To Playing Conditions Take Effect From 1 October
In line with a decision made earlier this year by the ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC), a range of new playing conditions for cricket come into effect from (1 October).
These amendments, which were unanimously approved by all 10 Full Members and the three Associate Member representatives on the CEC at its meeting at the end of June, are designed to improve the game for players, umpires and spectators. The decision was announced by the ICC at the time.
One amendment, which is to do with the interval between innings during One-Day International matches, was implemented immediately at the time of the CEC meeting at the end of June. All others come into effect on 1 October.
“Substitute fielders shall only be permitted in cases of injury, illness or other wholly acceptable reasons. “Wholly acceptable reasons” should be limited to extreme circumstances and should not include what is commonly referred to as a ‘comfort break’.”

It was also agreed that three fielders be permitted outside the field restriction areas during both the second and third PowerPlays. Previously, the third fielder was allowed outside the circle during either the second or third PowerPlay. (The idea behind the amendment is to offer greater opportunity for spinners to bowl with the safety net of more protection).
