According to Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, bowling teams with a slow-over rate will play with 1 less fielder outside the 30 yards for the remaining innings. Playing without one fielder is the penalty for the slow-over rate. The entire fielding team needs to be in the position while bowling the first ball of the final over in the scheduled time, i.e., 90 minutes. If the team fails to do so, there will be 1 less fielder outside the 30 yards for the remainder.

ICC stated, "The over rate regulations are captured in clause 13.8 of the playing conditions, which stipulate that a fielding side must be in position to bowl the first ball of the final over of the innings by the scheduled or rescheduled time for the end of the innings."

The first match that will play under the new cricket rule is South Africa vs West Indies women's T20I match. This will be the first match of the 3-match series. Centurion will host the match on 18 January
