ESPNcricinfo has discovered that the board needed to offer groups the possibility to rectify an umpiring error that might show expensive in closely-contested tournaments just like the IPL. With appreciable stress from gamers and consultants to deliver wides and no-balls for top below the scope of DRS, the BCCI consulted its match officers after final 12 months’s IPL.
In ODIs and T20Is, a group that concedes a no-ball additionally has to bowl a free-hit the subsequent supply, off which a batter can’t be dismissed in any method aside from a run-out. The BCCI’s consultants agreed that it was prudent to cut back the possibility of a match consequence being impacted by an umpiring error.
