The third season of the World Test Championship 2023-25 has started. After the Ashes series between England and Australia, the Test series between West Indies and India is also being played. Similarly, the International Cricket Council i.e. ICC has made a big change in the rules regarding slow over rate i.e. not maintaining the speed of overs.
It is good news for the players of both the teams that the ICC has taken a decision which will not cost them much money anymore. The ICC annual meeting was held in Durban, South Africa on Thursday (July 13). Many important decisions were taken in it. These rules have reduced the penalty for not maintaining the pace of an over in the World Test Championship.
New ICC Slow Over Rate Rules
In fact, the penalty for slow over rate (ICC Slow Over Rate Rule) has been changed in Test cricket. This information has been given by ICC. Due to the slow over rate, there has been no change in the points deducted from the teams’ accounts. However, there has been a change in the rules for deducting players’ fees.
As per the rules, the slow over rate will now be Rs 5 per cent deducted from each player’s match fee instead of 10 per cent. Recently the players of the Indian team were deducted 100 percent match fee for the final match of the World Test Championship 2021-23. However, now it will be only 50 percent.
In a historic decision by the ICC, the prize money for men’s and women’s teams will be the same
ICC has taken a historic decision ahead of ODI World Cup 2023. The ICC has announced that the women’s teams will now be given the same prize money as the men’s teams.
