New rules of ICC


International cricket council has made many big changes in rules of cricket. The new rules of International cricket council were announced on official twitter handle.

  • International cricket council will be applying both numbers and Instagram handles on players T-shirts from the beginning of the World Test Championship.


  • In further changes ahead of the World Test Championship, the tradition of the coin toss will be replaced by a @Twitter poll, allowing fans at home to decide who bats and bowls!

  • If the temperature reaches 35°C, the ICC’s updated playing conditions will allow all Test players the option to wear shorts!

  • In a move to bring fans even closer to the sport, broadcasters will have the option to position commentators on the field of play behind the slips cordon.

  • After taking a catch, the fielding team will be permitted to complete a ‘Double Wicket Play’ by running out the other batsman.

  • Two minor changes will be made to cricket terminology with no balls and dot balls to henceforth be known as ‘Faults’ and ‘Aces’.

  • Runs scored in the evening session of day/night Tests will count double, creating a new and exciting strategic element!

  • And finally, should teams be level on the World Test Championship table, the first tie-breaking criteria will be ‘Away Runs.’

Are you shocked by reading these new rules? So were we, until we finally realized that International cricket council has played a prank on cricket fans on the eve of April fools day!

But some people liked the rules! One of them being, former English skipper Miachel Vaughan. He said that he really liked the rules in a tweet.

In another tweet he said that he really liked the idea of putting social media handles of players on T-shirts.
