Cricket. With the passage of time, there have been many changes in the rules of this game. Be it any format of cricket, over time, some changes have been seen by the ICC. The ICC T20 World Cup is going to start from 16 October, due to which the ICC has made many changes in the rules of world cricket. Which will be effective from 1 October.
After discussing the rules made by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) under the leadership of Sourav Ganguly, some changes were made in it and there has been talk of implementing them anew. In which the use of saliva on the ball has now been permanently banned. Which was implemented temporarily during Corona. Whereas Mankading will also now be considered officially run out. Let us know which rules have been changed by the ICC.
# New batsman will only take strike:
According to the new rules of the ICC, after any player is out, only the new player who comes on the field will take the strike. Changing or not changing the crease of the outgoing batsman will not affect it. Whereas earlier it was a rule that if the batsman changes the strike before being caught out, then the new batsman used to come on non strike.
#Use of saliva or spit:
According to the new rules of the ICC, the use of spit or saliva to shine the ball has been completely banned. This rule was first implemented temporarily due to the covid-19 epidemic. After discussions by the Cricket Committee, it has been made completely permanent.
#Change in time taken for new batters to strike:
After the dismissal of a player in Tests and ODIs, the new batsman will have to come on strike within 2 minutes. Earlier, the time allotted for this was 3 minutes. At the same time, 90 seconds has been set for this in T20 International. If the new batter does not take the strike in time, a time out appeal can be made by the fielding team.
#Batter has to play the ball inside the pitch
No batsman shall have the right to hit the ball outside the pitch. If the batter comes out of the pitch and plays the ball, the umpire will give him a dead ball. Also, if a ball forces the batter to come off the pitch, the umpire will call it a no-ball.
#Wrong behavior on the part of the fielding team:
A penalty will be imposed by the umpire if the fielding team commits any inappropriate behavior or intentional wrong movement during the bowler’s run-up. After which 5 runs will be added to the account of the batting team. Also the umpire will call it a dead ball.
#Mankading will not be considered as Unfair Play:
According to the new rules of ICC, Mankading will no longer be considered as an unfair play. If a non-striker batter leaves the crease before the bowler has bowled, and during this time the bowler runs out that batter, it will be considered run out. Whereas earlier it was considered ‘unfair play’.
# Changed the rules for throwing the ball towards the striker:
According to the new rules of the ICC, if a bowler takes a run-up to bowl the ball and during this the batter is out of the crease. The bowler cannot then throw the ball towards the striker with the intention of being dismissed. Otherwise it will be called a dead ball.
#in-match penalty rules
The in-match penalty rule implemented in T20 Internationals from January this year will now be adopted in the ODI format as well. According to this rule, when a fielding team does not finish the over in the stipulated time, then during the remaining overs, the team gets punishment for calling a fielder inside the circle. This rule will be applicable in ODIs after the end of the Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League in 2023.
