It is illegal for the batters to attempt to steal a run during the bowler’s run-up. As soon as the batters cross, the umpire must call ‘dead ball’. The batters must return to their original ends. In addition, five penalty runs will be awarded to the fielding side. As dead ball is called the bowler cannot deliver the ball.
