• use of a wind meter for ODIs and international Twenty20 matches

At any time that the wind velocity exceeds two meters per second, the value of a six as defined in Law 19.4 shall be amended to five if struck with the wind and seven if struck into the wind.

• introduction of weighted averages for bowling

It is evident that the significance of the dismissal of higher-order batsmen is considerably greater than that of tailenders, but the traditional manner of calculating bowling averages takes no account of this. This is clearly unsatisfactory, and it is therefore proposed to introduce an improved system. One possibility would be to multiply each wicket by the current batting average of the batsman dismissed, but in the interests of simplicity and transparency it would be preferable to make use of the weightings already established for the resource tables for the Duckworth/Lewis system for calculating the result of rain-interrupted one-day matches. Consideration should in due course be given to a similar weighting system for batting averages. Such measures would make batting and bowling averages almost as informative as the ratings tables we have introduced in recent years.

I don't like this two law.

It will just ruin the fun of cricket.
