ICC Panel led by Kumble calls for clampdown on bat size

India’s Anil Kumble and several other former Test players on an International Cricket Council committee have urged the sport’s law-makers to bring in new restrictions on the size of bats admid concerns over a glut of run-scoring.

Following a two-day meeting at Lord’s, the headquarters of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the ICC cricket committee chaired by Kumble issued a statement saying it wanted MCC, which still has overall global responsibility for cricket’s Laws or rules, to instigate a clampdown.

While there are limitations on bat length (when the lower portion of the handle is inserted it shall not be more than 38in/96.5cm) and width (4.25in/10.8cm at its widest part), none currently exist on depth.
