I want to parse report and retrieve required information from that report.
E.g. If I am getting one report from cricket site (e.g. ESPNSTAR.com) about players and there records in whole year. If I give name of one player (e.g. Riky Pointing) then through java code I must able to get all data related to that player only. So i want to develop parse tool to scrap report and get required information.

I think you mean "scrape" as in the old hacker term "screen-scraper" not "scrap"
Java has lots of tools for parsing text - including some specific to parsing HTML such as JTidy. What have you done so far? Where are you stuck?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
