TV umpires to call front-foot no-balls in ICC World Cup Super League

The first game of the ICC World Cup Super League begins on July 30 between England and Ireland

Cricket Umpires

Third umpires will be monitoring the front foot no-balls during the ICC World Cup Super League, which begins on July 30 with England locking horns with Ireland.

The new regulation will be implemented on both ODI and T20I matches.

The ICC had previously used the technology during the India vs West Indies series and they were quite happy with the results. The same technology as used during the Women’s T20 World Cup which has held in Australia.

The on-field umpires will continue to call the no-balls for height. They have missed several no balls for overstepping in the past few years.

One instance to name is the 2019 IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians where umpire S.Ravi didn’t give a no-ball off the last ball in a close encounter.

Thus, ICC is taking a step forward to reduce such errors and to make matches error-free.
