Cricket/Cricket question


I understand now runner rule is stopped. Still have a question. Striker is with runner and hit a single both runner and non Striker run for a single. Non sticker is short of the ground and keeper dislodged bail. Meanwhile at the batting crease sticker is out of crease. In this scenario who will be out, injured sticker or the non striker? Final scene is non sticker reached the crease although he is out but sticker is not inside crease. Need to who is out, please answer.

Runners are still part of most cricket.

If wicket is put down at keeper's end, the first question to consider is "Where is Striker?".  If he is out of ground, then Striker is Run Out irrespective of other positions.

In any other situation, ignore the Striker and just consider the other two as normal batsmen.
