The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that the upcoming men’s T20 World Cup will, for the first time – feature the Decision Review System (DRS). Following the already set rules of T20 international cricket, each team will be given the option to ask for two reviews per innings.
The announcement about the use of DRS system was made when the cricketing council released the playing conditions for the upcoming tournament. As per those conditions, there will be a “drinks break” during each innings of the matches, however, the players won’t be allowed to practice during these breaks.
During these breaks, “The Head Coach may consult with the on-field players during the drinks break for tactical reasons,” ICC announced, saying that “If the scheduled number of overs in an interrupted match is 14 overs or less there will be no drinks break”.
The council also added new changes in the rules regarding the rain-affected matches by by increasing the numbers of minimum overs required to be played to achieve a result through 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,” the new playing condition said.
Meanwhile, in case of a tie, a Super Over will be played, and in case a Super Over ends as a tie, then subsequent Super Overs shall be played until there is a winner, the ICC announced.
The men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to begin from October 17, in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
