During the third 2019 Ashes test, a bowled ball (Lyon) passed the batsman (Stokes) without being struck. The ball then hit the wicketkeeper’s (Paine) pad and rolled back more or less in front of the batsman.

The ball was treated as dead if I recall. How do the laws cover this? Could the ball have been played by the batsman?
