Rule about fielders behind batsman
Is there a rule in cricket about fielders behind square not allowed to walk-in? I have seen umpires call a no-ball or a dead-ball sometimes, but am not able to find that rule anywhere.
Any guidance is much appreciated.

Nope, there is no such rule there.
I am aware of 1 rule though and its about having 2 fielders behind square. You cant have more than 2 fielders behind the square, adding 3rd might end up as a no-ball.

The rule that got called in a game recently (i forget which match it was now maybe england v bangladesh?) was that fielders must walk in a straight line when they walk in. Nothing about what position they were relevant to the batsmen just they had to walk straight so they kept the same position. The commentary used an example of a fielder behind the batsmen running out of his vision into a new fielding spot.
