What is the full form of LBW?

In the sport of cricket, The full form of LBW is “Leg Before Wicket“. LBW is one of the ways in which a batsman can be dismissed. After an appeal from the field side, the umpire may rule a batter out by LBW if the ball would have struck the wicket, but was instead intercepted by any part of the batter’s body (except the hand holding the bat). In other words, it means that the batter couldn’t defend the ball without the help of his leg. The ball would definitely hit the stumps in the absence of the batter’s leg, So it is considered as an out in cricket. The umpire’s decision will depend on a number of criteria, mentioned in Law 36 in the Laws of Cricket, written by the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club). When batsmen began using their pads to prevent the ball from hitting their wicket, Leg before wicket (LBW) first appeared in cricket laws in 1774. Over the course of several years, improvements were made to the law to clarify where the ball should pitch and to remove the element of interpreting the batsman’s intentions.
