These are the changes in international cricket rules

League Two: Nepal lose to Oman by 13 runs

4 October, Kathmandu. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has changed some of the rules of cricket from 1 October.

The Men’s Cricket Committee, headed by former India captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, has recommended changes to the playing conditions of the MCC’s cricket rules.

The new rules will be applicable in the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October and November.

A new batsman replaces the dismissed batsman

When the batter is out, a new batter will come on strike. Whether the batsman passes before taking the catch, a new batsman will be born on strike.

Earlier, if the batsman crossed before taking the catch, the non-striker’s end batsman faced the next ball.

No use of spit: The rule not to use spit to wipe the ball has been in force in international cricket for more than two years as a temporary measure related to COVID-19. Now it is considered appropriate to make this ban permanent.

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, a rule was implemented to prevent the virus from spreading on the field. This rule came into force when cricket resumed after Covid in July 2020 and will now be made permanent.

New batter should be ready in 2 minutes

The new batsmen coming to the crease will now have to be ready to take strikes within two minutes in Tests and ODIs. The rule of getting ready in 90 seconds has been kept in T20.

Earlier there was a time limit of three minutes to strike in ODIs and Tests, but now it has been reduced. Failing to do so, the fielding captain may appeal for a timeout.

Inappropriate behavior of the fielding side

Now the umpire can award five penalty runs to the batting team if the bowler makes an unreasonable and intentional obstruction while running to bowl. And there will be a call of the dead ball.

run out by non-striker

This method of effecting run outs has been moved from the ‘unfair play’ clause to the ‘run out’ clause in accordance with the circumstances of the game.

A run out from a non-striker was previously considered unfair. Now when a non-striker is run out, it will be treated as regular run out.

run out attempt before bowling

If the batsman advances the wicket before the bowler has bowled, he shall be allowed to throw the ball to run out the striker. But now if this practice is done then it will be called dead ball.

Other Major Decisions

In-match penalties (which cause an additional fielder to be brought into the fielding circle for the remaining overs of the innings if the fielding team fails to bowl their overs within the stipulated time), introduced in January 2022 in T20 Internationals It is introduced in the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. Once completed, it will be implemented in ODIs as well.
