Hole out means the dismissal of a player when an outfield player catches the ball. For a better understanding of the situation, let’s imagine that there are several ways to get fired in cricket.
The most common ones are:
- Bowled – hitting the wicket by a bowler leads to the batsman being removed from the game (21.4% probability);
- Caught – a ball caught by a field player, after hitting the surface of the ground (probability 16.3%);
- leg before wicket (LBW) – touching the ball with any part of the body (usually the foot), leading to a change in the trajectory of the ball (probability 14.3%);
- run out – a situation in which the batsman does not touch the inside of the crease with the bat until the end of the run after the hit (probability 3.5%);
- stumped – if the batsman steps over the crease line without leaving any part of his body or bat behind it (2.0% probability).
