Laws, Umpiring and Scoring
Laws of Cricket 2017 Code
A new Code of the Laws of Cricket has been drafted and approved by the M.C.C. Committee. The Code, to be titled Laws of Cricket 2017 Code came into force on 1st October 2017.
Summary of changes
The last time that a new Code of Laws was written was in 2000. With the way the game has evolved since then, there have been 6 Editions of that Code, with changes made in 2003, 2008, 2010, 2013 and 2015. It was felt that the time was right for a new Code of Laws, providing a chance to review all the Laws, to make some significant alterations and to tidy up many of the piecemeal changes made since 2000.
