New Cricket Laws — “Laws Of Cricket 2017 Code” — Came Into Play, September 28, 2017.

by Anura Guruge


To read this MCC provided summary as PDF, click image to go the Lord’s website.


To download the “2017 Code” as a PDF — click image. I had to create this PDF since the MCC download, at least for now, is as a Word document! OK? Got that? This is a PDF I created from the MCC original.


A brief introduction to the new Laws by the MCC. Click image to access official document.


Click for the cricinfo summary of the new laws.


These new laws, the “Laws of Cricket 2017 Code” came into effect September 28, 2017 — the day that two Test matches started: Pakistan v Sri Lanka & South Africa v Bangladesh.

To be honest I just found out about them while watching highlights of those matches. I had heard about some of these proposed Laws BUT had not realized that they had been approved and were coming into play in September 2017.

  • Limiting the thickness of a bat’s edge to 1.58″ is interesting — along with ensuring that it cannot be more than 2.6″ thick at any point.
    I still have the last bat that I bought, c. 1983 (so it is ~34 years old). It is a ‘Duncan Fearnley’ (which has tried up a tad over the decades). I measured the edge, 0.75″. Thickness, 1.5″! Wow.
  • Tethering the bails to the wicket could be interesting. I am not really sure that there ever was a desperate need for this. We will see.
  • Wow! Players can be sent off for misconduct! Wonder who will be the first to get sent off.
  • DRS rules changed. “Umpire’s Call” will not result in a loss of a review, BUT in Test matches the reviews are NOT RESET back to 2 each after 80-overs! Pakistan, already on Day 1, lost both their reviews.

Interesting stuff.

Of course it is available directly from the Vatican.

But, if you rather just get it , or read it here, here it is.

Original, English translation, as provided by the Vatican Press.

1.05 MB Adobe Acrobat PDF. Safe
— or at least the PDF is clean and safe.

Note that the Pope would NOT have written this in English!
He doesn’t speak English.

He speaks Portuguese and Italian. This was most likely written in Italian — the translated to Latin.

English translations etc. came from the Italian/Latin.

Per Vatican norm the document gets its name from the first few words of the document, in Latin, in this case "Evangelii Gaudium" (The Joy of the Gospel).

This had to do with the availability of a document that should have been available for the public to see.

I got up, earlier in the meeting, and raised a ‘Point of Order‘ on it.

I was told by Superintendent Lander that a printed copy of the document was made available with the other papers, e.g., agenda and minutes.

The document was not there.

So having patiently waited till I was again permitted to speak, at the 2nd ‘public input’ slot, I question Lander as to where the document is or was.

Well you can, IF you have bionic hearing, since ACS appears to have doctored the sound, hear Lander say something along the lines of “I don’t know”!

That is great.

You can see that I was not amused. This, the ‘Breaking Glass‘ meeting, was FAR from funny. Probably one of the saddest and most disturbing public meetings I have ever attended. This day should go down in infamy as a very sad day for Alton.



Deanna has already contacted SAU about the UNACCEPTABLE sound on this video
— a VERY important one that every resident in Alton should watch.
