ICC Slow Over-rate Penalty – Extra fielder inside the circle will also be included in ODI


After imposing penalties for slow over rates in T20Is, the ICC has decided to bring in-match penalties into play in ODIs as well. For each over the fielding team is reduced to the designated end time of the innings, after taking time allowance in play, they must have an additional fielder inside the ring. For example, if a team completes only 48 overs at the end of their stipulated time, the last two overs must be bowled with only four fielders outside the ring.

This will come into effect from the end of the One Day Super League next year.

In January this year, the ICC introduced a rule for T20Is for both men and women, where, if the fielding team is unable to start the last over of the innings within the stipulated time, they will be penalized by bringing in an extra fielder. . Within a circle of 30 yards. That is, they will be able to keep maximum four fielders on the boundary. This rule will now be applicable in ODIs starting next year as well.

The ICC, in its new playing conditions, has completely banned the use of saliva to shine the ball initially as a temporary measure during the COVID-19 pandemic. that aside:

The changes were ratified by the ICC’s Chief Executives Committee after being recommended by the Men’s Cricket Committee, led by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, and shared with the Women’s Cricket Committee, which backed the recommendations to the CEOs.

The playing conditions for men’s and women’s ODIs and T20Is will also be amended so that hybrid pitches can be used, if agreed upon by both teams. Currently, hybrid pitches can only be used in women’s T20Is, as seen at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
