For those not familiar with the game, the twelfth man in cricket is a substitute player who is included in the playing eleven only when a regular player is injured. During the game, he has to do the odd jobs of bringing water, gloves or any instructions from the captain to the batsmen in the field, as and when desired. He is often referred to as the ball boy of cricket.
