New ICC regulations to come into effect with Pakistan-Australia series

Dubai: The new playing conditions for Tests, One-Day Internationals (ODI) and Twenty 20 Internationals (T20Is) will come into effect with the series between Pakistan and Australia, which starts here on October 5.

One of the new rules is that the player shall not be permitted to bat in the match until his team's batting innings has been in progress for the length of playing time that is equal to stay on the ground. However, once his side has lost five wickets in its batting innings, he may bat immediately.

One of the many amendments that were agreed upon by the International Cricket Council (ICC) members was the induction of real-time 'snickometer' in the list of approved technology.

The other main amendment to the playing conditions is termed Nomination of Players, where in a playing condition has been added to provide clarification on the ground movement/action of a player/player support personnel who has been suspended in accordance with the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.

One more new amendment is that the player shall not be permitted to bat in the match until his team's batting innings has been in progress for the length of playing time that is equal to the unexpired penance time carried forward from the previous innings, subject to a maximum cumulative penance time of 120 minutes. However, once his side has lost five wickets in its batting innings, he may bat immediately. If any unexpired penance time remains at the end of that batting innings, it is carried forward to the next and subsequent innings of the match.

Also, The player shall not be permitted to bowl in the match until he has either been able to field, or his team has subsequently been batting, for the total length of playing time for which he was absent (hereafter referred to as penance time), subject to a maximum cumulative penance time of 120 minutes. If any unexpired penance time remains at the end of an innings, it is carried forward to the next and subsequent innings of the match.

A T20I innings has been increased from 80 minutes to 85 minutes and the minimum over-rate to be achieved will be 14.11.
