Is a batsman out when the ball naturally turned back to his stumps , but ball first landed out of his crease?
This happened to us when we played cricket last week , the bowler was a spinner , batsman hit the ball and it landed almost at the middle of pitch, then spinned(rotated) back and hit the stumps.
I was on the fielding side and we appealed for out! but it was denied , and explanation was :
A batsman can not be given out as the ball first landed out of his crease.
Is there any rules like this ?
We were playing among friends(No official umpire).
