The International Cricket Council i.e. ICC has made a big change in the Test cricket rules. Actually, the ICC officials’ committee has taken this decision to maintain the over-rate. At the same time, he has supported over-rate restrictions in Test cricket. However, with this decision, the thrill of Test cricket is going to increase further. At the same time, the ICC will introduce changes in over-rate sanctions in Test Cricket from the new cycle of the World Test Championship.
Let us tell you that the Committee of Chief Executives has supported the amendment of over-rate restrictions in Test cricket to strike a balance between the imperative of maintaining the over-rate and ensuring fair remuneration for the players. Under the revised rules, which will come into effect from the start of the current World Test Championship cycle, players will be fined 5% of their match fees for each over they fall short. And the maximum fine will be limited to around 50%.
fine will be like this
Significantly, if a team is all out before 80 overs have been reached and the new ball has not yet arrived, no over-rate penalty will be imposed, regardless of any possible delay. Because this amendment scraps the existing limit of 60 overs. Sourav Ganguly, Chairman of the ICC Men’s Cricket Committee, said: “The ICC World Test Championship has injected new energy into Test cricket and given it an exciting context. In the last edition we had only 12 draws out of 69 matches, and we want to ensure that this trend continues while giving fans the best value for money and keeping the over-rates high .
Recommendation to remove 100 percent fine on players!
He further added that “The Men’s Cricket Committee strongly felt that the over-rate penalty should continue in the form of WTC points deduction. But it was recommended that players should not risk 100% of their match fees. We believe this provides a balance between keeping the over-rate down and ensuring that we are not deterring players from playing Test cricket.”
