39.1 Out Stumped
39.1.1 The striker is out Stumped, except as in 39.3, if
a ball which is delivered is not called No ball
and he/she is out of his/her ground, other than as in 39.3.1
and he/she has not attempted a run when his/her wicket is fairly put down by the wicket-keeper without the intervention of another fielder. Note, however Laws 25.6.2 and 25.6.5 (Dismissal and conduct of a batter and his/her runner) and 27.3 (Position of wicket-keeper).
39.1.2 The striker is out Stumped if all the conditions of 39.1.1 are satisfied, even though a decision of Run out would be justified.
39.2 Ball rebounding from wicket-keeper’s person
If the wicket is put down by the ball, it shall be regarded as having been put down by the wicket-keeper if the ball:
rebounds on to the stumps from any part of the wicket-keeper’s person or equipment
or has been kicked or thrown on to the stumps by the wicket-keeper.
39.3 Not out Stumped
39.3.1 The striker will not be out Stumped if, after having received the delivery, he/she has left his/her ground in order to avoid injury.
39.3.2 If the striker is not out Stumped he/she may, except in the circumstances of Law 126.96.36.199 (Batsman not out Run out), be out Run out if the conditions of Law 38.1 (Out Run out) apply.
39.4 Runs scored
When a striker is dismissed Stumped from a Wide ball, the one-run penalty shall stand. Note Laws 12.9 (Conclusion of match), 16.6 (Winning hit or extras) and 22.2 (Call and signal of Wide ball) mean that if the penalty for a Wide concludes the match, then a stumping is not possible, but the one-run penalty for the Wide remains.
