ICC has introduced an in-match penalty for slow overrates in both men's and women's T20I, effective from this month onwards. As per the overrate regulations of the ICC, the fielding team should be in a position to bowl the first ball of the final over of their innings by the scheduled time for the end of the innings. In case they fall short, sides will be allowed one fewer fielder – four instead of five – outside the 30-yard circle for the remainder of the innings.
