The ICC World Cup 2019 has been in the news for more controversies than cricket and ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is cancelled. Such controversies arose during this World Cup, for which the International Cricket Council (ICC) was strongly criticized. Along with this, this season of the World Cup was also in the news for bad umpiring.
There was severe criticism for the umpiring’s poor standard. The umpire gave England six runs when the ball crossed the boundary after touching the bat of Ben Stokes in the final of the World Cup. Whereas five runs should have been given from the Quaid. It happened in the last over of the match. If England were given 5 runs, New Zealand would have won the match by one run and would have been the World Cup winner. But this was followed by a super over and England were chosen the winner in the boundary rule.
The 2019 World Cup was played in England, now four years later the ICC Twenty 20 World Cup will be held once again in 2020. This time the postponed 2020 World Cup is to be played in India. In such a situation, the ICC should change its rules by drawing lessons from the mistakes of the last World Cup. Let us know which the rules that need to be changed are.
ICC World Cup 2020
- Relocation Boundaries Rule: So the final of the World Cup was a tie, now super over was to be done according to the rules. This super over was also tied, but as England had hit more fours throughout the match, it was declared the winner. Cricket pundits are demanding to change this rule. Its two options are being mentioned. First, to see how many wickets fell in the innings of both teams. The second is to see which team gave more extra runs.
- The trophy should be shared: New Zealand coach Gary Stead says that in such a situation the trophy should be shared between the two teams. Because if both the teams could not defeat each other even after 100 overs, the decision could not be made in the super over then both the teams would be the winner. The 2002 Champions Trophy was shared between Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya and India’s captain Sourav Ganguly. However, the match ended without any result due to bad weather. If the final tie occurs then the ICC should consider agreeing to a similar agreement.
- Late matches due to rain have to be eliminated: It is astonishing that only 9 matches in Australia, England and Afghanistan got the full result. Pakistan had to pay the price indirectly. He did not make it to the semi-finals. Therefore, it should be Reserve Day due to rain in group matches. Because the priority of the ICC should be fair.
- Drop Jing Bells: There are at least five such occasions in the World Cup 2019 when Jing bells have not fallen. Because they were overweight. Virat Kohli and Australian captain Aaron Finch have expressed a desire to replace these bells. The ICC should also reconsider this.
