Hi , The law 1of MCC says\’By agreement a match maybe played between sides of fewer than or more than 11players but no more that 11 players may field at any time\’So in case a match is played with such an agreement should both the team contain the same number of players?I mean 12 each or 10each.Orthere ┬áis no such provision?I mean can they play with Side A having 12players and side B having 10 players? Thanks.

It is normal to have the same number of players but not essential. In the 19th Century MCC touring teams of 11 often played opposition teams of 22 players.
