The MCC cricket Committee has NOW recommended the following change to  Bat edges and depth: “The width of the edge of the bat could be restricted to a maximum of 40mm, and the depth to a maximum of 67mm from October 1, 2017, if the committee’s recommendations are approved.”

“Whilst not wishing to turn the clocks back too far, the committee, together with the Club’s Cricket committee – which met last week at Lord’s – wants to draw a line in the sand and target mis-hits that are clearing the boundary ropes for six,” the committee said. “Many of the top players’ bats have edges of between 38mm and 42mm, but there are some which have edges of up to 50mm, which was felt to be excessive and in need of restriction.”
