Cricket gets new rules, batting gets harder

New cricket laws that will limit the thickness of bats and provide penalty runs for bad behavior will be introduced from October 1. The maximum dimensions of a cricket bat will be set at 108 millimeters for width, 67 millimeters in depth and 40 millimeters for the edges. Other law changes involved the handling of run outs and gave umpires more discretion to penalize players for poor on-field behavior, including excessive appealing, making contact with players or officials or intimidation. Noting that the changes would come into force a month before Australia hosts England in the Ashes. John Stephenson, the MCC's head of cricket, said the game had evolved significantly over the last 14 years and it was time to rewrite some laws rather than keep making amendments.
