ICC T20 World Cup 2022: How New ICC Rules Will Impact The Teams. The International cricket council (ICC), from time to time, modifies the existing rules in cricket and comes up with new rules, that have a positive impact on the game. They closely monitor the existing rules and if any loopholes are there, it is addressed. Recently, the world cricket governing body ICC decided to bring some new rules for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
These rules will play a significant role in uplifting the game. Given below is a brief overview of the top 5 new rules that will be officially implemented in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
New Batter Coming To The Strike
Till now, in cricket, there is a law that if any batter hits the ball, and by the time the ball gets caught by the fielder, if the batsman crosses over, then the new batsman who comes to the crease, will be at the striker’s end. But, from the upcoming t20 world cup, this law is modified. According to the new rules, the new batsman will always be at the non-striker end, even if they cross over during the field of play.
Time Out For A New Batsman
According to the existing rules, a new batter is allowed three minutes to walk out and take strike after the fall of a wicket in ODIs and Tests. This rule has been amended by the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The time has been reduced from 180 seconds(3 minutes) to 120 seconds (2 minutes). The main reason for this reduction in time is to benefit the broadcaster.
Unfair Feilding Penalty
In cricket, teams generally taunt the batsman and try to deceive them by doing some strange tactics to dismantle their concentration. ICC has taken cognizance of this situation. Starting this T20 World Cup, if the fielding team tries to create any disturbance, while the bowler is running to bowl, will be deemed an act of indiscipline. The batting team will be awarded 5 runs penalty and the ball will be called a “no ball”.
Bowler Throwing Towards The Striker’s-End Before Delivery
Earlier, if the bowler saw a non-striker advancing from the crease, before the bowler was in a delivery stride gave the bowler full right to make him run out. However, this has been scrapped from the upcoming t20 world cup 2022. If any bowler does this, it will be declared an illegal delivery. However, this is different from the “mankind” law.
Batsman And Bowlers To Not Leave The Pitch
A batsman on the strike, won’t be allowed to move beyond the confines of the pitch to play a delivery. Any such shot played will give the umpire full right to call the ball dead. Also, any ball bowled by the bowler, which forces the batter to leave the pitch will be declared as a no-ball and will result in a free hit.
