Do I have to have a keeper?

Does the fielding side have to have a wicket-keeper? For example when someone like Josh Healey is bowling perfect middle stump yorkers every ball at the death can the captain use 10 fielders? ...asks King
Yes. The wicket keeper is allowed to move from his normal position asa wicket keeper and act as a fielder. However, he is not allowed to wear his normal wicket keeping equipment. Also, on a side note, only 2 fielders are allowed on the onside behind square, and a keeper is exempt even if he is in this region. But, if he comes out and acts as a fielder, he will eb counted as a fielder not a wicket keeper.
