    How you get run out in the game of the cricket?

    How you get run out in the game of the cricket?

    It depends on the side you are running to. If you are more than half way through the side at which the bails are being taken off or stumps being hit by the ball then you get out.

    If you have gone past your partner and heading towards the side where the stumps are being taken off or dislodged then you are out.

    If the ball hits the stumps after being thrown by any fielder to stop batsman from taking runs and batsman remains in the crease and bails get dislodged and batsmen start running for taking runs than the fielder needs to take off those stumps from ground with their hands holding the ball to get the batsman out.

    Please check my sentences.

    Re: How you get run out in the game of the cricket?

    Your version is too wordy. This is how it's explained in 'The Laws of Cricket':

    Either Batsman shall be out Run Out if in running or at any time while the ball is in play he is out of his ground and his wicket is put down by the opposite side.

    Re: How you get run out in the game of the cricket?

    Okay nothing should be used apart from these words. If I have to explain cricket rules to an American person or a person who doesn't know what "run out" is then I should be repeating the same sentence word by word?

    Why don't you try to be brief? If the rules of cricket can explain something in far fewer words, why not go with their version?

    I do not have problem I do thank them for helping me but if you corrected my sentences I would be able to understand more clearly. If I went with that only that would be just like learning something without understanding it. I won't be able to come up with new sentences on my own. I don't know how effectively did I explain what I wanted to and the words that I used are correct or can be used here or not.

    Re: How you get run out in the game of the cricket?

    Explaining the rules of cricket to someone who is not familiar with the game is hard enough for a native speaker at the best of times. I suggest you concentrate your efforts elsewhere.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If you're using far more words than anyone else, then there is an issue, regardless of whether they're right or wrong.
