out order
1 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11

remains? 8th Guy ( 6th down)
Yes Correct.
The batsman No.8 will be the not out batsman because if the wickets fall from ball No.1 then the No.2 batsman will be left standed on the other side of the pitch and when the next over starts after 6 balls, the batsman who were out will be batsman No. 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and during the start of 2nd over batsman No.2 will take strike and in the other end batsman No.8 will be non striker. In the 2nd over, the wickets will be of batsman No.2, 9, 10 and 11. So the not out batsman will be batsman No.8.
