The <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc">International Cricket Council</a> (ICC) in its recently concluded board meeting in London has given its approval for the usage of technology to spot front-foot no balls. <p></p> <p></p>Replays will be used to instantly spot whether a bowler has overstepped or not with the third umpire constantly keeping a close eye on each delivery. <p></p> <p></p>The decision was reportedly taken after a <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/bcci">BCCI</a> request and it will be trialled for the first time in India, during its domestic season and could be extended to international matches to be hosted by the country. <p></p> <p></p>"The ICC will do the trials and some of the trials will also take place in India," an ICC official was quoted as saying by the Mumbai Mirror. <p></p> <p></p>Controversy erupted over front-foot no-ball during the Indian Premier League earlier this year. During a league match between Mumbai Indians Royal Challengers Bangalore, the on-field umpire failed to spot Lasith Malinga overstepping on what was to be the final delivery of the match and it proved decisive. <p></p> <p></p>RCB ended up at the wrong end of the decision with their captain Virat Kohli blasting the error during a post-match presentation. <p></p> <p></p>The reason why ICC has been hesitant to use the technology is because of the high cost involved which reportedly runs in tens of thousands of dollars for a day. This was considered too much as no-balls make up mere 0.5 percent of the deliveries. <p></p>If implemented, the third umpire will be constantly involved in a game keeping his eye on each delivery. The moment a bowler oversteps, the decision will be relayed to the on-field umpire.
