What is a dead ball?

Dead Ball

A ball is dead when:
a) a boundary is scored
b) it lodges in a batsman's clothing or equipment
c) it lodges in a helmet of the fielding side
d) the umpire calls "over" or "time"
It usually means that it is time for a new delivery
to be bowled by the bowler and the batsman cannot
score any more runs from that delivery. He has to
face the next delivery and then score runs.
