Hence ICC ensuring flat pitches/heavy bats to keep batters in a game heavily tilted towards bowlers.

You want bat/ball balance? Ok how about this? Every batsman should get 3 chances before they can be ruled out for the entire match. Similarly, a bowler get hit for 10 boundaries cant bowl anymore in the match. Now that is called balancing the game.

OPs suggestion of bat/ball balance by allowing bowlers to bowl non-stop but batsmen should get only one chance is hilarious.
See folks, this is what happens when you watch too much IPL tamasha. You start talking out of your a$$ and saying things like cricket is all but a bowlers game.

I'm sure anything less than four 6s an over is too much of a bowlers game for fans of bombastic hungama IPL.
