Question
Respected Sir ,

In the following scenarios, how many runs will be scored and what will be the output from such a delivery

1) A wide ball goes over the boundary line
2) A NO ball deflected by striker's pad hits the fielding side helmet placed on the ground
3) A NO ball delivered by bowler strikes the the helmet wear by very closing very fielder near the pitch and breaks the strikers end wicket . At this time striker was standing out of his ground to receive delivery.
4) Same case as of above but ball strikes closing fielders shoulder rather than his helmet.
5) Striker after playing the delivery sets off for the run and immediately closing fielder deliberately brings him down

Thanks,
Mayur Wankhade

Answer
1) Wide=1 + Boundary=4 makes total=5
2a) If Leg Byes would have been allowed, then NoBall=1 + Helmet=5 makes total=6
2b) If Leg Byes would not have been allowed, then NoBall=1 and Dead Ball
3 & 4) Ball becomes Dead when hits fielder, so just No Ball=1
5) Law 42.5 is clear.  Umpire calls Dead ball, awards 5 Penalty runs, plus one for the run just started.  Batsmen can elect who faces next delivery.
