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.
