While the members of one time are at the batting position, one member of the opposing team serves as a bowler who delivers the ball while the rest of the players fulfill their role as a fielder.

The responsibility of the fielders is to catch the ball as soon as the batsman hits it in order to stop him from making runs. Other than that fielder has the power to dismiss a batsman, when the batsman hits the ball and if the fielder is able to catch the ball with it being touching the even once then the batsman is automatically dismissed. If the fielder is able to hit the wicket with the ball and the batsman is not inside the crease then also he gets dismissed.
