In a game of cricket, it is not unusual for an experienced, high quality batter to be on strike, opposite a poor, tail-end player at the non-strike end. The player on-strike will usually try to score a single (or three runs) near the end of the over in order to be on-strike for the next over. This is done to prevent an inexperienced batter facing the bowler (and possibly getting out) and to provide more opportunities for the better player to score.
Supposing that the on-strike player hits the ball and one run is taken, then for some reason (an over-throw or a fielder fails to stop the ball) the ball goes to the boundary; the batting side is given four (or six) runs but can't rotate the strike when swapping ends may be of more value to them.
Is it possible for the batting side to decline the four/six runs in favour of the single run, and for the batters to change ends, with the experienced player ready to face the bowler at the start of the new over?
I've had a look The Laws of Cricket but can't find anything that covers this.
