ICC to use no-ball technology in 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup

An off-field umpire will use technology to guage when bowlers illegally overstep the crease during the ICC women's Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.

The front-foot no-ball technology was trailed in India and therefore the West Indies recently and can be utilized in a serious tournament for the primary time. The International Cricket Council says the third umpire will monitor the front foot landing position on each delivery during the Feb. 21-March 8 competition.

On-field umpires are instructed to not call any front-foot no-balls unless advised to try to to so by the off-field official.

Part of the bowler's front foot must be behind the crease within the delivery stride. On-field umpire's at the non-striker's end usually make the choice .

The ICC said the technology was recently trialed across 12 games, during which 4,717 balls were bowled and 13 no balls were called. All deliveries were judged accurately.

Cricket has a superb diary of introducing technology to support the choice making of our match officials and I’m confident that this technology will reduce the tiny number of the front foot no-ball errors," ICC head for cricket, Geoff Allardice, said. No balls are difficult for umpires to call accurately, and albeit the share of deliveries that are not any balls is low, it's important to call them correctly."

Allardice said the technology had improved significantly since it had been first trialed during a one-day international series between England and Pakistan in 2016, enabling us to introduce it cost-effectively, and with minimum impact on the flow of the sport .

Video technology has been wont to assess dismissals during a match game and limited-overs international cricket and determine if batters were wrongly given out because on-field umpires did not signal no-ball for a bowler's front foot landing ahead of the crease. a 3rd umpire could over-rule a choice made by on-field umpires in cases where video evidence conclusively showed that a bowler had over-stepped.
