A new provisional rule is to be instigated in the 2017/18 season with a view to being made permanent next season. This is to prevent any player having the opportunity of illegally swapping bats during a set.
The provisional rule is:
At the end of each completed end in a match all players shall leave their bats on the table if they move away from the table for a drink, towel down etc.
