WHAT IS LAW?

Human beings have always lived together under rules of one kind or another. It does not matter where in the world; it does not matter in what age, whether the society in which they lived was a simple or a complex one by our present-day standards — humans have always as a matter of necessity lived by rules.
These rules are likely to be influenced by nature and the natural environment of the society in which people live, and by the simple natural instinct everyone has for survival. They may be influenced by religious or secular beliefs, and they will cater for the ideas of right and wrong that have been developed over time to suit the society in which they live.
Think about yourself. If you form a club or society to include your friends, almost certainly the first move will be to choose a leader and make up some rules. You may find that they do not all work, and as time goes by you will change and adapt them to suit your needs, and any new...

The African Union (AU) has approved a plan for a mass withdrawal from the International Criminal Court (ICC), which some African leaders have accused of not being impartial. The non-legally binding decision came behind closed doors near the end of the AU summit in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa.

A draft of the plan recommends that African countries strengthen their own judicial mechanisms and increase the jurisdiction of the African court of justice and human rights to reduce "the deference to the ICC", AP reported.

A source close to AU said the debated was quite divisive on whether there should be an individual or collective withdrawal.

There are currently 34 African countries that are signatories of the Rome Statute, the treaty which set up the court in 2002.

South Africa and Burundi have already announced their withdrawal, claiming, among other things, that the ICC was biased towards African countries.

In 2015, South Africa said it was...

Cricket was invented in the vast fields of England, supposedly by shepherds who herded their flock. Later on this game was shown benevolence by aristocrats, and now has the stature of being England's national game. After a century now, cricket stands in the international arena, with a place of its own.

THE GAME

Cricket involves two teams with 11 players on each side. The captain who wins the toss decides whether his team bats or bowls first. If they bat first , their aim is to score a lot of runs and make sure the other team does not reach that score.

FORMATS OF THE GAME

Cricket is played in many formats , but the most popular are TEST CRICKET and ONE DAY cricket. In TEST cricket game goes on for 5 days, with each team batting twice - if time permits.

ONE DAY is the most popular format, with each team getting 300 balls to score runs. And the other team tries to outscore them within the same number of balls.

DHAKA: Scores of Bangladeshi cricket fans took to the streets of Dhaka on Sunday to express their outrage hours after global cricket officials banned the country's top bowlers from competing in the World Twenty20 in India.

The demonstrators formed a human chain as they marched along a busy road in the capital, after the International Cricket Council suspended pacer Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny on Saturday from bowling in international matches for illegal actions.

The bans came as a blow to Bangladesh's chances in the World Twenty20 after they lost to Pakistan by 55 runs in their opening match of the tournament.

“Shame on you ICC. Your action is illegal,” one banner read as young fans rallied against what they described as a “conspiracy” targeting Bangladesh.

“The ICC has been consistently trying to destroy the chances of small teams like Bangladesh to do better in the World Cup. The bans of Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny are part of this conspiracy,”...

One rule that comes to my mind is the 'Declaration Rule' for Limited Overs Internationals.

While the Laws of Cricket state that you can declare an innings in a match of any length(ie Test or ODI or T20), ICC prohibits it. All international matches are played in accordance respective 'ICC Playing Conditions' rulebook. You can check out the Playing Conditions Books here

A brief list :
ICC Test Matches

Law 5.6 of the Laws of Cricket which makes specification about the ball does not apply to ICC Test matches. Playing on non-turf pitches (according to Law 7.5) is not allowed. Law 12.1(b) (as below, ) is not permitted in Test matches.

It may be agreed to limit any innings to a number of overs or to a period of time.

Single inning test matches (according to Law 21.2) are not allowed.

ICC ODIs

All the rules related to test matches(ie, Follow-ons, adding time between innings, adding time at the end of the day, changing the ball after one day's play,...

Runners will no longer be allowed in international cricket after a number of changes to the playing conditions came into force on 1 October.

The use of runners for injured batsmen had been debated after some had called for runners while suffering with cramp.

A new condition clarifies when a player can be out obstructing the field.

In one-day internationals, one ball will be used from each end, rather than it being changed after 34 overs, while the rules governing powerplays change.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) board had ruled in June that changes would be implemented from 1 October.

But the game's world governing body has stressed that the laws of cricket - which remain administered by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) - have not changed, merely the playing conditions for internationals, so runners will remain in domestic and recreational cricket.

Powerplays restrict the number of fielders permitted outside the 30-yard fielding...

Cricket

, showing a batsman who is leg before wicket. The original caption was "A clear case" (of lbw).

Leg before wicket (lbw) is one of the ways in which a batsman can be dismissed in the sport of cricket. Following an appeal by the fielding side, the umpire may rule a batsman out lbw if the ball would have struck the wicket, but was instead intercepted by any part of the batsman's body (except the hand holding the bat). The umpire's decision will depend on a number of criteria, including where the ball pitched, whether the ball hit in line with the wickets, and whether the batsman was attempting to hit the ball.

Leg before wicket first appeared in the laws of cricket in 1774, as batsmen began to use their pads to prevent the ball hitting their wicket. Over several years, refinements were made to clarify where the ball should pitch and to remove the element of interpreting the batsman's intentions. The...

A limited number of fielders are allowed in outfield during powerplay.

In the sport of cricket, different fielding restrictions are imposed depending on the type of match. They are used to discourage certain bowling tactics, or to encourage the batsmen to play big shots, enabling them to hit fours and sixes. Each team has nine fielders other than the wicket-keeper and bowler. The captain decides the fielding positions usually after consulting with the bowler. In Test cricket matches, the fielding restrictions are relaxed as compared to a One Day International.

All forms[edit]

In all forms of cricket, only two fielders are allowed in the quadrant between the fielding positions of square leg and long stop. This is to prevent the outlawed and controversial bodyline tactics from being used. Also fielders can't be placed straight ahead of batsman that would hinder the view of sightscreen.

One day cricket[edit]

In the sport of cricket a No ball is a penalty against the fielding team, usually as a result of an illegal delivery by the bowler. For most cricket games, especially amateur games, the definition of all forms of No ball is from the MCC Laws of Cricket,[1] although youth cricket often has stricter rules on beamers, and international cricket has stricter rules on beamers, but laxer rules on bouncers.

The delivery of a No ball results in one run – two under some Regulations – to be added to the batting team's score, and an additional ball must be bowled. In addition, the number of ways in which the batsman can be given out is reduced except for run out. In shorter competition cricket, a batsman receives a 'free hit' on the ball after any kind of No ball (see below). This means the batsman can freely hit one ball with no danger of being out in most ways.

No balls due to overstepping the crease are not uncommon, especially in short form cricket, and fast bowlers tend to...

Originally, all bowlers in cricket delivered the ball underarm. Although to the modern mind this conjures up images of children's games, the reality was that the best bowlers could impart considerable spin on the ball, and deliver it at quite a pace.

By the early part of the 19th century, the balance between batsman and bowler had swung very much in favour of the former, even though poor pitches kept the scores down. To counter this imbalance, bowlers started looking at ways of redressing the balance.

What happened - by natural evolution rather than any conscious decision - was the emergence of round-arm bowling with the ball delivered at or below shoulder height.

The popular story states that this came about when Christina Willes, sister of Kent cricketer John Willes, was bowling at him in their garden, and unable to bowl underarm because of the voluminous skirts that were the fashion of the time, she raised her arm higher than was usual. Probably more...
