Can you be stumped if the ball hit accidentally the bat or the batter before being caught by the wicket keeper?

1 Answer 1


Yes. Law 39 "Stumped" says:

39.1.1 The striker is out Stumped [...] if a ball which is delivered is not called No ball and he/she is out of his/her ground [...] and he/she has not attempted a run when his/her wicket is fairly put down by the wicket-keeper without the intervention of another fielder.

Note nothing which stops the batter being out if the ball hit them or their body.
