no ball is not considered a legal ball
no ball is beneficial for batters
New Delhi. No-ball is considered a crime in the world of cricket. If the bowler starts throwing no balls or wide balls, then questions arise on his bowling. Even today there are many bowlers in world cricket who have not bowled a single no ball in their entire career, on the other hand there are many bowlers who have made embarrassing records through no balls. But the biggest question is what is this last no ball? And how many types are there? When does the umpire signal it? Today in this article we will talk about no ball and know how many runs the team batting on no ball gets.
In the language of cricket, a no ball is a ball which is not considered valid. If a bowler’s ball is declared a no ball, then the batting team gets an extra run. This run does not add to the batter’s account. On scoring a run on a no ball, the batsman gets a run and the bowler has to bowl an extra ball. Batter can only be runout on no ball. This clearly means that the batsman cannot be out in any other way on a no-ball ball except run out.

Batter gets free hit in ODI and T20
In ODI and T20 cricket, if the bowler bowls a no ball, then the next ball is a free hit. Batters can be out in 4 ways on a free hit. These include runout, handled the ball, obstructing the field or hit the ball. Apart from this, the batter cannot be out in other ways on free hit. According to the ICC rules, if the batter runs after being caught on the no ball, then it gets added to his account. Similarly, even if the ball hits the stump with the edge of the bat, the batsman can run and take the run. If the ball does not hit the bat and hits the stumps directly, then the batsman can run away, but it will be in the form of a leg bye.

When is the ball declared a no ball?
If the bowler’s leg goes ahead of the line while bowling, then that ball is considered a no ball. At present, if the bowler’s leg is on the line, then the umpire calls it a no ball. If the full tossed ball stays above the waist of the batsman, then it is called a no ball. When the umpire feels that the bowler is throwing a throw, he calls it a no ball. If the ball hits the ball twice before reaching the batter, even then it is a no ball. Even if the ball stops before reaching the batter, it is a no ball. If more than two fielders are present behind the square on the leg side (behind the stump line), the ball is still a no ball. The ball is declared no even if the bowler hits the stumps at the non-strike end while bowling.
How many types of no balls are there in cricket?
Before the 90s, extra runs were not given on no balls. Then if a batter used to take the ball across the boundary for 4 or 6 runs on no ball, then only 4 or 6 runs were available. At that time an extra run was not available. The rule of free hit came in the year 2015.
