  • @PhilipKendall; that's all i could find - i think i have seen 2 outs in one ball somewhere before, but i can't find it.

No. As soon as a batsman is out, the ball is dead so there is no way to get two run outs in one ball. The only exception is to get a "regular" run out on a ball, and then to run out the non-striker backing up ("Mankading") before the next ball is delivered.

  • I see the video, but I'm not sure what point you're trying to make - the comments on the video (if you ignore the usual YouTube spam) agree precisely with my answer.
