International Cricket Council (ICC) is going to change the Cricket rules soon. Maybe you are trapped in our prank or maybe we are trapped in there, only they know!
Today, on April fools days they posted a series of tweets about the new rules which will come into effect this year in July, with the start of World Test Championship.
From replacing the old coin toss with the Twitter poll to decide who gets to do what first to having Instagram username on the jersey, all these rules sound like the new millennial rules, in order to attract more youngsters to the game.
For making the Test matches more exciting and entertaining, ICC made changes to the game and tweeted:
"As part of our efforts to make the game more appealing to younger generations, the ICC will be applying for both numbers and Instagram handles to kits from the beginning of the World Test Championship," ICC announced on its Twitter account with a hashtag #CricketNotAsYouKnowIt.

ICC, are you sure you did it for real? What are we feeling trippy after reading these new rules?
Now, I hope, the next tweet will not be "April Fool Banaya".
