Law Changes for 2014

There have been a few law changes introduced towards the end of last year.  Just to whet your appetite, here are a couple of questions to test your knowledge.

  • The striker hits a ball, which is not a No ball, and it lobs in the air and it seems it might land on his own stumps.  The wicket-keeper was standing next to the stumps but, before he could take what would have been a simple catch, the striker knocks the ball away with a hand not holding the bat.  There is an appeal.  Should the striker be out and, if so, how.
  • A batsman with a runner is on strike.  The ball is not a No ball.  The striker moves out of his ground to play at the ball but he misses it.  He just manages to get back into his ground before the wicket-keeper puts the wicket down.  However, when the wicket is put down, the striker’s runner is out of his ground at square leg.  There is an appeal.  What is your decision and why?  If he is out, state the method of dismissal.
