Front foot no-ball technology to be used in T20 women's world cup

Sports Desk- The International Cricket Council (ICC) changes the rules from time to time. Now ICC is going to use front foot no-ball technology in the Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. This will be the first time the ICC will implement it for the first time in a global tournament.

The ICC says the third umpire will monitor the front foot landing position on each delivery during the Women’s T20 World Cup to be held from February 21-March 8.

Earlier, the use of the Front foot no-ball technology was recently decided after successful use in India and the West Indies.

According to the ICC, the technology has been trialed across 12 games in which 4717 balls were bowled. “Cricket has an excellent track record of introducing technology to support the decision making of our match officials and I’m confident that this technology will reduce the small number of front foot no-ball errors at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup,” Geoff Allardice, ICC General Manager Cricket said.
