When a batsman is caught out, the new batsman will come to play on strike. Changing or not changing the crease of the dismissed batsman will not affect it.
Use of saliva:

When a new batsman comes on strike after a player is out, he has to come on strike within 2 minutes in Test and ODI matches. Whereas in T20 International this time has been fixed at 90 seconds.
Striker Batsman’s right to play the ball:
This is restricted, as the bat or batter must be inside the pitch at the time of play. If the batsman is forced to come off the pitch, it will be the umpire’s call to declare him a dead ball. If a ball forces the batter to come off the pitch, the umpire will declare it a no ball.
Wrong behavior on the part of the fielding team:
If a bowler commits some inappropriate behavior or intentional wrongdoing while bowling (runup), the umpire can take action on it. Also, while putting a penalty, the batting can also add 5 runs to the team’s account.
Runout of a non-striker:
If a non-striker walks out of the crease before the bowler bowls the ball, then if the bowler runs out that batsman, it was earlier considered ‘unfair play’, but now it is considered a runout Will go
Throwing the ball at the striker before delivery:
A bowler takes a run-up to bowl the ball and sees the batsman standing ahead of the crease before coming into the delivery stride. If the bowler then throws the ball towards the striker with the intention of getting out, it will be called a dead ball.
