Powerless to prevent the use of roundarm, MCC in the 1835 English cricket season finally amended the Laws of Cricket to make it legal.

The relevant part of the Law stated: if the hand be above the shoulder in the delivery, the umpire must call "No Ball". Bowlers’ hands now started to go above the shoulder and the 1835 Law had to be reinforced in 1845 by removing benefit of the doubt from the bowler in the matter of his hand’s height when delivering the ball.

The Laws were also changed to enforce a compulsory follow on if 100 runs behind on first innings.
