Default Did Follow on rules ever change?

Check this scorecard

BD was down 160 runs after our first innings but we still had to follow on. But is int the follow on target supposed to be enforced when a team is down by 200 runs?

So it leads me to the question Did Follow on rules ever change? If so when?

follow on rule didn't changed:

5 day match 200 runs
4 and 3 day match 150 runs
2 day match 100 runs
1 day match 75 runs.

In that test the first day was washed out if I remember correctly. Hense the 150 rule applied.

Follow-on

eventhough the first day is washed out, isn't it still a five day game? I mean doesn't matter how many days washed out, the rule should remain same I think. Not sure though.

For the purpose of follow on, it is considered a four day game.

So what happens if :

instead of 1st day, the 2nd day is washed out. Still it will be considered as a a four day game for follow-on purpose?

No, this applies only for the first day being washed out.


Quote:
3. First day’s play lost
If no play takes place on the first day of a match of more than one day's duration, 1 above shall apply in accordance with the number of days remaining from the actual start of the match. The day on which play first commences shall count as a whole day for this purpose, irrespective of the time at which play starts.
Play will have taken place as soon as, after the call of Play, the first over has started. See Law 22.2 (Start of an over).
Law 13 (The follow - on)
