Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris is critical about MCC’s new rule of banning big heavyweight bats to ‘address the balance between bat and ball’ in the game. The new permitted dimensions of a cricket bat will be 108mm width 67mm in depth and the edges will 40mm. MCC have suggested some changes in law about Mankading, Penalties and Send offs to be introduced in October.

A bat gauge will be used to ensure the new limits are applicable in professional cricket.

With Scott Styris, English commentator David Lloyd “Bumble” is also not pleased with this decision and said on twitter that boundaries getting smaller is one of a concern too.

The changes in the rules came into picture when MCC’s world cricket committee consisting Sourav Ganguly, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting and Rod Marsh recommended in July last year in 2016.
