The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have announced the playing conditions for both men's and women's competitions with the 25-ball powerplay, white cards, and an amended DLS being some of the highlights. Every match will have 100 balls per innings with the bowlers sending down either five or ten balls in succession, as deemed fit by the captain. Each bowler will bowl up to a maximum of 20 balls per game, with two sets of five balls will be bowled by the same bowler from the same end.
The first 25 balls of the innings will be counted as the powerplay during which only two fielders will be allowed outside the 30-yard circle. Third umpire will be checking for front-foot no-balls as has been the case in recent times.
From a significant change from the norm, the crossing wouldn't mean the non-striker would be on strike on the final ball. In case of a tied game in the group stage, one point will be awarded to each team but for the knock-out games, a super-five will be played. If the Super-five is tied, another super-five will be played and lest that ends up in a tie, teams that finished higher in the Group stage will be announced winners.
