We are only a few days away from the commencement of the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, and before the eighth edition of the event takes place from 16th October to 13th November, the ICC (International Cricket Council) has altered several rules.
The new set of rules has been implemented since October 1, bringing about many important changes in it such as rules related to batting, bowling, and even the use of saliva to polish the ball have been changed. Check out the new rules below:
- Now if a batsman is caught out, then only the new batter on the crease will bat. Even after changing sides, the non-striker batsman will have to stand on non-strike.
- According to the new rule, no player or bowler can use saliva to wet or polish the ball. It was implemented in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago and now has been banned by a permanent sub-clause.
- In a Test or ODI match, the batsman will have to be ready to change the strike within 2 minutes, but in T20, it has been maintained for 90 seconds.
- The highly debated “MANKAD” method to dismiss the nonstriking batter is now legal after being moved out from the unfair play section to the runouts category
- The striking batsman’s right to play the ball has been restricted, so that some part of their bat or the person remains within the pitch, failing which then a Dead ball will be declared.
- If any wrong movement is made in any way during the run-up of of a bowler before delivery, then the batting team will be awarded 5 runs as a penalty, along with call of Dead ball.
- When a batsman leaves the crease before the delivery from a bowler, the bowler can attempt to dismiss the batter by throwing the ball, for which a run out will be considered and the method will be termed Dead ball.
- Now the slow over run rate is also being implemented in ODIs, which was implemented in T20 some time ago.
