Default Cricket Should Be Played In Rain. Change My Mind.

I suppose the first thing that comes to mind is the pitch. But that gets quickly be covered up at the onset of heavy downpour. So then the reason why games get abandoned is because of wet grass on the field? Why can't the game be played with wet grass?

Boundaries will be harder to hit, but batsman can hit sixes, or really take a hard swing at it to push the ball past the ropes for 4s. And then can of course run the ones, twos and threes were possible.

Ball will get wet every time, but how long does it take to dry a god-damned ball, just one wipe will do it everytime. And even if it makes it harder to bowl, because of the danger of slipping on the fielder, or ball slipping out of hands, that will be part of the game. It's not like the bowlers can't bowl. Will just have to do it in a more measured approach. Plus, the extra moisture on the pitch will aid them and balance things out.

It will be interesting to see a battle between bat and ball in rain. They don't abandon games during rain in soccer, why should they do it in cricket?
The end of Rahim will mark a new great beginning for the complacency free Bangladesh!

This was a normal thing during the rainy season in Guyana.

We used to play everywhere. In the field, in the streets, on the public roads, even on a bridge.

Not a bad thought .. unless active persistent rain it's should be played. You need high visibility in cricket unlike soccer . U have a small hard ball coming at you at 95 miles per hour . U can also have beamer . So that good visibility is a must ..that's a deadly problem i see.

They also cancel baseball if it's tod persistent rain . But not like cricket where a little pee and everything is stopped.
Life is short. Have an affair.

Interesting thread. But hamstring injury to prevent no ball from run up is no joke.
