Of the method of being out in which the striker hits the ball and a fielder catches it.
imp. & p. p. of Catch
Caught is a method of dismissing a batsman in the sport of cricket. Being caught out is the most common method of dismissal at higher levels of competition. This method of dismissal is covered by Law 32 of the Laws of cricket which reads: A batsman is out caught if a fielder catches the ball fully within the field of play without it bouncing once the ball has touched the striker's bat or glove holding the bat. If a batsman could be given out caught or by any other method except bowled, 'caught' takes precedence. This means that the batsman cannot be out caught if: ⁕The ball is called a no ball or dead ball. ⁕The batsman does not hit the ball with his bat or the gloved hand holding the bat. ⁕The ball, having been hit, makes contact with the field before a fielder catches the ball. ⁕The ball does not remain under the control of the fielder. ⁕The ball is hit and lands beyond the boundary;. ⁕A fielder taking the catch makes contact with the boundary rope or the area outside the boundary. ⁕The ball hits a close in fielder on the helmet, and rebounds in the air for a catch. If a batsman is out caught, any runs scored off that delivery are voided. If the catch is taken by the wicket-keeper, then informally it is known as a "caught behind". A catch by the bowler is known as a "caught and bowled". This has nothing to do with the dismissal bowled but is rather a shorthand for saying the catcher and bowler are the same player.
