In T20 World Cup 2024, a match was played between England and Namibia on Saturday night. In this rain-interrupted 10-10 overs match, England won by 41 runs. In this match, England batted first and scored 122 runs for the loss of five wickets in 10 overs. In response, the Namibian team could only score 84 runs for the loss of three wickets. In this way, under the Duckworth Lewis rule, England won this match by 41 runs. In this match, Namibia's star batsman Nicholas Devin retired out. This is the first time in the history of the T20 World Cup that a batsman has been out like this. Let's know what is this rule for retiring out?

Namibia, led by Michael Lingen, got off to a solid start in chasing a target of 123 runs in 10 overs. At the same time, Nicholas Devin struggled to bat at the other end. Devin was in the sixth over, having scored 18 runs off 16 balls. He made the decision to retire at this point. Following that, David Wiese entered the crease in his stead. This is the first time a player in the T20 World Cup has retired.

In fact, according to MCC rule 25.4.3, if a batsman departs the pitch for any reason other than 25.4.2 (sickness, injury, or any other unavoidable reason), he can only return to bat if the opposition captain authorizes him to do so. If he is unable to start the innings again, then that batsman is considered retired. On the other hand, when the umpire gives a retired hurt to a player, he can bat again. For this, he does not need the consent of the opposition captain.
