View Full Version : New ODI rule change recommendations - Bangladeshi View

Basically, no more bowling powerplay: will help Bangladesh slightly since we're not too good at utilizing powerplays yet.

4 players max outside the 30 yard circle (reduced from 5) - I think this will help Bangladesh. Our younger players are more energetic and will be able to cover the outfield better than most other teams. Also, it will force us to set more attacking fielding, which we lack to gut to do it ourselves time to time.

2 bouncers in a over - BAD, BAD news for us. All the outs from hook and pull are about to be doubled. and all the ducking to allow dot balls also will double.

Last can be, however, be a blessing in disguise. If this forces us to learn how to play bouncers well, it will translate to better test performances.

Two bouncers in over would kill us..forget other team's fast bowlers..sarapova alone will kill our chances..i hope this rule will close the door for Srk in the odi team

Liked the proposals specially cancelling batting power play where we always suck. I think 2 bouncers rule will put all the batsmen in trouble not only Bangladeshi batsmen.

^^^Its not batting powerplay,its bowling powerplay that will be scrapped.

anyway, 1 PP will be reduced thats the thing. Now batting team can take PP anytime between 11 overs to 40 overs. So less pressure on us deciding when to take PP. :)

Dont like the decision of 4 players outside the circle instead of 5.

No comment on axing of bowling PP as its still in under experiment to find more attractive spectacle.
But outside circle fielder's number restrited to 4 from 5 aint good for strike/PP-specialist bowlers. TI should be happy here, but not Sakib.
2 leagal bouncers, could be very vital in close matches and not good news for sub-continental batsmen.
I highly appreciate-
to improve over-rates, it was recommended that drinks should not be brought onto the field other than at official drinks breaks and players should always assume a not-out decision following a review and be ready to immediately resume play after the decision is made.
These unofficial drinks breaks during "decision pending"-period of 3rd umpire breaks the momentum of the game, halts the spectrum literally, totally change the mindset of batmen tends to make more mistakes and really spoils a lot of valuable time limited to use for fielding captain also.
So from now on batsmen wont leave the pitch if a review is asked and cant take longer refreshment time (or not allowed at all) meanwhile.

2 bouncers in a over? Great now sharaprova will get go crazy with his 120 bouncers

I think reducing 5 man to 4 man outside circle will help Bangladesh and other teams as well. This is largely due to the fact that when we see more fielders inside the circle, wickets fall down as batsman tries to release the pressure of not getting single by hitting over the top. Good news for BD

Obayed bhai RBX ke abar?

Ask the inventor -> Sohel.

Ask him also about nostrilamous rex, Bijauy (with the au), and other similar strange concoctions.

Hope the operation went well. I wish and pray he will be totally fit to play soon. :)

1.2 bouncrs in a over means it will help only the pace bowlers.
2.2 bounces in an over will trouble our batsman.
3. 4 fielder outside the ring will decrease number of wicket of our spinners.
So i can see all the points going against us.But all the laws will help the batsman to adjust better with the test cricket.To me Odi is turning out to be a 50 over test cricket.

ODI rule should have remained the SAME! stupid decisions.

June 3, 2012, 02:02 AM
This is very bad for Bangladesh. I dont understand why they brought these rules into play, bowlers are doing better these days than they used to and matches are exciting. Doing this will mean more scores or 200-220 rather than 250-270

New ODI recommendations give some teams advantage – Mahela

First came the rule to have two balls per innings in ODI cricket and a year after that, the ICC Cricket Committee has recommended two bouncers per over in ODIs and Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene feels it puts some teams with better pace attacks at an advantage.

The new recommendations will be ratified by the ICC Board when they meet later this year, in Kuala Lumpur.

"In ODI cricket, a lot has changed in the last eight years. Various tactics have come in as various rules have come in and it is a challenge. We need to see if they make these recommendations permanent," Mahela Jayawardene told journalists, on Saturday.

Asked whether the new recommendations give an advantage to teams like Australia and England with the next World Cup scheduled to be held in Australia and New Zealand, the 35-year-old agreed.

"I think so. Naturally, with conditions and all that, that will be the case. But at the same time, we will have to prepare ourselves. We have got a decent pace attack and we have to tactically counter that. We are not thinking that far, but whoever is going to be part of the World Cup squad in three year’s time will prepare themselves for those types of conditions. The tour we had in Australia against two quality teams showed we are capable of doing that. We need to be much more consistent and authoritative in executing those game plans," Jayawardene added
