T20 World Cup: From stop clock to reserve day, ICC is strict for the T20 World Cup, these will be 5 new rules


After the IPL is over, now the focus of the Indian team is on the T20 World Cup. Be it fans or players, all eyes will be on the World Cup. The ICC has also changed the reserve day rule, this rule will be seen for the first time on the cricket field.

The schedule of the ICC World Cup has already been announced, and now only a few hours are left in the World Cup. All preparations have also been completed. The ICC has also prepared a list of new rules for this mega event. This time in the World Cup you will get to see something that you have never seen before. The ICC does not want to make any mistakes regarding the T20 World Cup 2024. So there are 5 rules that we will see in this tournament.

The first is the stop-clock rule. According to this rule, the bowling team has to start the second over within 1 minute of the completion of one over. If this does not happen, a penalty of 5 runs will be imposed. That is, if the rules are broken, the score of the batting team will increase by 5 runs. However, the umpire will warn the fielding team twice about this. Action will be taken for violating the rules for the third time. This rule will be seen for the first time on the cricket field.

The ICC is strict about the timing of matches in the T20 World Cup. The ICC has set a time limit of 3 hours and 10 minutes to complete the entire match. If this does not happen then the bowling team will have to suffer. If the time is violated, the captain has to call the fielder inside the circle. The ICC has set a time of 1 hour 25 minutes to end the innings. The gap between the innings break will be 20 minutes instead of 10 minutes.

The ICC has also changed the rules of a reserve day. For the first time in the T20 World Cup 2024, there is no reserve day in the second semi-final. Reserve day has been kept for the first semi-final match, whereas if it rains in the second semi-final, then 4 hours and 10 minutes extra time will be given or the match will have to be waited for to complete.

Super Over is seen when the match is tied, but there was a rule of boundary count in case of a Super Over tie. This rule was in controversy in World Cup 2019. This rule has been removed since then. Now Super Overs will be seen in the World Cup till the result is declared.
