Cricket/Caught question


If the striker hits the ball and hits the stumps in full and deflects to a nearby fielder would that be considered as a catch?

Hello Saju,
         very nice of you asking good questions.first of all if the ball hits the stumps legally and then if the bails get dislodged then it's out,if the bails are in place without getting dislodged even if it is hit by the ball then it's not out if it is caught by the player of the fielding team after hitting the wicket then it can be declared out.
