Extras - Extra (cricket) - Netflix

In the sport of cricket, an extra (sometimes called a sundry) is a run scored by a means other than a batsman hitting the ball. Other than runs scored off the bat from a no-ball, a batsman is not given credit for extras and the extras are tallied separately on the scorecard and count only towards the team's score. A game with many extras is often considered as untidy bowling; conversely, a game having few extras is seen as tidy bowling.

Extras - Leg-bye - Netflix

If the ball hits the batsman's body, then provided the batsman is not out leg before wicket (lbw) and the batsman either tried to avoid being hit or tried to hit the ball with the bat, the batsmen may run. In this case, regardless of the part of anatomy touched by the ball, the runs scored are known as leg-byes. If (with the same provisos) the ball reaches the boundary, whether or not the batsmen ran, then four leg-byes are awarded. Leg-byes can be scored from no-balls or legitimate deliveries and are counted only towards the team's score, not that of the batsman. Unlike no-balls and wides, byes and leg-byes are not scored against the bowler.
