No Ball

MCC rules state that a ball may be called a no-ball if it bounces more that twice before reaching the batsman/popping crease. This means if it bounces twice it is a legal delivery.

  • If the ball bounces twice before reaching the batter, it is legal ball.
  • If it bounces more than twice, including a roll, it is a no-ball.

What will be the result of this?
