Application of new PTA regulations
Insummary the new regulation states the following:thePTA may be extended by the umpires as before– extra timecan be added.ifthe innings is not complete at the end of the PTA the remaining overs should be completedtheumpires must inform the captain of the fielding team the scheduled cessation time for the innings. This should be reiterated every time there is an interruption.
For matches that are NOT interrupted:umpireswould agree the timepiece to be used and advise the fielding captain before thematcheachumpire would note the start time of the innings on their match cardregularreminders/updateswould be provided to the fielding captain of the progress of the innings. You should take note of time added and when you have advised thecaptainifthe PTA elapses before the innings is complete the umpires will temporarily halt the match once the ball next becomes dead. THIS MAY BE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN OVER.Theywill consult and determine the penalty to be added to the score and whether that affects the result or not. Ifit causes a result to be reached the match will be over. They will advise the scorers BEFORE restarting play as to the penalty to beaddedbothumpires will note the actual finishing time of the innings on their match card

So for instance if a 24 over innings is due to finish at 1810 and at that time less than 23 overs have been bowled then the time has elapsed and the process outlined above must be adopted.bothumpires will note the actual finishing time of the innings on their match card

Interpretation of One Day Wide Regulation
LegsideAll deliveries directed and bowled down the leg side (behind the body of the striker, standing in a normal guard position) will be interpreted as a form of negative bowling and should be called wide.Forthe sake of clarity, a ball that passes down the leg side, but in between the striker and the leg stump, is not to be called wide since the striker hashad areasonable opportunity to play at the ball.Aball that just misses the leg stump is not deemed to be negative bowling and should not be called wide when the batsman moves across to the off stump from his original stance. Had the batsman not moved towards the offside but remained in a normal guard position the ball would have struck him, thereby negating any wide call.

Interpretation of One Day Wide Regulation
OffsideAny delivery that passes outside the wide guideline, with the batsman in a normal guard position, should be called wide.Forclarity:If the batsman brings the ball sufficiently within his reach and the ball passes outside the wide guideline on the offside then it is not a wide. For example, a batsman moving to the off side as the bowler bowls, could bring the ball within his reach even though the ball passes outside the wide guideline on the offside of the wicket, and if he fails to make contact with the ball, the delivery will not be called a wide.Inextreme cases where the bowler delivers a ball and it passes wide of the return crease, then regardless of the movement of the striker and even if he brings the ball within reach, if no contact is made with the ball, then this delivery shall be called wide.

Interpretation of One Day Wide Regulation
Wideinterpretation for the reverse sweep or switch hitTheinterpretation to be followed for calling a wide when a switch hit or reverse sweep is played or the batsman gets in a position to play the shot and then aborts it, is asfollows:Fromthe moment the ball ceases to be dead, whenever a batsman has changed his grip and/or his stance (or feinted to do so) or has attempted a reverse sweep or switch hit, then he loses the tight definition of the leg-side wide and the wide guidelines are employed on both sides of the wicket, not just the off-side.
