5 Rules In Cricket that Could be Changed In The Future
The game of cricket is changing with time, new rules are coming up some of them are beneficial for bowlers and some for the betters. But here we have collected some of the rules of cricket that could be changed in the future.
#1 Ball hitting the wicket, and yet overthrows resulting
As per the recent ICC rules the batters can go for more runs when an overthrow is made by the fielding side , and though the ball has hit the wickets. While the purpose of awarding runs off an overthrow is pretty justified, there should be relook into runs being accumulated after the ball has hit the stumps.
#2 No run-out if the bat has crossed the crease
Yes it usually happens that a batsman get run out because the ball has hit the wickets and though he has passed the crease but his bat some part of his bat is in the air. Why not make the rule uniform, and if the bat has crossed the popping crease, irrespective of whether the bat is grounded or not, it should be not out. And yes this will save quite a time in determination.
#3 Fielder sliding into the boundary ropes but manages to keep the ball in play
This is something we usually see in the game of T20’s when a player going for the ball manages to keep the ball away from the rope but few parts of his body touches the rope. Now, this is unfair in two aspects. First, it takes away the brilliance of the fielder, and secondly so much time is taken away from the game.
#4 Umpire’s call in DRS
The Decision Review System was originally put into place to do away with howlers, or decisions which were iffy. According to the latest ICC directive, half of the ball has to now hit a zone that includes the outside of off and leg stumps. This will no doubt be a massive relief for the captains, but yet there could be more revisions to it.
#5 Like for like replacement before the match
We have often seen in the match that a team is forced to play with 10 or reduced number after their team mate has got injured after the toss in done. So don’t you think so that this is unfair for the team? So this rule can possible be changed in the future, and if a genuine all-rounder is injured, an all-rounder should make the cut and not a batsman or a bowler.
