ICC changes to take effect
A swag of rule changes will come into effect in all international formats later this month after the International Cricket Council confirmed they’ve made numerous amendments to their playing conditions.
Restrictions on bat thickness, the power for umpires to send violent players off the field and tweaks to the Decision Review System are among the most notable rule modifications the ICC will introduce from tomorrow.
The changes will come into effect for upcoming South Africa-Bangladesh and Pakistan-Sri Lanka Test series, while the ongoing One-Day International series between India and Australia will be the last time matches are played under the existing regulations.
The majority of the changes have been made in response to the Marylebone Cricket Club’s updated Code of Laws, introduced earlier this year. (cricket.com.au)
