It really depends on why he is absent.
If he pulled a hamstring, for example, then I would go for absent injured; if he has a stomach upset then absent ill; and if the team declared then dnb.
You could give the precise reason in the comment section.

Or if he was just a no show for the entire game, his name should not be recorded at all as he should not be credited with playing the game (ie only 10 players listed).

most of the time i'm not aware of the reason they are absent and there are numerous options available in Cricket Statz, so was wondering what other people typically use when they are unsure....

Our "no shows" still get a a match credit as there name was listed on the team sheet handed to the umpire.
