Cricket: T20, ODI matches to get new ‘5-run penalty rule’ from next month


The International Cricket Council, which is cricket’s world governing body, has decided to implement a new rule to control the time taken between the final in ODI and men’s T20I cricket. As per the new rules, the third time a bowling team fails to complete the next over within 60 seconds of the previous one, a penalty of five runs will be imposed. The match officials will have a stopwatch to check the time taken between the finals.

The new rule will apply from December 2023 to April 2024 on a trial basis. “This move is part of a wider effort to improve the pace of the game and enhance the spectator experience,” ICC said in a statement.

Last year, a similar penalty rule was introduced in ODIs and T20Is for over-slow rates. According to this rule, if the fielding team fails to start the inning within the allotted time, one fielder is stopped outside the 30-yard circle.

The ICC also made changes to its process for banning a pitch from international cricket. “Changes to the pitch and field monitoring regulations were also approved, including simplifying the criteria against which the pitch is assessed and increasing the threshold for when a venue’s international status could be removed from five demerit points to six demerit points over five. -a period of one year,” the ICC said.

The ICC board today also decided to move next year’s men’s Under-19 World Cup from Sri Lanka to South Africa, almost two weeks after the world governing body temporarily suspended cricket in the island nation as because of government interference.

The Board also approved a new gender eligibility regulation for women’s cricket whereby male participants with females who have attained male puberty will not be eligible to compete in the women’s international game, regardless of any surgical or gender reassignment treatment that may have done. ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said the changes to the gender eligibility regulations were based on an extensive consultation process. “Inclusivity is extremely important to us as a sport, but our priority was to protect the integrity of the women’s international game and the safety of the players,” he said. level these regulations will remain under the jurisdiction of individual board members.
