There are some rules and regulations of the Asia Cup that have been modified this year, which MCC makes. These modifications are made to create international cricket more controlled. So, in this article, we will briefly describe all of them.
Asia Cup Rules And Regulations
Following are some of the rules and regulations that have been modified:
1: Batsman Return
After the batsman has been caught, the other batsman will come to the striker’s end.
2: Dead Ball
If any ball has been distracted or disadvantaged by anything, such as any animal, person, etc., that ball will be called a dead ball.
3: Ball to The Striker’s End
This ball will be called a dead ball if the bowler attempts to run right after the striker before the delivery stride entrance.
4: How to Judge a Wide?
Broad will be judged or applied wherever the batsman stands in the place of the striker since the bowler starts to run.
5: Striker’s Right
This rule has been modified for the batsman, like if the ball is away from him and if the batsman can hit it, then he can, as MCC now permits it.
6: Unfair Movement
If any unfair movement is witnessed from the fielding, they will be awarded almost five runs from them.

This rule has not been modified because the bowler has the right, and he is allowed to run out the batsman if it is possible.
8: No use of Saliva
According to the new rules by MCC, it is not allowed to use Saliva. Before this, it was also banned during the time of Covid because of safety measures.
These modified rules and regulations must be followed during the Asia Cup; otherwise, strict actions will be taken against players who won’t follow them.
