ICC allows IPL style strategic timeout for T20 WC

For the first time in an ICC men’s T20I tournament, the Decision Review System (DRS) will be in use. Each team will get a maximum of two reviews per innings.

The ICC has also decided to increase the minimum number of overs for delayed and rain-interrupted matches for the semi-finals and the final, and each team will need to bat for a minimum of 10 overs to effect a result. It will be the standard five-over game for other matches.

ICC has announced that there will be a drinks break similar to IPL’s strategic timeout, which will take place during each and every match. The duration of the break will be of two minutes and 30 seconds and will take place during the halfway mark of each innings.
