What is Run Out?

Run Out

This occurs when a batsman is found short of his ground while he is running for a run and the fielder has broken down the wicket. Nowadays, there are third umpires placed to give an accurate decision if there is any element of doubt in the minds of the umpires on the field. The bowler is not credited with the wicket as he has no role to play in taking the wicket.
