Cricket is regarded as a gentleman’s game. No matter what the cricket regulations state, the game is always played in that spirit. However, there have been a few isolated events that may have given rise to the game’s most bizarre and bizarre regulations. And some of them are incomprehensible.
The majority of the rules make sense, but there are a few that we never understand why they exist.
Cricket can be played without bails
It is legal to play cricket without bails under the laws of the game. The most recent occurrence occurred on June 9, 2017, when Afghanistan played West Indies and the bails could not be placed on the stumps due to strong gusts. As a result, the captains and umpires agreed to play without them.
Cricket has its own penalty decision
If the cricket ball strikes the keeper’s helmet on the ground, regardless of the power with which it strikes the helmet, it is called a PENALTY, and the batting team is given 5 runs.
No appeal, no wicket
The necessary appeal is one of cricket’s strange regulations. An umpire can’t declare a batsman out unless the bowling side asks for it, according to Law 31. The umpire will not pronounce the batsman out even if he is technically out and the fielding team does not appeal. The appeal is generally in the form of a question, such as “How’s that?”
Mankading Vs Shaken Spirit Of The Game
Vinoo Mankad began employing this strange tactic to run out the batter at the non-striker end during a Test series against Australia in 1947/48. He ensured that the non-striker was out of the bowling crease and that the batsman was out before he began his action. His strange act of dismissing a batsman was not well received by everyone. However, there is a regulation that states that the runner must be inside the crease before the bowler bowls. Most cricket experts oppose this method of dismissal.
Ariel Stoppage = Dead Ball
Whether technology is a blessing or a curse will always be a contentious issue for future generations to debate. Cricket, on the other hand, has a solution to this issue. A ball is deemed dead if it collides with the spider cam hovering on the ground. It is deemed a dead ball even if it is a sure shot six or catch.
