There are many rules in cricket that many people are not aware of. Its a timed out. Such an out was seen for the first time in the ongoing Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match in international cricket. Angelo Mathews is timed out for more than 3 minutes late in changing helmets. Discussion and criticism has already started on social media.

In the 38th match of the World Cup, the two teams met at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Monday. Where Sri Lanka lost the toss and batted first. The incident happened in the 25th over of the innings. Mathews was timed out before any ball was played. A first in international cricket.
Mathews did not feel safe in the helmet he was playing with. Later another new helmet was brought. That too had a bit of a problem. So Mathews wants to change the helmet again. But by then 3 minutes had passed. Shakib applied for time out. And the umpires gave out according to the rules.
It is mandatory to appeal to the umpire for all outs other than bowled or caught by the fielder. Currently, a batsman can be dismissed in 11 types of matchups. Let’s take a look at the types of exits—
Bowled: If a bowler hits the stumps directly, bat-foot or otherwise after delivery and the ball falls, then the batsman is bowled out.
Caught Out: If the ball is palmed by the batsman before the ball touches the ground with the batsman’s bat or gloves, it is caught out. It is also of three types — 1) Cut by the fielder, 2) Cut and bold and 3) Cut behind.
LBW: After the bowler’s delivery the ball hits the leg of the batsman without touching the bat, if the umpire considers that the stump is on the line then he can give this out.
Stumping: If the batsman leaves the crease before hitting the ball or if any part of the body does not touch the line, the wicketkeeper can catch the ball and blow the ball.
Run out: When a batsman runs from one end to another while taking a run and before reaching his crease, the ball of the wicket is dropped directly or palmed by a fielder, then he is run out.
Hit wicket: If a batsman hits the stumps with his bat or any part of his body while taking a run or while at the crease, he is out for a hit.
Obstructing the field: If the batsman deliberately obstructs the ball thrown by the fielder before it reaches the hands of the wicket-keeper, then this is an out.
Hit the Ball Twice: If a batsman hits a delivered ball twice, he will be out ‘hit the ball twice’. If the ball is struck a second time with the bat, foot or otherwise after the first hit, this is still an out.
Handled the Ball: If the batsman intentionally touches the ball without the touch of the bat and the consent of the opposing fielders, it is ‘handled the ball’ out.
Timed Out: After a batsman is dismissed, if the new batsman fails to enter the boundary line within the stipulated time, he will be timed out.
In this case, the batsman has to enter the boundary line within 180 seconds in Test, 120 seconds in ODI and 90 seconds in T20. It is not just about the batsmen reaching the crease, but he cannot waste time with helmet-bat or any other reason without the permission of the opponent and the umpire.
Retired Hart: If a batsman is injured and leaves the field without the consent of the umpire and he wishes to resume the innings without the consent of the opposing captain, that batsman is considered to be retired out.
