Is This Shot A Foul?

Is This Shot A Foul?

I played the cue ball so that it bounced off a rail, it then hit my ball but my ball did not go in a pocket or hit a rail, and the cue ball did not subsequently hit a rail either.

Is this a foul?

Thanks for any clarification you can give.

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    Pretty sure it is.

    I think you'll find the language in the "general rules" not necessarily 8-ball.

    You can find it on this webpage near the top.

    Thanks, Zeke.

    I just checked those rules.

    It's clear that after the cue ball hits the object ball, one of them must hit a rail or the object ball must be pocketed, irrespective of whether the cue ball came off a rail before it hit the object ball.

    That's how I read it as well...
