In all levels of cricket, it's a courtesy to the scorers and the media (if any) to specify a batting order and a wicket-keeper before the match, but it is not binding during the match. (The designation of the captain, however, is binding.) The particular example is from the World Cup, where teams operate with a predefined squad of 15. So the preprinted ...

Hi as an umpire its got to be no 1, deliberately padding the ball. You would allow play to continue and then as soon as the ball becomes dead or the batsmen have completed a single run call and signal dead ball disallowing any runs. If he was doing so to avoid injury he would be allowed the runs. Law 26 covers the situations around leg byes. Law 34 ...

This is not out. The law is very clear - see https://www.lords.org/mcc/laws-of-cricket/laws/law-35-hit-wicket/ - section 2 has clause 3, which says it is not out when "it occurs when he is trying to avoid being run out or stumped."

The Law on no-ball is available here. Section 14 says "Any runs completed by the batsmen or any boundary allowance shall be credited to the striker if the ball has been struck by the bat; otherwise they shall also be scored as No ball extras." Therefore, they should have been awarded the completed runs. They can be run out, according to the run out law ...

Maiden Over is the one in which the bowler bowls only 6 deliveries. which will count out the wides and no-balls ("bowling extras")being bowled, causing the bowler to bowl an extra delivery So a maiden over can have extras (byes and leg byes- "fielding extras")

It depends on the level of cricket you want to play, and on the regulations of the individual organising committees who administer the level you wish to play at. In general, there's usually no issue in playing at a social level, and as you rise through the ranks more restrictions are in place. To play international cricket for another country in general ...

Unfortunately there is no such tool to calculate failures not only in the case of fielders but also in the case of bowlers and batsman But we can get stats of team failures like lowest total made by the team,highest margin of loss,etc. But I believe all this faults will be identified and noted by team coach or some other officials responsible ...

It's probably worth starting by noting that your understanding of the regulations is incorrect: bowlers are allowed two fast short-pitched deliveries per over in a One Day International. Quoting from the current regulations, section 42.4.1: Law 42.6 (a) shall be replaced by the following: a) A bowler shall be limited to two fast short-pitched ...

No. See Law 24.16: When No ball has been called, neither batsman shall be out under any of the Laws except 33 (Handled the ball), 34 (Hit the ball twice), 37 (Obstructing the field) or 38 (Run out). At least under the standard Laws of Cricket (specifically, Law 42.6 and 42.7), it's a No ball as soon as it passes the batsmen, so it doesn't matter that ...

I've never seen an instance of dropped catches or missed stumpings being recorded in official statistics. They may be written into scorebooks as "incidents" or further annotations, but I don't believe they're recorded specifically. Looking at Cricinfo's Statsguru Test Bowling I don't see an ability to search by those items, which would lead me to believe ...

From Wikipedia: A fielding team may use the system to dispute a "not out" call ... and At their discretion, field umpires may request the Third Umpire ... to determine run outs ... These in combination would seem to suggest that the fielders can appeal the 'not-out' decision of the second batsman. The field umpires would then defer to the video ...
