In May 2009, the ICC Cricket Committee endorsed the view of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) that the switch-hit was an exciting shot which offered the bowlers a good chance of taking a wicket and thus one which should remain a legitimate part of the game.
Besides the legality of the switch-hit, a wide range of issues will be discussed during the two day meeting including Twenty20 strategy, the annual review of the Decision Review System (DRS) and the format of ODI cricket.
The committee will consider the role of Twenty20 cricket in the growth of the game in the developing cricket world, the volume of Twenty20 cricket, global ICC events and the proliferation of domestic leagues and the consequent impact on international cricket.
