According to the details, ICC has decided to implement new rules over front foot no ball decision. Now the decision will be made by third umpire.

On field umpires cannot give no-ball without confirmation from third umpire.
If under circumstances of not having video footage available, the decision will be made by on field umpires.
These new rules will be tested in the one day series between England and Pakistan according to ICC.
ICC umpires and referees manager Adrian Griffith has said that currently this new rule is under test phase.
After the test phase in ODI-series between Pakistan and England, the results will be forwarded to cricket council to make final decision of its implementation.

According to the details, new rules will be applicable from 1 August in the Ashes series between England and Australia.
