4. Foul:

  • In case the player misses the coins and the striker ends up in the corners of the board it is termed as a foul and the turn is passed on to the opposition.
  • Similarly, if the coin is pocketed but the striker follows the coin in the pocket it is also termed as a foul and the turn is passed on to the opposition.
