Dear Sir,
in a T-20 game the fielding team start the match with 9 players and remaining 2 players arrived on 18th over.
Question:

  1. Can they take part of the game at or team should continue with only 9 players?
  2. If one or more player short for full 20 overs (Fielding Team) and did not take part in fielding, can they join only for batting?
