That was by no means the intention of this Legislation, nor the best way it was ever interpreted by MCC,” said the statement.
“It is very important observe that this doesn’t change the best way the Legislation ought to be interpreted — it has been interpreted that method for the previous six years, with out a lot misunderstanding. Nonetheless, the intention is that this (change of wording) will make issues clearer,” added the statement.
The new law reads: “38.3.1 At any time from the second the ball comes into play till the moment when the bowler would usually have been anticipated to launch the ball, the non-striker is liable to be run out if he/she is out of his/her floor. In these circumstances the non-striker shall be out run out if he/she is out of his/her floor when his/her wicket is put down by the bowler throwing the ball on the stumps or by the bowler’s hand holding the ball, whether or not or not the ball is subsequently delivered.
“ The instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball is defined as the moment the bowler’s arm reaches the highest point of his/her normal bowling action in the delivery swing.
“ Even when the non-striker had left his/her floor earlier than the moment at which the bowler would usually have been anticipated to launch the ball, as soon as the bowler has reached that time it’s not attainable for the bowler to expire the non-striker beneath this Legislation.”
The new law will come into force with immediate effect, said the MCC.
