There has been new changes for ODIs. This will be affective from Oct 1st, 2007.

The major changes are
1) Free hit after a forward foot no ball.
2) Mandatory ball change after 35 overs. Replaced by a clean used ball.
3) Field size expanding.
4) An additional fielder would be allowed to be outside of the circle for the 2nd and 3rd powerplay.

With this free hit stuff, will it not slow the game down? Bowlers like Taposh, Abdur Razzak, Enam Jr. will have a hard time dealing with this rule. I for one do not like the idea. If you want to penalize the bowlers for aggression then just give away two runs instead of one for each no ball. All international bowlers must develop toe crushing yorkers to negate the free hit.

What do you guys think of the changes? Would our domestic system make changes this coming season?

3) Field size expanding.


Commented on the free hitting in some other thread, but my question is, the size of the cricket field varies worldwide, right? i see (or hear commentators saying) this is a smaller/larger ground and hence easier/harder for boundaries & over boundaries. Shouldnt there be more stringent specification on that?

From the link:
"Minimum boundary sizes in all international matches will be increased with the square boundary measuring at least 150 yards from one side of the ground to the other (minimum 65 yards on one side; previous total minimum size was 140 yards); and the straight boundaries 70 yards at both ends (previous minimum was 65 yards); maximum boundaries to be used allowing for three yards between boundary rope and advertising boards up to a maximum of 90 yards from the centre of the pitch."

The Max is not mentioned here. Fields can be a bit larger than the required settings. By the way, I thought the rest of the world have moved to Metric system. Why this yard measurements?

The leftover of British colonialism.

If that were the case New Zealand would never be able to host a test. Ideally boundaries should be 80-90m from the centre of the wicket.

Stupid rule. It's already a batsman's game, they might as well just replace bowlers with a bowling machine...

I support all the rules except I would prefer 3 fielders outside the ring on the 3rd powerplay only. Free hit is introduced to add more fun I guess although bowlers will hate it.

IMO, hit and giggle rules like the free hit should be left to Twenty20, and perhaps domestic 50 over games to bring in crowds.

If the majority of people think ODI's are boring, then play less of them. Instead of meaningless 7 ODI series, play an extra Test match, and play 2 or 3 ODI's instead.

Instead of 2 Test, 3 ODI series, make it 3 Test and 2 ODI.

The ICC are obviously trying to kill ODI's. They want more Twenty20's, and more $$$$.
Won't they be in for a shock when the novelty of Twenty20 wears off.

ODI is boring because it is no more a contest between bat and ball but between two batting parties. Free hit; what is next? No men mid wicket and square leg.

antora93, if you feel strongly enough about it, it is probably worth sending it to them in writing. They are likely to take more notice of someone who takes the time to write them a letter than someone who just sends them a quick email.

You may even get a well constructed reply if you put it in writing. By email, it will probably just be "Thank you, we appreciate your concern, it has been forwarded to xxxxx".

What on earth is ICC doing??
Just cause of money they are ruining the whole game, Odi should stay as it is now and not change. ICC is messing around with the fans, the players, the future players and etc. This is just not what the game is supposed to be.
