T20 World Cup 2022: To raise the level of the game, the International Cricket Council (ICC) frequently adjusts or alters some cricket rules. The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will include 5 new rules that will be implemented.
Players who break these regulations will be penalized during the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022. While some of these regulations are currently in effect in the shortest format, others won’t be until the competition.
Five New Rules of ICC For T20 World Cup 2022
Mankading = Runout
Mankading has long been regarded as one of cricket’s most contentious methods of dismissal. However, it will no longer be contentious to “Mankad” or “run out a non-striker.” Mankading will now be referred to as a run-out and constitute a suitable method of termination.
After Caught Out, Strike To New Batsman
Batsmen won’t be able to alter their strike during a caught-out dismissal after the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022. The batsman who enters the crease as the new batsman must take the strike. The replacement batsmen will always have to take the strike, regardless of whether batters alter their strike before the catch.
Slow Over-Rate = Fielding Penalty
If teams violate the over-rate, they will incur fielding penalties. One more extra fielder will be placed inside the circle for the remaining death overs if a team is found to have a slow over rate.
Deliveries Outside Pitch
The ICC T20 World Cup in 2022 will have this additional regulation. A batter must have some portion of his body or the bat inside the playing area if he attempts to play the ball outside the pitch (playing area). The ball is referred to as a dead ball if the batsman leaves the field of play to hit the shot. Additionally, these balls will be referred to as no-balls, and the batting team will receive a free hit.
Unfair Movements By Fielders = Penalty
Another regulation that only applies to the fielding side is this one. If fielders are seen making intentional or unfair moves while a bowler is taking a run-up, the umpire has the authority to declare the ball dead and award the batting team five extra runs.
