As the T20 World Cup 2021 is just around the corner, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has unveiled the playing rules to be followed for the first time in the history of the T20 World Cups.
According to the new rules, each team will be given a drink break of two minutes and thirty seconds. Priorly, there were no such drink breaks in Twenty-Twenty International games. In a match, both teams will get the drink breaks during their respective innings.
Moreover, the Decision Review System is set to make its debut in the T20 World Cup. It will be introduced for the first time in T20 World Cup 2021. The review will only be lost if the team’s analysis and the third umpire’s call contradict. Each team will have two reviews during their respective play time.
Also, as per the ICC announcement, there are new rules to be implemented for the rain-affected matches. In case, if a game gets interrupted due to a drizzle, there will be increase overs to achieve the obtained results via the DLS method.
“To constitute a match, a minimum of 5 overs have to be bowled to the team batting second subject to a result not being achieved earlier. For the semi-finals and final, a minimum of 10 overs have to be bowled to the side batting second, subject to a result not being achieved earlier,”
However, there are reserved days for the semi-final, final in case of emergency circumstances but in case, if the semi-final gets tied, the team, with the best possible ranking on the Super 12 chart, will be proceeded to the final. Whereas, if the final gets tied, two teams will be declared joint winners of the tournament.
Announcing the super over rule, the ICC said that for the semi-final, the final, unlimited super over will be played until the winner is obtained but there will be no boundary count just like ICC ODI World Cup 2019.
