Hi Sir,

If a ball delivered the bowler above the shoulder height and it was fulltoss and batsman go down and bowl hit the stump.

So the batsman consider out or not out

Kindly advise

Dear Ali,
        but specking practically a ball travelling and went to the batsmen above shoulder height(i mean it alerdy reched the batsmen of his shou then the ball wouldn't hit the stumps  even if the batsmen duck' is a very very rare incident which never happened in the history of cricket but on your case it only happen's when an external force is applied.
