Dead ball
Around the Academy:

The dead ball is called when someone is injured and either the players or the umpire require medical attention.

Umpires would make the same signal if a batsman steps away from his crease when he is not ready to receive the delivery.

That signal is the crossing of the wrists below the knee and the delivery should recommence without the original one counting.
