new power play rule

New rule

first 10 overs – 2 fielders outside the circle – bowling team decides

second 5 overs – 3 fielders outside the circle – batting team decides or else bowling team 

third 5 overs – 3 fielders outside the circle – batting team decides or else bowling team 

The batting team will decide when to apply the second or the third power play .

New ball at the 35 over is mandatory , this rule is being retained.

This rule was in place from October 1. It will be interesting to see how dhoni and pieterson are going to use this power play . Dhoni has already explained that he is confused by the new rule and needs to play the matches to get to know the rules better.

ICC has also stated that substitute fielders will be allowed only in case of injuries or considerable reasons.
