The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executives Committee on 23 June 2015 approved amendments to the ICC playing conditions.
The approvals were given during the ICC Annual Conference held in Barbados.
The key changes were
• In One Day Internationals (ODIs), there will be no compulsory catchers from the first to the 10th over.
• In ODIs, no batting powerplays will be allowed between the 15th and 40th over.
• In ODIs, five fielders will be allowed outside the 30-yard circle between the 41st and 50th over, rather than the current four.
• In ODIs and T20Is, all no-balls, not just foot faults, will lead to a free hit.
These playing conditions will come into effect for series starting on or after 5 July 2015.
