How International Cricket Has Been Changed

There had been some significant changes in International Cricket. The Cricket Committee proposed some changes to the International Cricket Council’s Executive Board, which approved the changes. Some changes are very easy to follow, but there are some complex changes there.

The changes have been made for the benefits of all quarters, especially for the cricket fans who watch cricket with great interest. David Richardson, ICC General Manager, said that two new balls from each end will be used by the fielding side. A change will take place in power-play in ODIs. The power-play overs will be at 20 per innings. The first block of 10 takes place at the start of the innings. There are some restrictions, which will not be applied to minimizing innings of a planned time of less than 40 overs. During Test, Twenty20 or ODI, a runner must not be permitted.

A batsman can change his direction between the wickets at any time, and the umpire has the right to give out the batsman so that he cannot obstruct the field. A Test match can be given extra time to finish. Again, if umpires think that 15 minutes or four overs are needed as extra time at tea break, the umpire can take the decision.

Twenty20 is a new format in International Cricket. Besides this, 60 overs have been reduced to 50 overs now. The wide has also been modified from sides to height. Among the latest changes in International Cricket, Power Plays are very well-known. Overstepping the ball is no ball, and the next ball becomes a Free Hit, and in this case the batsman can only get out by way of Run Out. As an international standard ground, the ground size has been fixed to 65 yards. In recent times, many experimentations are made for International Cricket. It can be said that the entire thinking, system, and analysis are new for better performance in International Cricket
