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.
