stumps when the batsmen are running from one end to another end, then the batsmen is out.

11. Retired:

A batsman gets out if he retires without the umpire’s approval and also doesn’t have the approval of the opposition skipper to continue his innings.
