Fantasy Cricket – Umpiring Hand Signals

Cricket is considered as one of the most complicated sports. This is not because of how the cricket fantasy game is played, but because of the kind of rules and laws it comprises of. Take a dismissal through Catch for example.

A catch involves a contact between bat and the ball before a fielder catches it. Now the contact may be the slightest one, but the value is the same – an entire wicket for a team and fantasy cricket league players.

Thus, the responsibility of making sure that these laws are followed is of the Umpire. They are the ones who make sure that online fantasy cricket is always remains a gentlemen’s game. Umpires receive a lot of respect from the cricketers, unlike football where referees are not treated ethically.

Here is a list of cricket umpire signals used during matches. Read about them and join daily fantasy cricket at 11wickets App.

Right arm outstretched

No-ball! This signal indicates that the bowler’s foot has landed over the front line of the bowling crease and the delivery is deemed a no-ball.

Both arms outstretched

Wide! This signal shows that the ball was out of reach of the batsman or woman and has been adjudged a wide. One run goes onto the batting team’s extras score, and the ball must be re-bowled.

Right leg raised and clasped by the right hand

Leg byes! This sign indicates that the ball hit the pads of the batsman or woman, not the bat, and that the runs completed are adjudged to be leg byes. These runs are not credited to the individual player’s score but to the team’s, as extras.

Right arm raised skywards

Byes! This shows that the ball has been missed by both the batsman or woman and the wicket-keeper. Any runs scored are deemed to be byes. Byes, like leg byes, are counted as extras.

Right hand and arm swept across the body

Four runs! This signal signifies that the ball has been hit all the way to the boundary. The ball has bounced on its way to the boundary and four runs have been scored.

Both arms held above the head and index fingers outstretched

Six runs! The ball has been hit over the boundary, without the ball bouncing. Six runs are awarded for this fab feat.

Index finger raised towards the batsman

Out! The umpire has given the batsman or woman out and they have to leave the crease and take the long, lonely walk back to the pavilion.

Right arm held at out horizontally then flexed back to touch the shoulder

Short run! One of the batsmen or women has failed to touch their bat down beyond the front line of the bowling crease when going for a run. This is deemed a short run and the scorer is being told to take that run off the score.

Fantasy Cricket – Call of the Third Umpire in Cricket

Have you ever wondered how the third umpire sees a cricket match? Or have you wondered how the decision of a third umpire will affect your fantasy cricket game at 11wickets App?

A few decisions just can’t be taken by umpires on the field during an online fantasy cricket match. That is where a third umpire becomes an advantage. He is the overlord. Soon after taking his time, with the press of a button, he can break a million hearts or offer booming hope.

We all believe how things head on down at the cricket field and on televisions sets.

  1. The first thing is that the fielding team makes an appeal.
  2. The on field umpire draws a box in the air to attract the third umpire.
  3. And then the decision goes upstairs to the third umpire.

Millions of fantasy cricket fans at the stadium and gluing to the television set hold their breath, cross their fingers and after what precisely may seem like an eternity, the light on the board glows. Depending on the colour, we praise or curse the 3rd umpire.

Well, that is what we as the cricket fan see and understand this side of the story. But how is it for the man behind the button? How exactly does he see the game? How exactly does he try to make his decisions?

For, the technology was announced in November, 1992 during a Test match between India & South Africa.

Strangely enough, Sachin Tendulkar was the first batsman to be given out applying television replay. And in those days, green colour light signal meant out!

Lack of technology

But clearly, the technology was not as ‘advanced’ back in the day.

Little by little, it evolved, and from merely determining run outs, the 3rd umpire had to even evaluate if the ball had cleared the ropes when a fielder dove in for saving a boundary. Or whether the ball cleared for a six or remained in the field.

These people were also given the duty to determine if a catch was cleanly taken.

In addition to these decisions, 3rd umpires have to take decisions for no balls as well. The truth is, that is something they need to check each and every time, unless there is a run out decision to be taken.

And right after the 3rd umpire got more support via the Hotspot and Snickometer. Although he was burdened with deciding caught-behind conundrums.

The roll-out of Hawkeye places the responsibility of Leg Before Wicket decisions on 3rd umpire as well. Not that the technology was not beneficial.

After that Decision Review System (DRS) took place and teams could in fact overturn decisions. Once again, the power went into the hands of the 3rd Umpire.

And simply from a single small screen in 1992, the 3rd umpire’s small little room now looks a little like a big hall with numerous monitors where every angle of the field is shown by the cameras installed for the scrutiny of the 3rd umpires.
