In this video, you will learn how to execute a run out.
The most important thing to consider in a run out situation is how quickly the ball can be returned to the wicket.
The key steps are throwing to the wicket keeper or bowler, aiming for a direct hit and backing up an overthrow.
As soon as you've fielded the ball, make a quick decision on which end you wish to throw the ball.
The keeper or bowler typically wait behind the stumps, expecting to receive the ball at around shoulder level.
If there are more chances of creating a dismissal on the striker's end, throw the ball to the wicket keeper to initiate the run out.
If the batsman running towards the non-striker's end is further from his crease, throw the ball to the bowler.
If there is no time, close fielders may aim the ball directly at the stumps at the risk of missing the wicket and giving the batsmen time to take more runs.
When batsmen under pressure take runs from missed deliveries, a wicket keeper may attempt a direct hit if they are standing far from the stumps.
If they are closer to the stumps than the batsman, it may be safer to outrun the batsman and hit the stump holding the ball.
To prevent losing more runs from overthrows, it is important for fielders to back up the player receiving the ball and respond quickly to prevent the loss of more runs.
