What Is The Definition Of Beamer In Cricket?
1. A delivery which does not bounce off the pitch (typically by accident) and reaches the batsman at around head height. Beamers are very dangerous and are an illegal delivery. The penalty for bowling a beamer is having a no ball called, and if a bowler bowls more than two in one inning, he or she can be barred from bowling for the remainder of that inning.
