Cricket/Hit Wicket


If a batsman fell down on the stamps at the non-striker end while taking a run will he be given hit out?

Dear Saad,
         very good question asked by you
         these type of situations are very common these days in international cricket,actually if the batsmen fall's on the wicket while running or want to stop the ball from hitting the wicket's or he kick's the wicket intentionally then he is given out,if he stumbles and fall on the wicket un-intentionally or if someone pushes him onto the wicket then he is not out.

         come back again if you have more doubts.
