ICC Releases New Guidelines For Post Corona Period

New Guidelines for Cricket Post Lockdown

When the game starts after the Covid-19 pandemic, international cricketers will have to change some of their common habits such as not being allowed to go to the toilet during practice and hand over their caps or sunglasses to on-field umpires. As per International Cricket Council guidelines, players cannot hand over their personal belongings such as caps, towels, sunglasses, jumpers etc. to the umpires or teammates and they have to maintain physical distance.

But it is not clear who will keep the players’ belongings. Not only this, the umpires will also have to use gloves while catching the ball. Players cannot keep their caps and sunglasses on the field as this can lead to penalty runs as is the case with helmets. The ICC also wants the player to spend less time in the dressing room before and after the match.

The ICC Cricket Committee has already recommended a ban on salivation of the ball and now players have been advised not to touch the eyes, nose and mouth after touching the ball and to clean their hands after coming in contact with the ball. Similarly, this new law may increase trouble for the players as they have got used to of it.
