Prime Time Zone, Sports: International cricket is governed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). It is a well-known fact that even such a big man follows the rules laid down by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The MCC Plenary Session, which drafts the Cricket Law Book, was recently held in London. The meeting, chaired by Mike Gatting, was attended live by Kumara Sangakkara, Shane Warne and Sourav Ganguly online. On this occasion several key decisions were discussed and decisions were made. There has been a crucial debate going on over the short pitch balls thrown by pacers for the last while. There have been many complaints that batsmen are getting injured due to bouncers being thrown by fast bowlers. Currently there is a bouncer swing over the over. There were demands to remove even that single ball. The MCC reacted negatively. The short pitch ball is said to be very crucial in the game of cricket. The dominance of batsmen in the game has already increased. The MCC believes that the balance will be damaged if there are no short pitch balls. However, the MCC has made it clear that a decision on short-pitch balls in junior cricket and Thailand will be taken by December this year.
Centralized third umpires ..
Currently, the field umpires as well as the TV umpires (third umpires) are present at the stadium during international matches. The umpires on the ICC panel will be the TV umpires. The MCC feels it is inappropriate to assign one TV umpire to each match at a time when there is currently a shortage of expert field umpires. TV umpires in the English Premier League and National Football League are not present at the stadium. They sit in the central pool and watch four or five matches at once. Similarly, the MCC has decided to change the rules so that third umpires are present wherever matches are played in the world. With umpires in Central Pool overseeing two to three matches at a time, more on-field umpires are likely to be available. The MCC is of the view that the decision will not be difficult to implement as technology is on the rise. A temporary amendment was made to appoint one neutral umpire and another home umpire for some time as it was difficult to appoint two neutral umpires due to the corona.
Extension of ban on saliva ..
The MCC has enacted some temporary regulations due to the corona. The most important of these is to prevent bowlers from using saliva. However, several bowlers complained to the ICC that they could not swing the ball due to not using saliva. It was also conveyed to the MCC. Corona says the ban on spitting will be extended for some time as the epidemic has not yet subsided. The MCC, on the other hand, hopes to bring clarity on the DRS methodology as well. DRS technology is currently used only by host broadcasters. As a result, in each country, each broadcaster uses a different method. But the MCC has decided to no longer use the DRS method developed by the ICC. The same DRS is expected to be used in all matches. In addition, there was a thorough discussion on the ‘umpires call’ in the LBW decision. Review is being retained at this time. But a decision will be made soon on whether it will also be considered under a review.
