    I read a bit of it. But the thing, will there be a market for it? I mean, the twenty20 stuff has been a success. They already having problems fitting that into schedules. Do they really need another cricket format?

    it's not another format or game. It is the new system that a 50 over match will be played.

    Good idea perhaps show it to the ICC. I think the current one day cricket is getting boring and very predictable in most occasions. I think a change will be good, but don't replace it with twenty20 cricket. I want to sit on my bum for 9 hours and watch cricket.

    I can't see it working - splitting an innings in a one innings match makes no sense and will only serve to confuse.

    The more innovations you bring in the less something becomes credible as cricket.

    I never fail to be astounded whenever I hear this.
    Am I imagining this notion of ODIs being sell-outs or close-to almost every game, then?

    i'm assuming you read about as much as the title.

    furthermore I spent over 3 months analysing games and the way an odi is played, basically i worked out the game rely's on the end point for excitement and climax this end point is approx 30 minutes long (last 10 overs) and on most occasions 5 and half hours away from the first ball bowled. a test match has 2 end points, all i did was reduce a test match formular to fit into an odi structure also finding a way to implement the follow on rule.

    My game creates end points by deviding the game up into smaller segments which are goverend by the fall of the 3rd and 6th wicket (a true simurality to test cricket which is the 2nd and 4th innings).

    but if you had read my web page you would know this and wouldnt make flakey statements that are based on what a spectator can handel.

    Well, I wasn't actually refering to other people's idea, but how I felt about the one day game.

    That only serves to make the whole game disjointed and unstructured.

    It will also make the game much harder for batsmen, continually having to start an innings over.

    It won't work.

    Well OK.
    I'm just really surprised anyone can find 50-over cricket boring.

    Yep - and plenty do still argue that 50-over (or 60-over as then) cricket is less credible than the First-Class game. Personally I just argue that they're two different games which share some similarities and are equally credible.
    However I do think we are in danger of going too far in the innovations in 50-over cricket - two sets of field-restrictions are fine (indeed I'd argue that the 15-50-over ones are neccessary), slightly shorter boundaries than in First-Class cricket are acceptible, but once you start messing-around too much it goes over the line.
