Explain bye or leg bye?

In the sport of cricket, a bye is a run scored by the batting team when the ball has not been hit by the batsman and the ball has not hit the batsman's body.

Usually, if the ball passes the batsman without being deflected, the wicket-keeper will catch it. This normally prevents the scoring of runs because the batsmen will be unable to complete a run before being stumped or run out by the wicket-keeper. However, if the wicket-keeper fumbles or misses the ball, the batsmen may be able to score runs safely. These runs are scored as byes: they are added to the team's total, but not to the numbers of runs scored by either batsman.


In the sport of cricket, a leg bye is a run scored by the batting team when the batsman has not hit the ball with his bat, but the ball has hit the batsman's body or protective gear.

When a run scored by a batsman where the ball isn't touched or being deflected by the bat or any of the body part of the batsman is known as BYES. Mostly the wicket keeper will stop the ball, to throw it to the stumps, getting a wicket in run-out or stumping in case of spin bowlers. If the wicket keeper fails to do so, the run (s) scored by the batsman is said to be byes. It is not added to the batsman's run, but to the team.
