T20 World Cup 2024 will use a stop clock

T20 World Cup 2024 will use a stop clock. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced dramatic changes that will see international limited-overs tournaments, including ODIs and Twenty20s, starting with the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup in 2024.

Following the introduction of a full test period last year, which saw the use of stopwatches in men’s limited-overs matches, the ICC has decided to make it a mandatory sport for all full-member ODIs and Twenty20s from June 1, 2024, onwards. 

The fielding team will receive two warnings for breaking the 60-second regulation, and the third infraction will result in a five-run penalty. Terms like “curing an injury” and “another batsman returning to the wicket” are included in the rule.

In terms of tournament requirements, teams playing in the group stage and Super Eights must bowl at least five overs to tie the game, while the knockout tournament requires a minimum of over 10 in the second innings.

Looking ahead, the ICC has announced the qualifying criteria for the Twenty20 World Cup 2026, which sees India and Sri Lanka co-host. The top eight teams from the 2024 edition will be awarded automatic qualification, with additional places allocated to the next top-ranked sides according to the ICC Men’s T20I rankings.

These changes mark an important step towards increasing the efficiency and competitiveness of international minimum cricket, ensuring a smooth and structured tournament experience for players and fans alike.
