We received an interesting picture from a game of tennis-ball cricket in which the middle-stump has fallen over, but the bails stayed put.

The fan asked if it was a genuine dismissal, so we looked up the laws.

29.1.1. The wicket is put down if a bail is completely removed from the top of the stumps, or a stump is struck out of the ground

Though the bails remain undisturbed, the batsman is OUT.

Tough luck to him!
