These three new rules of Big Bash League are very interesting and have made cricket more entertaining

Like the IPL in India, Australia also has a T20 league called the Big Bash League. The 13th season of this league started on December 7th and runs until January 24th. During this period, 44 games will be played between a total of 8 BBL teams.

However, many key players of the Australian cricket team are playing in the ongoing Test series against Pakistan and hence cannot play in the BBL but are still having a lot of fun in this T20 league of Australia. Like the IPL, this Australian league has also added some new rules which has made this game of cricket even more exciting than before. Let us inform you about some of the new BBL rules.

There is such a cricket stadium in Australia, the roof of which is built over half of the pitch. For this reason, the high ball often does not hit the roof and crosses the boundary line. The name of this stadium is Marvel Stadium. In the last BBL season, two batsmen received sixes for hitting the ball on the roof of this stadium, following which there was some protest and controversy.

Cricket Australia settled this dispute in the 13th BBL season. According to Cricket Australia’s new rule, if a batsman hits the ball on the roof of Marvel Stadium and the umpire is of the opinion that the hit could have resulted in a six, the umpires will award him a six, and if the umpire feels like the ball can’t go to a six. If that were possible, this ball would be classified as a dead ball.

Apart from that, another rule was changed this BBL season. If the fielding team calls for a stump-out for a batsman, the third umpire will consider only the option of a stump-out. In addition, the transfer does not examine any further options for leaving. If the captain needs to appeal or review the dismissal for the same ball by means other than the stumps, the fielding team captain must use his DRS.

Previously, it was always the case that the side umpires referred to the third umpire after a stump-out objection, and along with the stump-out, the third umpire also considered other exit options such as LBW. This would have saved the fielding team’s DRS, but Cricket Australia has now created new tension for the fielding captains by changing this rule.

The 13th season of the BBL added another new rule that already applies to men’s international cricket. Now, in every game, the third umpire will keep an eye on the bowlers’ feet on every ball. If a bowler bowls a no-ball, this is immediately reported to the field umpire, whereupon the field umpire declares that ball a no-ball and his next ball is a free hit.
