In a T-20¬†match, a bowler delivers a fair delivery. The square leg umpire counts 6 fielders on leg side at the instant release of delivery and calls and signals ‘no bal’. As the batsmen didnt run, the field cant change, hence leaving 6 fielders on leg side for the free hit delivery, would the correct decision be to continue to call no ball until field can change or allow under special circumstances the fiejd to change due to this breach.

In these circumstances the field can be changed as the no ball was not a result of a bowler’s infringement.
