ICC T20 World Cup Rules And Regulations
The ICC T20 World Cup was started in 2007 by the International Cricket Council, ICC. Since then three tournaments have been conducted and this year in September and October, the fourth one is due to be held.Let us have a look at certain basic rules and regulations of the ICC T20 World Cup.
ICC T20 World Cup General Rules
- * In each innings a single bowler may only bowl up to a fifth of the total overs therefore if the innings consists of 20 overs then that bowler may only bowl 4 overs.
- * In case of deliveries by stepping over the pop crease, it is considered a no-ball. The batting team is awarded a run and the delivery after that is a free hit. This means that in the next delivery, the batsman can only be declared out if he is run out.
- * The umpire is empowered to award five runs to the fielding team if he feels that the batting team is indulging in delaying tactics.
- * The interval in a regular T20 game is 15 minutes. However, if the overs are reduced, the interval can also be reduced to 10 minutes.
- * Only if both sides have faced each other for five overs or had the opportunity to do so will the match be considered to have been played.
- * In a single T20 match, one short-pitched ball is permitted.
- * The calculation of a team’s run rate is done by deducting the average runs for each over by a particular team from thse average runs per over which were scored against it.
ICC T20 World Cup Format
- * As the name suggests, the most apparent element here is that each match consists of twenty overs per side.
- * Two teams play against each other for these twenty overs.
- * There is a subtle difference between the way the players emerge between T20 matches and other categories of matches. In the T20- matches, the batting side does not come from or go to dressing rooms. Instead they have a “bench” from which they come and go and are visible from the playing area.
ICC T20 World Cup Field rules
- * A maximum of only five fielders may be placed on the leg side at all times during the match.
- * During the first six overs, only two fielders may be placed on the outer side of the 30 yard circle.
- * The maximum number of fielders outside the fielding circle after the initial six overs is five.
- * If the fielding team fails to bowl its 20th over within 75 minutes, another six runs are added to the batting team’s total. If he feels that the batting team is using delaying tactics, the umpire can extend the 75-nute time limit.
