New Delhi. Both India and Pakistan teams had to bear the brunt of the new ICC rules. In fact, the bowlers of India and Pakistan failed to bowl 20 overs in the stipulated time. This also affected the outcome of the match. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja’s innings helped India register a thrilling win over Pakistan
What is the new rule of ICC
According to the new ICC rules, the bowling team will have to complete their quota of overs within the stipulated time in any case. If the team lags behind the stipulated time in the over rate, then one of its fielders will not be able to stand outside the 30-yard radius for the remaining overs. He has to stay inside. The bowling team has to suffer due to this rule. Currently, there are 5 fielders outside the 30-yard circle after the powerplay (first 6 overs). But after the new rules, only 4 fielders will be able to stay outside the circle. This rule is applicable from 16 January 2022.
Rohit Sharma also caught in face of new rule
Pakistan’s team was struggling after scoring 114 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 17 overs. It seemed that the team would not even be able to score 135. But due to the slow over rate in the last overs, Rohit had to bring a fielder within 30 yards. After this, the Pakistan tail batsman managed to score 33 runs in the last 17 balls.
Babar Azam also got big blow
Pakistan’s team could bowl only 17 overs in the stipulated time. After this Babar Azam had to be brought inside a fielder circle in the last three overs. From here the match was tied in favor of India. India needed 32 runs in the last 18 balls. When Naseem Shah came to bowl the 18th over, Hardik-Jadeja added 11 runs in his over.
Now India needed 21 runs in 12 balls. Babar handed the ball to Pakistan’s most experienced bowler Haris Rauf in the 19th over. Pandya hit Rauf for three fours. India managed to collect 14 runs. In the last over, Pandya gave India victory by hitting a six off spinner Mohammad Nawaz.
