Part of the A, B, C listings here is incorrect. For the batsman to be out LBW the ball, if it pitches, must pitch in line with the wicket or outside off stump; must hit the batsman in line with the wicket (or outside the line of off stump if not making a genuine attempt to play the ball).

I am concerned that point C. made by Deepak suggests that if the delivery pitches outside off stump and a shot is attempted, he cannot be given out, but that is not true. If the delivery pitches outside off stump, and hits the batsman in line with the stumps, and would have continued on to hit the stumps, he can be given OUT.

I have coached Junior Club cricketers for 5 years in Australia. At 50 I still play grade cricket in Newcastle, Australia and keep wickets (struggle a bit now).
