  • batsman
  • The number of runs scored are scored as leg byes - they are added to the team's total, but not to the number of runs scored by the batsman nor to the runs conceded by the bowler. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, if the batsman deliberately allows the ball to hit a hand which is not holding the bat no leg byes can be scored, and he may on appeal be given out obstructing the field. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leg byes may only be scored if the ball hits the batsman while the batsman was either: attempting to hit the ball with his bat, or attempting to evade being hit by the ball. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since a leg theory attack means the batsman is more likely to hit the ball on the leg side, additional fielders on that side of the field can be effective in preventing runs and taking catches. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, because it relies on lack of concentration or discipline by the batsman, it can be risky against patient and skilled players, especially batsmen who are strong on the leg side. (wikipedia.org)

  • bones

  • In 1930, England captain Douglas Jardine, together with Nottinghamshire's captain Arthur Carr and his bowlers Harold Larwood and Bill Voce, developed a variant of leg theory in which the bowlers bowled fast, short-pitched balls that would rise into the batsman's body, together with a heavily stacked ring of close fielders on the leg side.

(wikipedia.org)
  • Ghost Leg (Chinese: 畫鬼腳), known in Japan as Amidakuji (阿弥陀籤, "Amida lottery", so named because the paper was folded into a fan shape resembling Amida's halo) or in Korea as Sadaritagi (사다리타기, literally "ladder climbing"), is a method of lottery designed to create random pairings between two sets of any number of things, as long as the number of elements in each set is the same.
