The MCC are updating the Cricket Laws which will come effective from October 1 this year.
Two major changes that will have effect on our local competitions are;
- If the bowler breaks his stumps on delivery – NO-BALL
- Runners will not be permitted for an injured/ill batsman.
Rules surrounding backing up run outs are also being updated.
NZC expects to have new copies of the Blue book printed in NZ before that date and available to the Association.
Some more information about these rules can be read on the following links;
