Laws of Cricket

Cricket has 42 laws and they have been revised subsequently over the years. The latest revision took place in 2010 where a number of changes took place. The Laws of Cricket are governed by MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club).

Although, the International Cricket Club (ICC) is the governing body MCC is still relied upon to interpret the Laws of Cricket which are applicable from the village green to the Test Arena.

On 1st October 2010, a new edition to the Laws of Cricket came out which is known as the 4th edition, 2010. This section focuses on the laws of cricket and each law has been explained in detail. The laws are explained in detail in the section aside and wherever possible visual guides are used to explain the laws better.
