what all this means is:
If a batsman/woman hits the ball into the net, they score
the bonus runs (that is, runs in addition to the physical runs they
run.....if you see what I mean) relevant to the section of the
net (or "zone"), they hit. Simple really.
course, the ball must be hit by the bat and/or the hand/s holding the
bat at the moment of contact. The ball can hit a fielder (it often does)
or the non-striker (as long as the non-striker doesn't deliberately
make such contact) and then rebound into the net .... the bonus runs
ball hit by the batsman into his/her legs or body, then rebounding onto
the net, still scores the relevant bonus runs (as it has actually been
hit by the bat).
the ball hit the net after being thrown by a fielder, or if it was not
hit by the bat or the batsman/woman's hand/s holding the bat, the bonus
runs are not scored.
ball which hits a side net (Zone B or C) then goes on to hit the back
net (Zone D) scores 3 bonus runs (whether on the full or along the ground).
Only balls hit on the full directly to the back net
(Zone D) score 6 bonus runs. A ball may be hit to the back net, on the
full, and touch the non-striker and/or a fielder on the way. This is
still considered as "hit directly to the back net" because
it didn't touch any other net or the ground on the way. Therefore, 6
bonus runs still apply.
the above is covered in further detail in the Rules section.
