Due to the Corona epidemic, the ICC has made a big change in the rules of the Women’s World Cup. According to the new rule, if more cases of corona are reported in a team and 11 players are not completed in the team, then that team can also go on the field with 9 players.
BCCI has also made the same rule in Ranji Trophy. Recently, during the Under-19 World Cup, cases of corona were reported in many teams. Many players of the Indian team were found to be corona infected. At one time it seemed that Team India would not be able to play the entire World Cup.
ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley said during a conversation with the media in Christchurch on Thursday, ‘Looking at Corona, we need to be a little soft. We manage the game keeping these kinds of circumstances in mind. We have given some relaxation to the players in the team, whereas officially they can still keep 15 players.
