Telstra dome doesn't host international or even first class cricket now. why? some corporate trouble and also that Cricket Australia doesn't want to take games away from historic MCG.

But, when Telstra dome did host matches, the rule was if the ball hits the roof, wherever the ball lands it'll remain in play. This means if the ball hits the roof and comes crashing straight down and fielder catches it, batsman will be out. In case it deflects and lands among the crowd, it'll be a six.
