Day/night Tests officially sanctioned by ICC
Whole bunch of changes here:
- Participating countries may agree to play day/night Test matches. The home and visiting boards will decide on the hours of play which will be six hours of scheduled play per day while the two boards will also decide on the precise brand, type and colour of ball to be used for the match.
- Following any mode of dismissal that is not permitted off a no-ball and which is not the subject of an Umpire or Player Review, the third umpire shall, subject to the availability of suitable technology, immediately check the fairness of the delivery (foot-fault only). If the delivery was not a fair delivery, the third umpire shall advise the on-field umpire by two-way radio who should recall the dismissed batsman, indicate that the batsman is not out and signal no-ball.
- Big change to ODI field restrictions - only four fielders allowed outside the circle in non-powerplay overs. During the powerplays only three fielders are allowed out. On the other hand, the bowling powerplay is gone - only the 10-over and batting powerplays.
- Apparently the Super Over's official acronym is the OOPSE. No idea if this is new, but I did lol.
