    So, if the ball off the pitched and landed over the ropes behind the keeper, it's not a six wides?

    Dead ball?

    Dead ball?
    4 byes/wide+4 depending on where it crossed the batsman

    This reminds me - if the batsmen hit the ball into the outfield, and run 5 before it crosses the boundary, they'll be credited with 5 runs not 4.

    Seems like common sense, but it's actually explicitly stated in the laws, which is nice to see. Also the over-throw law kicks in if a fielder chucks it over the rope trying to keep the batsmen to less runs (or keep a certain batsman on strike)

    Nah what you do is dive and let your momentum carry you to the boundary. Or "accidentally" touch the line with your foot.

    If starc or someone similarly quick happened to be bowling on some of the pitches I've played on they could do it easily

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87m2d6cV4F0 indicates a team is not required to appeal for an out. If so, that raises this hypothetical: Batsman hits fly that is caught by the bowler who notices the partner is out of his ground and then runs him out. Does the fielding side have the option to appeal only the run out?

    Is there a difference in this case as between what the written rules allow and the unwritten spirit of the game rules?

    The catch will take precedence since it happened first. If it was later discovered to be a no ball then the run out would apply if the ball hadn't been declared dead before it.

    Understand. But is it generally correct that the fielding side has to appeal for an out before it is given?

    Technically, but in practice a celebration is usually taken as an appeal. For obvious outs (bowled, most caughts) the batsman will walk and no appeal is necessary.

    Hey! Don't fault my usage. Encyclopedia Britannica refers to cricket shots in the air as being fly balls. https://www.britannica.com/sports/cricket-sport

    A ball hit to or beyond the boundary scores four points if it hits the ground and then reaches the boundary, six points if it reaches the boundary from the air (a fly ball).
    OK, it refers to runs as points too, but still, it is Encyclopedia Britannica.

    Forgive if I am mistaken, but wasn't there a time when fielding teams felt it was dishonorable to appeal for decisions that they knew for certain would be incorrect, even if it was to their advantage? Perhaps a fielder knew he trapped a ball or that it touched the rope and that the umpire had not seen it. If so, has that changed with video coverage and DRS?
