Cricket Quiz Puzzle

This puzzle does require a bit of thought, and does at first sight seem impossible, but it can be resolved with a bit of ingenuity.

A cricket team needs seven runs to win the game, with only three balls of the game remaining. Both batsmen are on 94.

The fielding side does not concede any extras or overthrows, and yet the batting side wins the match, and both batsmen reach their 100s and are not out.
