You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. The side that is in is trying to win, as is the side that is out but not in. But once the side that was out but not in becomes the side that is in, the side that was in but is now out, even if not all of their men were out when they were in, must get the all the men of the side that is in out and, if all the men of the side that is in are out, then the side that is out, but not in, wins. However, if the side that is in decide they can't win, then the men in the side that is in try not to get out even if they're in and the men waiting to come in hope the men who are in stay out so that they don't have to go out and try to stay in. The side who is out hope the men who are in get out so they can get the men who come in out. The side who is out but not in are still trying to win but the side who is in, but not all out ,are no longer trying to win. If two of the men in the side that is in are not out, then the side that is out trying to win and the side that is in but not out and not trying to win, draw.[/b]

Seems pretty clear to me, but no mention of the umpire not giving out one of the players whose in but then should be out, not not out.
