An off-field umpire will use technology to judge when bowlers illegally overstep the crease during the ICC women's Twenty20 World-Cup in Australia. The front-foot no-ball-technology was trailed in India and WI recently and will be used in a major-tournament for the first-time. The International-Cricket-Council says the third umpire will monitor the front foot landing position on each delivery during the Feb. 21-March 8 competition.
