International Cricket Council (ICC) has introduced stricter sanctions for ball-tampering. The new regulations were introduced at its annual conference held in Dublin, Ireland. Ball-tampering has been upgraded from a level 2 to a level 3 offence.
Tampering with the ball will be now penalized with a ban of up to 6 Tests or 12 ODIs. ICC also added obscenity and personal abuse to the list of offences to bring better behaviour on the field. Also, even the concerned member board could be held responsible for its players’ behaviour.
