Stop Clock Rule: ICC has announced the implementation of the stop clock rule from the World Cup in its annual board meeting. This new rule of ICC will be implemented in ODI and T-20 cricket from June 2024. Let us tell you that this rule was used on a trial basis in December 2023. This rule has been introduced to increase the speed of the game or to follow the average time. Due to this new rule, teams will have to maintain the pace of their overs, otherwise the opposition team will get the benefit in the form of penalty.

What is Stop Clock rule?

According to ICC, stop clock will be arranged in every ground. The stop clock will work before the end of one over and the beginning of the second over. As soon as the over is over, it will be the responsibility of the third umpire to start the stop clock. The clock will run from 60 to zero seconds. The bowler has to be ready to bowl the next over before the time runs out. According to the rules, if this rule is violated, the fielding captain will be warned twice. However, if the mistake is repeated for the third time, a penalty of 5 runs will be imposed on the team.
