I had also asked Bob
Green for his views and he concluded that the Red ball was not a
misplaced ball but an outside agency:
Law 6 (c) Ball in Hand
(1) Any ball becomes a ball in hand and an outside agency:
(D) when it must be replaced in order to rectify an error or
correct an interference.
Playing of Yellow was therefore a wrong ball play and Red should
be placed on a baulk line.

I agree with Alix and Jim.
Which then directs you to 27.f.
Agree with Alix.
After Player A incorrectly played Red onto the court,
the Red ball should have been removed.
Leaving Red on the lawn at this point is incorrect
placement of a ball (and perhaps also Player A mis-leading
Player B to play Red from a baulk line.
I think nothing relieves player B of his obligation
to play red onto the lawn in the 4th turn rather than
striking yellow a second time so yellow to be returned
to corner 4 and player B plays red onto the lawn from
a baulk line ie the ball he should have played 4th
turn. Just roll back to last legal strokeÂ

A correctly plays Blue to East boundary
B correctly plays Yellow to Corner 4
A plays Red to West boundary and measures in
- Wrong ball called
A places Black on baulk-line in Corner 3 but Red
is left in place
B shoots Yellow at Red, misses and measures in
- Return Yellow to Corner 3
- Remove Red and place anywhere on baulk-lines
- Player A to continue
