The rules and regulations of cricket are encoded in the Laws of Cricket by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in consultation with the International Cricket Council (ICC). MCC have been the custodians of the Laws since Friday, 30 May 1788 and hold full copyright. The code is known to have existed since 1744, though it was never actually printed until 1755. It underwent a significant revision in 1774. Following the 2017 revision of the code, there are 42 Laws headed by a preamble on the "Spirit of Cricket".[1]
