Can anyone help me with some questions regarding scoring? These deal
primarily with scoring and attributing runs on wides and on no balls.
Here they are:
1. According to law 25, a penalty of one run for a wide shall be scored
if no runs are made otherwise... [and] all runs which are run as a result
from a wide ball which is not a no ball shall be scored wide balls.
a.) Exactly how can batsmen score additional runs on a wide? Is it the case
that a wide can never be followed by a bye on the same ball?
b.) If a wide ball is called, and then the leg umpire subsequently calls
a no ball, does the leg umpires call supercede the wide call? Is it the case
that a bye cannot follow a no ball call on the same ball? Can a leg bye
be called on a no ball resulting from overstepping?
c.) Are all wides and no balls attributed to the bowlers runs total or
only as extras?
2. On some cards, each batsman is attributed to have batted so many
overs. Is this quantity the total number of balls bowled (expressed as
overs) while the batsman was at the crease?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
