ICC Rules Changed: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has made many changes in the rules of cricket before the T20 World Cup 2022. These changes will come into effect from October 1 and will also be used in the World Cup starting October 16 in Australia. These rules mainly involve changing the method of dismissing a non-striker to run out by removing the word Mankading.
Seven rules changed by ICC
- New batsman batting when caught out
If a player is caught out, the new batsman shall bat at the strike end, even if the batsman being dismissed has changed ends.
- Complete ban on saliva
The ICC has now banned the application of saliva (spit) on the ball forever. Earlier during Kovid-19, it was implemented temporarily for two years.
- The new batsman will have to start the innings in the stipulated time
The new batsman will have to be ready to bat in the stipulated time after reaching the crease. He will get two minutes to do so in ODIs and Tests while 90 seconds in T20s.
- batsman has the right to play
The batsman will get the advantage of playing the shot by moving the ball forward or going off sound. However, some part of the batsman’s bat while playing the shot or the batsman himself must be inside the pitch. Failure to do so, Gainz will be declared dead. Whereas any ball that causes the batsman to leave the pitch will be awarded a no ball.
- Fielders’ movements
In case of any intentional or wrongful movement from the fielding side while bowling, the batting team will get five runs of penalty and the ball will be declared dead.
- non striker out at end
The ICC has recognized the exit of a batsman standing at the non-striker’s end and his dismissal by the bowler. Under this, this method of dismissal will now be considered a runout.
- Throw at striker end before bowling
Earlier, if a bowler saw the batsman going beyond the crease, he could throw him out, but now doing so will be called a dead ball.
