Reason for the changes
Law 39.3 (Not out Stumped) – in (a), the wording has been amended for more clarity; and in (b), a rewording has taken place to amend cross references of other amended Laws, as discussed under Law 2.8 (above) with the effect of a No ball on a would-be stumping when the striker has a runner and under Law 38.2 when he does not have a runner.
