MCC Committee recommends limiting bat size edges and red card suspension

08 December 2016 Current Affairs: The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) Committee has recommended limiting bat size edges and depths along with many other suggestions.
The recommendations were made by the MCC’s World Cricket Committee, headed by former England captain Mike Brearley, to bring about a balance between bat and ball.
The suggestions were made during a two-day meeting of the committee in Mumbai, which hosts the fourth Test between India and England from 8 December 2016.
The recommendations will be sent to the main MCC Committee. If approved, these changes will be implemented into the new code of the Laws of Cricket, which will be introduced on 1 October 2017.
The committee has come up with a radical proposal of introducing a football-hockey-like red card as punishment for violent acts on the cricket field.
It deliberated on the ball-tampering laws, which it felt will remain unaltered.
The committee was split vertically on the possibility of reducing Test cricket from a five-day affair to a four-day one.
It urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to continue to work towards introducing a World Test Championship and presenting the case for cricket at the Olympic Games and changing the law on ball striking a fielder’s helmet.
It was announced that 60% of the world’s professional players supported the decision to limit the bat size to 40 mm on edges and 67 mm for depths, including 7 mm for curvature.
Also, umpires will be given the power to expel cricketers from a game for serious disciplinary breaches. The player can be ejected for threatening an umpire, physically assaulting another player, official or spectator or for any other act of violence on the field of play.
Marylebone Cricket Club : MCC is a cricket club based in London. It was founded in 1787. It was formerly the governing body of cricket both in England and Wales as well as worldwide.
In 1788, it revised the Laws of Cricket and continues to reissue them, and remains the copyright holder.
In 1993, many of its global functions were transferred to the International Cricket Council.
