How One Run Hit In Cricket Is Scored

Scores are expressed as several ‘runs.’ Hitting the ball and then running is the most elementary way of scoring and is termed as one hit runs in Cricket.


The batting team can score as many runs they can manage off a single hit, or ‘one-run hit,’ granted that the batsmen aren’t ‘run out’ by the balling side. Until the fielding team recovers the ball, the batsmen have the opportunity to run more than once. Every completed run increases the score of the team and the batsman.


  • The striker does not have to score one-run hit; neither does it affect them if they miss the ball or if their body is struck by it. But if they get a good hit that won’t make a boundary and thinks they can score a run, they run towards the opposite wicket, and their partner runs toward them, counting a single one-run hit in cricket.

  • If a batsman strikes the ball when it is bowled to him, he must attempt to score one-run hits. He successfully scores a run when both the batsmen run, past each other, to the opposite wickets. The fielding side attempts to prevent runs from being scored by threatening to run out (‘put out’) one of the batsmen. If the bat hits the ball, all runs scored by the batting side are accredited to the striker, except for penalty runs and extras.

  • If the batsmen are running and still away from the wickets in an attempt to score one-run hit, and a fielder recovers the ball and hits a wicket with it, displacing either bail, while no batsman is behind that wicket’s popping crease, then the nearest batsman is run out.

  • The batsmen usually carry their bats as they run and attempt another run after touching the ground beyond the crease with an outstretched bat, indicating they have run the entire length of the pitch. They stay at the wicket where they end the run. If the batsmen have made runs in an odd number, they have ended at the opposite ends. For the next ball their striker/non-striker roles are exchanged unless the ball is the last one of an over.

  • If a batsman attempts a one-run hit in cricket and successfully reaches the other end of the pitch, they have scored one run completely. Batsmen can endeavor for more than one run per ball but must cover the entire length of the pitch before making a run for the second time, or else they have run a ‘short run,’ or which results in a penalty. Striker scores a run when both the batsmen run to the opposite wicket, now appearing at the opposite sides of the pitch. The fielding team tries to stop the batsman from scoring runs by running out one of the two batsmen.

  • In essence, a run is awarded when a batsman hits the ball and then runs to the other end of the pitch, getting past the crease. The non-striking batsman has to run to the opposite end simultaneously. The batsman can score one-run hit in cricket as many times as they like, but they can get out if the wickets closest to them are hit and the bails dislodged by a fielder before the batsman reaches the crease.
