The complexity above in baseball looks amusing.. I dont know much abt Baseball.. it might really be required. But in cricket, I dont think any set of clear guidelines exist.

There's no limit - a bowler can stop in his run-up as often as he likes, and a batsman can pull out of a delivery as often as he likes. In practice, the umpire will have a word if he feels the players are messing about, and it doesn't happen too often.
