38.1 Out Run out
Either batsman is out Run out, except as in 38.2, if, at any time while the ball is in play, he/she is out of his/her ground and his/her wicket is fairly put down by the action of a fielder even though No ball has been called, except in the circumstances of 18.104.22.168, and whether or not a run is being attempted.
38.2 Batsman not out Run out
38.2.1 A batsman is not out Run out in the circumstances of 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199.
188.8.131.52 He/She has been within his/her ground and has subsequently left it to avoid injury, when the wicket is put down.
Note also the provisions of Law 30.1.2 (When out of his/her ground).
184.108.40.206 The ball, delivered by the bowler, has not made contact with a fielder before the wicket is put down.
38.2.2 The striker is not out Run out in any of the circumstances in 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
22.214.171.124 He/She is out Stumped. See Laws 25.6.5 (Dismissal and conduct of a batsman and his/her runner) and 39.1.2 (Out Stumped).
126.96.36.199 No ball has been called
and he/she is out of his/her ground not attempting a run
and the wicket is fairly put down by the wicket-keeper without the intervention of another fielder.
However, if the striker has a runner and the runner is out of his/her ground, then only 38.1 applies.
38.3 Which batsman is out
The batsman out in the circumstances of 38.1 is the one whose ground is at the end where the wicket is put down. See Laws 25.6 (Dismissal and conduct of a batsman and his/her runner) and 30.2 (Which is a batsman’s ground).
38.4 Runs scored
If either batsman is dismissed Run out, the run in progress when the wicket is put down shall not be scored, but any runs completed by the batsmen shall stand, together with any runs for penalties awarded to either side. See Laws 18.6 (Runs awarded for penalties) and 18.8 (Runs scored when a batsman is dismissed).
If, however, a striker who has a runner is himself/herself dismissed Run out and runs are completed by the runner and the other batsman before the wicket is put down,
- all runs to the batting side from that delivery shall be disallowed.
- the one run penalty for No ball shall stand and 5 run penalties shall be allowed.
- the umpire shall return the non-striker to his/her original end.
See Law 25.6 (Dismissal and conduct of a batsman and his/her runner).
