the ball is in play
(i) he is out of his ground
and (ii) his wicket is fairly put down by the opposing side.
(b) (a) above shall apply even though No ball has been called
and whether or not a run is being attempted, except in the
circumstances of Law 39.3(b) (Not out Stumped).

before the wicket is put down.
(c) the ball, having been played by the striker, or having
come off his person, directly strikes a helmet worn by a fielder

above if a wicket is subsequently put down.
(d) he is out Stumped. See Law 39.1(b) (Out Stumped).
