Gloves for umpires, temperature checks in ICC's new guidelines

May 23, 2020 11:06 IST

After a 2-month break due to the virus scare as countries look to ease restrictions, the International Cricket Council has come up with a list of guidelines to be followed by the cricketing fraternity. The measures introduced include the appointment of a chief medical officer who will take care of the government guidelines and a 14-day pre-match isolation training camp. ICC has stressed upon regular temperature checks and Covid-19 tests to ensure the teams are coronavirus free. ICC has also asked the umpires to use gloves while handling the ball.
