The front foot no-ball technology will be used during the Pakistan-England Test series, which is all set to begin today (Wednesday) in Manchester.
The third umpire will be monitoring the front foot landing position and after each ball he will communicate with the on-field umpire if the delivery is legal or no ball.
The on-field umpires have been instructed not to call any front foot no balls unless advised to do so by the third umpire, although they will be responsible for calling all other types of no-ball on the field.
“Front foot no-ball technology to be used in ICC World Test Championship series featuring England and Pakistan, with the support of both teams. Performance of the technology in these Tests will be reviewed before any decisions taken on its future use in Test cricket,” the ICC said in a tweet on Wednesday.
