The Stumps

3 vertical posts in the ground that support the bails. There is one set at either end of the wicket.

Two bails sit atop the stumps. They are used to determine if a wicket is broken and therefore to decide if a batsman has been bowled, stumped, run out or hit his wicket.

Caught

The batsman hits the ball into the air and is caught by a fielder before it hits the ground.

Hit Wicket

The batsman hits their own stumps and dislodges the bails.

Leg before wicket (LBW)

The bowler bowls a ball that would have hit the stumps and dislodged the bails had the batsman’s pads not been in the way.

Run Out

The batsman fails to make it back behind the crease before the opposing team has dislodged the bails with the cricket ball, either thrown or held in the hand.

Stumped

The batsman steps out of their crease to strike the ball, misses, and before they can step back the wicket keeper dislodges the bails with the cricket ball in hand.

Four Runs

When the ball bounces before crossing the boundary.

Six Runs

When a ball crosses the boundary without bouncing.

The Ashes

One over consists of six balls bowled by a bowler from one end of the pitch to the batsman at the other end.
