Cricket administrators globally are grappling with the issue of controlling slow over-rates, and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has stepped forward to tackle this concern head-on. In a bid to prevent time wastage and create a sense of urgency for teams to adhere to the stipulated 85-minute timeframe for bowling 20 overs, the organisers of the CPL T20 have introduced a series of six in-game penalties. These penalties will come into effect post the 17th over. Furthermore, the overrate status will be communicated to players, spectators, and viewers at the conclusion of each over, ensuring transparency and accountability. These new regulations will also be extended to the women’s tournament starting on 31st August.
