The International Cricket Council (ICC) has changed a few old rules, which will occur during the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The main board has listed eight rules, which will be implemented from Saturday, 1st October 2022.
Under the supervision of the former Indian captain and current president of the BCCI, Sourav Ganguly, the Men's Cricket Committee has made these eight ICC rules which are updated from the 2017 code of laws in Cricket.
In today's segment, we shall list those eight ICC rules which have been changed and tweaked by the International Cricket Council.
The ICC Rule one says that the bowlers cannot use their saliva to shine the red or white ball in International Cricket.
Earlier, until COVID-19 came, the bowling team used to use their saliva to shine the cricket ball during matches. But according to the ICC rule, the players are not allowed to do that.
The second ICC rule says the new batsman should be on the strike even when the batter on the crease is caught out by the fielder when they cross over while the catch is being taken.
The non-striker batsman leaving the crease when the bowler is in his run-up or before delivering the ball is called Mankading.
According to ICC rule three, this action will be legal and be called a proper run-out instead of telling it as an unfair play.
The batters were given three minutes to reach the batting crease in the red ball and fifty overs. But this rule has been changed according to ICC rule number four.
There will be a time-out in Test matches and ODI format, where the batter should reach the crease in just two minutes and 90 seconds in T20I matches.
According to ICC rule number five, the fielders cannot make any unfair movements on the ground when the bowler is running to bowl.
If they are caught doing that, then five runs will be awarded to the batting team, and that delivery would be called a dead ball.
The ICC rule six says that the batters cannot move beyond the pitch to play a shot. If they do that, the umpires can call that delivery a dead ball.
The bowlers cannot force a batter to leave the pitch to play a shot. That delivery will be called a no-ball, and batters would get a free hit.
From January 2022, a penalty was introduced if the bowling side failed to complete the overs in a specific time in the shortest format. If they failed, a maximum of four fielders would be allowed in the thirty-yard circle.
This rule was seen during the India Vs Pakistan match of the Asia Cup 2022, and it is in the T20 World Cup 2022, and other ICC matches like the ODIs after the completion of the World Cup Super League 2023.
The last ICC rule, number eight, says that the bowlers cannot throw the ball towards the batsman on the crease even if they come down the pitch.
The ICC has said that such an act will not be allowed and that delivery will be called a dead ball.
