Bowling Rules:

- Each bowler is allowed to bowl only a maximum of 4 overs per innings.

- Should a bowler deliver a no ball by overstepping the popping crease, it costs 1 run and his next delivery is designated a "free-hit", from which the batsman can only be dismissed by a Run out or stumping.

*The bowler may not deliver the ball underarm. If a bowler bowls a ball underarm the umpire shall call and signal No ball, and the ball is to be re-bowled over arm.

*Free Hit after a foot-fault No ball -The delivery following a No ball called for a foot fault shall be a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. If the delivery for the free hit is not a legitimate
delivery (any kind of No ball or a Wide ball), then the next delivery will become a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it. For any free hit, the striker can be dismissed only under the
circumstances that apply for a No ball, even if the delivery for the free hit is called Wide ball.
Field changes are not permitted for free hit deliveries unless there is a change of striker.

- If the player is absent from the field for longer than 10 minutes the player shall not be permitted to bowl in that innings after his return until he has been on the field for at least that length of playing time for which he was absent.

- A bowler shall be limited to one fast short pitched delivery per over. If the bowler delivers any other short pitch ball in that over, this will be declared as No ball.

- Any delivery which passes or would have passed on the full above waist height of the striker standing upright at the popping crease shall be a No ball (this rule doesn?t apply for spinners).

- The bowler is permitted, up to the completion of his delivery stride, to attempt to run out the non-striker. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one of the over. If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the not-striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as
