How dismissal occurs in cricket?

Cricket has batsman dismissal which occurs when fielding side takes a wicket or a wicket is losing by batting side. After that, the batsman need to discontinue his/her batting and permanently leaves the field except in the case of runner. Batting by a team is occurring by pair of batsman and at a time one batsman only dismissed. Dismissal of a batsman occurs in different number of ways such as bowled, leg before wicket, caught, run out, retired and stumped.

If a bowlers delivers a ball which hits the stumps and bail is removed completely from the stumps top then the batsman who facing the ball delivery is out. The ball can struck directly the stumps or hits the stumps redirected off the body or bat of the batsman. However, before the ball hitting the stumps if it is touches by a fielder or touches by the umpire or touches by a wicket keeper then the batsman is not out.

Caught is the another dismissal which occurs when the ball hit by a batsman with his bat or with glove when it is in contact with bat and the ball caught by the fielder or bowler prior to the ball hits the ground. When the ball caught by the bowler or fielder when it strikes external protective equipment such as helmet or pads then the bowler is not out. Caught is of two types, one caught behind and the other is caught and bowled. Caught behind means, if the batsman hits the ball and it caught by wicket-keeper or by the slips. Caught and bowled means, if the batsman hits the ball and it is caught by bowler who bowls the ball.

Handled the ball is the type of dismissal when the ball is handling by the batsman without bat contact. In test cricket history seven batsmen are dismissed due to handled the ball and in One day cricket history Mohinder Amarnath and Daryll Cullian are the two batsmen are dismissed by handled the ball. Leg before wicket (LBW) is a dismissal when the ball hits batsman persons any time and with umpire judgement the ball stopped by the batsmen not to hit the stumps then the batsman is declaring out by umpire. Run out, is occurs when a batsman hit a ball and trying to take a run but the stumps are hit by the fielder side before the batsman reaches the crease. Stumped occurs when the striker moves more away from crease to face the ball, but the ball moves to the wicket keeper then the wicket keeper removes the bails from the stump with the ball. Stumping occurs mostly in slow bowling or less in medium bowling, since wicket keeper stands behind directly the stumps. The main difference among run out and stumped is, any one in fielder side can make the batsman dismiss when he trying to take run but stumped is doing by wicket keeper when the batsman goes far away from the crease to play the ball.
