As I said in my previous answer, Zings, the new high-tech LED stumps, are very costly. The entire set-up during a match costs US$ 40,000. That's why Bronte EcKermann, the inventor of Zings doesn't allow players to uproot them after winning the match. He also denied to take them even after winning the final. But as an exception he said that he will allow MS ...

The obvious benefit of continuing the match into the second day is that it increases the chance of getting a result, given that there is no guarantee that a full day's play is possible on the second day. Indeed, the 2002 ICC Champions Trophy demonstrated the risk of starting anew. Despite 52 overs being completed on the first day, and 58 on the reserve day, ...

If Pakistan lose to Bangladesh, they have 9 points, which is less than the top four teams. They cannot make the semifinals this way. If Pakistan draws with Bangladesh, they require England's run rate to drop below their own, which requires an extremely large loss to New Zealand.

There is a new ICC regulation that teams in televised matches must have contrasting kits, just as in football or many other sports1. As India's normal blue jersey would clash with England's, one of the teams had to change - and the rules are that England always get priority as the home team for this World Cup, so India played the England match in their ...

The first Twenty 20 world cup was played in the year of 2007 but, the super over was introduced by ICC only in the year of 2008. When India and Pakistan's match went for tie in the first T20 world cup, Bowl-Out method was used to break the tie. Then, the super-over method was introduced to replace bowl-out method in 2008.

The seedings are based on the rankings of the each of the participating nation at the cut off point. The seeding is done so that teams entering the next round (irrespective of where they finish) know which venue they will be headed to. The main reason this was done was for the fans. Now the fans, especially the ones that come from a foreign nation, can ...

Cricket and football are totally different sports. There is no similarity between both sports. Every aspects of both sports are different (with some exceptions). So same apply to their major tournaments like world cups as well. We can't really compare tournament's rules of different sports. This is totally up to the tournament organizer like FIFA for ...

Answering your main question: Why some of matches remains tie and some goes to superover? The decision of keeping the match tie or go for tie breaker like Super Over depends on a particular series. Mostly, tie breaker is used in the series between more than two countries like any ICC world events, continent tournaments like Asia cup etc. Regarding your ...

"Tossing the ball up" is also know as "flighting the ball" wherein the ball is bowled at more inclined trajectory. The reason spinners toss the ball up is to induce a false shot from the batsman to get him out. If the ball is bowled with a higher revolution count, then it dips & bounces much earlier than the batsman normally expects. Thus if the ...

bowler always bowls from one side, there is no rotation Note that this means that you are not playing in accordance with the Laws of Cricket. In particular, Law 17.1 states: The ball shall be bowled from each end alternately in overs of 6 balls.

Before the Bangladesh match, Pakistan have scored 1710 runs from 338.5 overs and conceded 2073 runs from 303.4 overs. Even given a very unlikely scenario: Bangladesh bat first and are all out for zero. Pakistan score the one run they need to win without facing a legal ball (no ball, wide, etc) Pakistan's numbers will now be 1711 runs from 338.5 for, and ...

I initially wrote this as a comment on Nij's Answer but thought it deserved its own answer. It depends on if the Umpire has deemed the ball to be dead From Law 20 - Dead Ball 20.1.1 The ball becomes dead when 20.1.1.1 it is finally settled in the hands of the wicket-keeper or of the bowler. [...] 20.1.2 The ball shall be considered to be dead when it is ...

This depends on the definition of an overthrow. It seems that the current set of rules (pdf) don't define what an overthrow is, only refer to it. From what I see in the video replay, the ball was en route to its intended target - the vicinity of the stumps, so it would have either hit the stumps or been collected by the wicketkeeper had Stokes' bat not ...

This seems to be for Indian Players only because the BCCI has decided that players who have represented India in one Under-19 World Cup cannot take part in another edition of the tournament, even if they meet the age criteria to do so. Apart from this, the BCCI also passed a rule that players can only play a maximum of two season of Under-19 cricket. This ...

While it looks like there was a five year gap between the 1987 and 1992 World Cups, the reality is the 1987 World Cup was held one playing season too late, which necessitated the 1992 edition taking place when it did, rather than in 1991. The 1987 World Cup was held in Oct-Nov 1987, more than 4 years after the 1983 event in England. As has been shown since ...
