Cricket has a huge craze among people worldwide and it’s only growing with time. We all noticed the level of excitement among the cricket lovers during the recent Champions Trophy. With the increase in craze and demand, ICC is continuously working on making the cricket watching experience better for the viewers. In the process, they have come up with new implementations including the ones of DRS.
As per the suggestions by several council members during the last ICC meeting in May, it has been decided that the teams will not be losing their reviews if the review is lost by an ‘umpire’s call’ verdict.
Now, this is a sort of relief for all the cricketers and the lovers of cricket. Isn’t it? But that’s not everything. ICC has decided to implement some rules regarding the size of bats, on-field behaviour and run outs.
Regarding the bat size, it has been declared that measurements will have the limit of 108mm in width, 67 mm in depth and 40mm at the edge.
On-field behaviour will be checked and if any player indulges in misconduct, the umpires will have the right to send them out of the game. The ICC quoted, “All members have agreed to implement this in full.” Also, a new rule regarding the runouts has been implemented.
It says that the batsmen will be declared not out if their bat bounces after being grounded behind the crease line.
Well, we support all the new rules by ICC and feel they will change the cricket for better. What do you think? The rules will come into effect from October 1 this year
