7 As the bowler is running in he notices the strikers is batting well outside his crease.  Before entering his delivery stride the bowler throws the ball at the strikers end wicket.  The batsman pulls away without attempting to play the ball, which hits the wicket, removing the bails with the striker still well out of his ground.  On appeal, what should happen? (2 marks)  
  (Law 38.1) The Striker is Out - Run Out
The bowlers end umpire should signal No-Ball. The delivery is not one for the over.

9 Before the game, during your boundary inspection you note that there are several trees that are overhanging the boundary.  At the toss you discuss this with the captains and agree that any ball contacting those trees will be a 6.  During the match a fielder retrieves the ball just inside the boundary, but his throw into the middle contacts one of the branches of the tree.  In the confusion that follows the fielder retrieves and throws the ball and the keeper removes the bails with the striker out of his ground.  On appeal, what do you do and why? (4 marks)  
 

(Law 19.4.1, 42.17) The bowlers end umpire should signal boundary 4.
As this is overthrows you need to confirm the scorer how many runs have been completed (including the current run if they have crossed) at the instant of the throw.
These are added to the boundary 4.
The ball has already contacted the ground, so it cannot be a 6.
Once the boundary has been scored the ball is dead so the batsman cannot be run out.
The batsmen continue to the end they are closest to.
(You probably should have been more careful with your wording at the toss. Rather than saying hitting the tree is
6, you should have said that it was a boundary [4 or 6])
As an alternative, 1 point for giving a boundary 6 with the explanation you believe a local rule was agreed to stating that the boundary of that tree was always worth 6. *This replaces points 1 and 4 above (also worth 1 point). .
