Technology will be introduced at the women’s T20 World Cup in Australia to be held later this month in a bid to end front-foot no-ball issues.
Following trials in India and the West Indies, the use of a TV official for every ball resulted in 100% of 4,717 deliveries being judged accurately.
It will be the first time technology will be used in a global tournament. Under this system, the TV umpire will tell the on-field umpire if a bowler has overstepped.
‘Since we first trialled this concept in the ODI series between England and Pakistan in 2016 the technology has improved significantly.’
The women’s T20 World Cup runs from 21 February to 8 March.
