The ICC have approved new gender eligibility regulations whereby any male or female participant who have been through any form of male puberty will not be allowed participate in the international women’s game.

ICC chief executive Geoff Allardice said: “The changes to the gender eligibility regulations resulted from an extensive consultation process and is founded in science and aligned with the core principles developed during the review.

“Inclusivity is incredibly important to us as a sport, but our priority was to protect the integrity of the international women’s game and the safety of players.”

The review, which was led by the ICC Medical Advisory Committee chaired by Dr Peter Harcourt, relates solely to gender eligibility for international women’s cricket, while gender eligibility at domestic level is a matter for each individual member board, which may be impacted by local legislation.

The regulations will be reviewed within two years.
