It has been reported that the inaugural edition of The Hundred will not have the term ‘over’, instead the game’s progress will be measured in terms of balls. Also, if a team is behind when it comes to overrate, they will need to reduce the number of players outside the inner circle.
The competition for hundreds of women and men from eight cities will begin on July 21 and will culminate on August 21. The women’s competition will mark the beginning of a new form of cricket, followed by the first men’s match of the day. 22 July. The tournament will turn out to be just 100 balls for each side of the traditional 120 balls and now, as ESPNCricinfo reports, the rules for the tournament have also been finalized.
Earlier the tournament was supposed to eliminate the term ‘wickets’, but this will remain with the term ‘overs’ being removed from the tournament. Instead of the usual call for “over,” there will be a call for “five” at the end of the bowler’s pool. There will be two sets of five balls delivered by one party before the change takes effect. Also, the same player can put the two sets if the team captain so desires. However, the referee will indicate a white card at the end of the first set of five charges.
However, the term “excess amounts” will continue to be used in scorecards and match reports. There are two other notable changes as well. First, if a team is guilty of a slow rate increase, it will be forced to reduce the number of players outside the circle directly from the point, and this penalty occurs. Also, a non-attacker would have to stay on his original end even if he crossed with his hitting partner during a caught kick.
Other changes from the standard T20 game include:
* Each ball can place max 20 balls
* The first 25 balls of each round will be Powerplay, with only two players allowed outside the inner court الملعب
* It is not necessary to take the lottery on the ground
* The modified Duckwoth-Lewis-Stern method, which takes into account balls rather than overs, will be used in rain-reduced matches
* The field team can take a strategic timeout at any time after the first 25 balls of a turn
* Tied matches in the group stage will see each team receive one point each
* Drawn matches in the knockout stage will see the use of a “Super Five” tie breaker. If the ‘Super Five’ is also tied, the team that finished higher in the ladder during the group stage will advance to the next round.
