The decision comes at a time when umpires have been criticized for missing no-balls because of the ability to review decisions if a wicket falls.

The third umpire would monitor the front foot landing position after each ball and communicate to the on-field umpire if the delivery was a no ball.

On- area umpires have actually been advised not to call any kind of front-foot no rounds unless encouraged to do so by the off-field authorities.

Speaking about the association, Mr. Manpreet Bindra, Brand Leader, FCM MICE said, "ICC T20 World Cup is one of the most anticipated sporting events in India which offers us vast opportunities to reach out to a wider audience and establish a deeper connect with consumers".

The technology was recently trialled across 12 games, during which 4717 balls were bowled and 13 no balls (0.28 per cent of deliveries) were called.

"It is not hard for the referees to call the balls accurately, and although the percentage of deliveries that are not balls is low, it is important to call them correctly".

Allardice said the technology has been cost-effective and hasn't impacted the pace of the game either.

"Youth and experience form a ideal blend in our ICC Women's T20 World Cup squad and I can not wait to see how they do in the upcoming tournament", Bismah wrote in an exclusive column for ICC.

England's bowlers - who were particularly impressive against Australia on Sunday despite defeat - were efficient in restricting Cricket Australia to 130-6. It was later shown that umpires had missed 21 no balls in just two sessions.

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has been a long-time advocate for a greater focus on no-balls.

"I spoke to them on one of the days, just really quickly because I was watching the telecast in the changeroom", he said before the second Test in Perth. For mine that's not good enough, it's part of umpiring and part of what comes with the job.

A 3rd umpire can over-rule a choice made by on-field umpires in instances where video clip proof effectively revealed that a bowler had actually over-stepped. "It's an epidemic around the world at the moment".
