ICC Cricket Rules: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has made major changes in 9 important rules of cricket. Recently, there was a lot of discussion about Charlie Dean’s run out in the ODI series played between India Women and England Women. From cricket experts to fans, they had presented their different views on this issue. Meanwhile, the ICC had also made changes in many rules of cricket, which have come into force from today.
Mankading has also been included in these rules changed by the ICC. These rules have been approved by the ICC Chief Executive Committee headed by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. All these rules have come into effect from October 1, 2022.
The new batsman will take the strike on the catch out.
Under this rule, when the batsman is caught out, then only the new batsman will come to the crease. Whether he has crossed the non striker batsman during the catch or not. According to the old rule, the non-striker would come to the crease if the batsman who was dismissed had run over the other batsman during the catch.
Flashing the ball with saliva completely banned
Bowlers were often seen shining the ball with saliva to get good swing. However, after the arrival of Kovid, it was temporarily banned. But now the ICC has completely banned the use of saliva. After this rule, shining the ball with saliva will be considered as ball tampering.
Less time to take strike
After the fall of the first wicket in Test and ODI cricket, the new batsman was given three minutes to come on strike. Now this time has been reduced to two minutes. At the same time, in T20 this time has been kept only 90 seconds.
A ball outside the pitch will be a dead ball
If the batsman goes out of the pitch while trying to play any ball, then the batsman will not get any run on that ball and that ball will be called a dead ball. At the same time, if a bowler bowls such a ball, in order to play, the batsman is forced to go outside the pitch. That ball will also be called a dead ball. According to the earlier rules, the batsman could play the ball from anywhere.
Improper act of fielder will result in a penalty of 5 runs
If any player on the field is found to be doing any kind of inappropriate behavior before the bowler has thrown the ball, then that ball will be declared as a dead ball. Also 5 runs can be given as penalty to the opposition team. Its decision will be taken by the on-field umpires.
non striker run out
If the non-striker batsman leaves the crease before the bowler bowls the ball, he will be declared run out. Earlier it was considered as Mankading. This rule was earlier called ‘Unfair Play’. But now it will be considered appropriate.
Penalty will be imposed on slow over rate
This rule already exists in T20 cricket that if the bowling team is not able to start the last over according to its stipulated time, then the team will have to keep an additional fielder in the circle of 30 yards for the remaining overs. After the 2023 ODI World Cup, this rule will be implemented in ODI cricket as well.
Currently, hybrid pitches are used only in women’s T20 matches. Now following these rules, hybrid pitches can be used in all matches. Explain that artificial grass is used in hybrid pitches. This pitch will be used only after the consent of both the teams.
Will not run out before bowling the ball
Earlier the bowler had the right that if he saw the batsman coming out of the crease before throwing the ball, then the bowler could throw him out, but now this rule has been completely changed. The batsman will now be able to play outside the crease without any hesitation.
