Other than a run out, is there a way in cricket where a player is but the team gets a run? I'm asking this as I once saw "W+1" on a scoresheet and wondered how that was possible.
As you've noted, the most common way for this to occur is a run out while attempting a second (or later) run, but there are a number of other ways:
- A batsman being out stumped or hit wicket from a wide ball - see clause 16. For a recent example of a stumping from a wide, see India vs Bangladesh in the 2016 World T20:
9.3 Raina to Sabbir Rahman, 1 wide, OUT, oooh, Dhoni goes up for a stumping and he is very quick with those.
- A batsman being out handled the ball, hit the ball twice or obstructing the field from a no ball - see clause 24.
- A batsman being out hit the ball twice or obstructing the field after having completed a run. (Hit the ball twice is even more unlikely than most of these as it cannot happen after a fielder touches the ball, but I think it could happen in some very convoluted circumstances).
