The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to introduce a new rule named "stop clock" to regulate the time taken between overs. The law will be implemented on a trial-run basis from December 2023 to April 2024 in men's ODIs and T20Is particularly.

The law states that " If the bowling team is not ready to bowl the next over within 60 seconds of the previous over being completed, a 5-run penalty will be imposed the third time it happens in an innings," as mentioned in a media release issued by the ICC.

The meeting has led to a cluster of other changes that are

expected to have a significant impact on the ever-changing landscape of the sport in both men's and women's circuits. The apex cricketing governing body has also tried to simplify the criteria regarding changes to the pitch and outfield monitoring regulations.

"Changes to the pitch and outfield monitoring regulations were also approved, including a simplification of the criteria against which a pitch is assessed and increasing the threshold for when a venue could have its international status removed from five demerit points to six demerit points over a five-year period," ICC's statement read.
