London: English Cricket has taken steps to prevent intimidatory appealling and premature celebrations by the fielding side.The initiative to stop the fielding side moving in to try to influence the umpire's decision was among a number of new regulations announced on Tuesday by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for next season.''In the event of an appeal, all members of the fielding team must maintain their fielding positions until a decision is given, unless legitimately in the act of fielding or backing up the ball which is not yet dead,'' the new regulation says.''For the purposes of this playing condition, a referral to the third umpire will constitute a decision''. The ECB has also introduced new penalties for slow over rates, saying fines had failed to improve the situation in the county championship.From the 2001 season, a system of penalty points will instead be applied for slow over rates in innings of at least 60 overs. The minimum over rate will be 16 overs per hour. If a team fails to attain this rate, calculated over the duration of the match, it will be deducted 0.25 championship points for each over short of the match target.In One-day competitions, six runs will be credited to the batting side for each complete over not bowled by the designated 'cut-off' time.(c) Reuters Limited.
