This may necessitate a change in technique, in response to the ICC, particularly on the conclusion of the innings when a lower-order hitter joins a set top-order participant on the different finish.

The subsequent batter will now at all times be the participant on strike, though a catch dismissing the lower-order participant up to now would have introduced the set participant again on the striker’s finish for the next supply. 

4. Unfair motion by the fielding facet 

There are modifications to the punishment for gamers who break the legislation, even when the official stance on improper fielder motion has not altered.
