New ICC Cricket Rules
 
ICC announced that it will bring the new rules into effect from Thursday, 28th September, 2017.


The new rules deal with on-field player behavior, bat sizes and giving power to the umpire to send the aggressive and guilty player off the field. There have been changes made to the DRS system as well.

Since the new changes come into effect on Thursday, they will affect the South Africa and Bangladesh Test series, as well as the Pakistan-Sri Lanka Test series. The India-Australia ODI series is the last series to be played under existing conditions.


The following are the new rules that will come in effect from 28th September, 2017:

The thickness of the edges can’t be more than 40mm and the overall depth can be a maximum of 67 mm. The length and width of bat remain unchanged. Umpire will use a bat gauge to measure and check the legality of the bat.




New ICC Rules : PLAYER SEND-OFF

New ICC Rules : PLAYER SEND-OFF 


A serious misconduct by any player will result in him/her to be sent off from the field. The new rule will apply to Level 4 offences while the Level 1 to 3 offences will continue to be dealt with under the ICC Code of Conduct. Level 4 offences include threatening to assault an umpire, making inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with an umpire, physically assaulting a player or any other person.

A review will now not be lost by a team in case of a decision that remains unchanged due to ‘umpire’s call’. The teams will also get a review in T20Is and there will be no renewal of number of reviews in Test innings after 80 overs. This means only 2 unsuccessful reviews in each innings will apply.


New ICC Rules : RUNOUTS

New ICC Rules :RUNOUTS 


If a batsman is running or diving towards the crease with forward momentum with his/her bat grounded behind the popping crease but loses contact with the ground at the time of the wickets being disturbed, will considered to be not out. Same rule will apply for a player trying to regain ground to avoid being stumped.



New ICC Rules : CATCHES

 New ICC Rules : CATCHES 


For catches taken on the boundary, airborne fielders making their first contact with the ball will need to have taken off from within the boundary, otherwise a boundary will be scored. Additionally, a batsman can now be out caught, stumped or run out even if the ball bounces off the helmet worn by a fielder or wicket-keeper.


“Most of the changes to the ICC playing conditions are being made as a result of changes to the Laws of Cricket that have been announced by the MCC. We have just completed a workshop with the umpires to ensure they understand all of the changes and we are now ready to introduce the new playing conditions to international matches,” said ICC General Manager (Cricket) Geoff Allardice.
