Suppose that a fielder is running to catch the ball or field the ball and is running towards the boundary.
Eventually or willfully the fielder crosses the boundary rope before he is going to touch the ball in any case.
Then he jumps from outside the boundary rope and fields/catches the ball and sends it back to the other fielder while in the air.
Will the runs be given for this case? Because when the ball reached the boundary, the fielder was not in the field as he had crossed the rope.
