Cricket has suffered a lot in the last one year due to Corona virus. In June last year, in an attempt to restart cricket, the ICC changed the rules, including the umpire not taking players’ caps on the field. Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi has not liked this ICC rule. Shahid Afridi became very unhappy when the umpire’s cap was not taken during a PSL match.
Afridi, playing for Multan Sultans in Pakistan Super League, was unhappy during the match against Peshawar Jalmi when the umpire refused to take his hat when he came for bowling.
Afridi expressed his displeasure by tweeting. Afridi said, “I am shocked why the umpires are not allowed to take the bowlers’ hats when they live in the same bio-safe environment in which the players and management live and even shake hands when the game ends .
Rules changed last year
The ICC changed its rules in June last year because of Kovid 19. The rules that were changed included not having saliva on the ball and not taking the players’ caps by the umpire. Apart from this, the ICC also included players joining hands with each other.
