MCC guaranteed injured fielders to be allowed to hand gloves over to fielding replacement.
The well-established rule halted the 12th man from wicketkeeping . He is set to be overhauled under the Marylebone Cricket’s new Code of Conducts and the regulations. The conventional custodian of the Laws of Cricket confirm that alternative fielders will be allowed to leave the fielding when a wicketkeeper suffers an injury from the day the new set of code of law came into effect.Umpires will be required to give their agreement for an alternative fielder to adopt the role in order to save teams from getting the advantage of the new reduction/discount.”It seemed as if the actual wicketkeeper was genuinely injured, and right then the alternative should be allowed to come over, yet that the umpires should overtake the situation to prevent any mishap,” the MCC explained in an explanation of their amendments to Law and rules.”But one thing for sure that the alternate fielder cannot act as a bowler, wicketkeeper, batsman or captain.”The rule that states to refrain the alternative fielder from being in field as wicketkeepers has officially been instilled in the Laws of Cricket since 1980.The MCC’s changed the path for the new law to be prevailed in both international and local cricket in Australia, yet both the International Cricket Council and Cricket Australia have the right to initiate their own playing state for matches under their authority.
The rule came into existence right after the Victoria was rejected to be a replaced players as wicketkeeper Sam Harper in February of following year. He was critically Unconscious while the sheffield shield match continued .
Even though he was wearing a helmet while standing up to the spinner Jon Holland, Harper undergone the serious injury as tHe South Australia batsman Jake Lehmann unintentionally struck him in the head.
The Bushrangers was willing to use the alternative player but CA’s head of cricket Sean Cary said if we will take this step it might cost the game and will result in lowering the status.””Its being impossible to analyse that how we could allow the points to sustain as the match has already lost its first-class standard and the Sheffield Shield is a tough competition.” This must have to be discussed amongst Australia’s cricket committee. That committee has decided to discuss the MCC’s new Rules and regulations in the coming weeks.
Even after their decision of allowing the alternative players to keep wickets , no allowances were confirmed for the substitutes in their first update of the Codes since 2000.”We still want to see a replacement law introduced in first-class cricket,” Cary said in February
“And if this is the issue that no other Country is willing to do it then We are ready to jump in and give it a try and then we will report it back to the ICC As long as the competition Sustains its first-Class Standard .
