PESHAWAR, 27 June: International Cricket Council (ICC) has done away with bating power play in one day international (ODI) matches.
In its annual meeting in Barbados with ICC Chairman Sri Nawasan in the chair, members of the board presented new suggestions which the board approved. The approved suggestions included scrapping bating power play in ODIs. Now five fielders would be allowed to field outside the circle of 30 yards in the final 10 overs. Earlier, bating power play was allowed during 35th to 40th over.
The meeting also decided to give free hit on every no ball, overstepping the popping crease in T20 matches.
