    Yes -- by watching the Stephen Fry videos prepared by MCC. Which even he admits are as clear as mud. From what I gather "handled ball" isn't a rule any more having been subsumed by a broader obstruction rule.

    Neither answered the question about collisions between players on each side. As best I recall, the batsman simply blind sided a fielder trying to pick up a grounder, and somehow it was the fielder's fault, leaving open the issue of how that got fixed.

    Those two and this example are what I grouped into a play called: obstructing the field.

    I still appreciated hit ball twice though.

    Who determined that it was the fielder's fault in the first place?

    Ok. I found the original video and I remembered it wrong. The batsman was given out for obstructing, though the commentator thought it was a call that was wrong. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87m2d6cV4F0

    However, I did recall correctly that the fielding team ended up apologizing. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...andcricketteam

    On a pitch with small boundaries behind the bowlers arm and behind the keeper, what would be signalled if a bouncer was bowled and the ball went over the boundary without bouncing before the rope. Would it be 4 or 6 byes? Assuming it didnt go past the batsman over head height.

    What if it flies over the boundary off the pad?

    Look at Ben Stokes in the 2015 Lords ODI for a blatant example of handling the ball. He was sent on his way and rightly so.

    Actually it would be just 4 runs. To score a six the ball must come off the bat. No such thing as 6 byes, legbyes or sides.

    Six wides might be vaugely possible if you are Jeff Thomson type pace on a 70s or 80s WACA deck, but even then I have my doubts

    Wouldn't be possible because even if it happens it would just be scored as wide+4 not wide+6
