What is a Dot Ball?

A dot ball refers to a delivery bowled by a bowler that does not result in any runs being scored by the batting team. In other words, if a ball is bowled and the batsman fails to hit it, or if he does hit it but the ball is fielded by a fielder before the batsmen can complete a run, it is considered a dot ball.
