To implement this rule, the ICC will be held in the annual conference of the ongoing ICC in London. It is believed that it will be implemented soon so that this rule can be used in all the matches played under the World Test Championship.
During the World Cup ended on Sunday, first South Africa’s Hashim Amla, and then Alex Kerry of Australia was injured on the ball of Jofra Archer. The staff had gone out of the ground after the injury. They did not return for batting again. On the other hand, Kerry of Australia had batted with a bandage on the face. During this time, he continued to bleed out of his injury.
The Sri Lankan team’s two players, Kushal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne, were on a tour of Australia this year. Then Dimuth was taken to the hospital. During that time the Connection Substitute was discussed. Recently Australian captain Aaron Finch supported this rule.
When was the first talk of this rule?
After the death of former Australian opener Philip Hughes, discussions about this rule were begun. Hughes had a bouncer on his head in a match of the Sheffield Shield tournament in 2014. After this Hughes was taken to the hospital, but he could not be saved.
What will change with the rules?
If a batsman or bowler is injured now he goes out of the field. No one else can bat or bowl in place of him. However, he can do fielding. After the implementation of the Convention Substitute Rule, the player who came to the field after batting can bowl or bowl. For example, if Virat Kohli is injured, then a pure batsman in the 15-member team can take his place. Bumrah can not take their place. If Bumrahah injures, then a sharp bowler can take his place. No spinners or batsmen.
Where is the first rule used?
Cricket Australia first used the rules of the Convention Substitution in the 2016-17 season in both domestic ODIs (both male and female), Big Bash and Women’s Big Bash series. Due to the lack of acceptance of this rule from the ICC, he could not use it in the Sheffield Shield and other first-class tournaments. The England Cricket Board had implemented this in the county last season.
