The International Cricket Council said the decision was ‘founded in science’ and made to protect ‘the integrity of the women’s game.’

(LifeSiteNews) — The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board is now restricting male players who claim to be female from competing against women.

On November 21, the ICC Board approved new gender eligibility regulations which mandate that biological male players who have been through puberty not be permitted to play against women.

“The new policy is based on the following principles (in order of priority), protection of the integrity of the women’s game, safety, fairness and inclusion, and this means any Male to Female participants who have been through any form of male puberty will not be eligible to participate in the international women’s game regardless of any surgery or gender reassignment treatment they may have undertaken,” a statement from ICC reads.
