POWER PLAY - Is it time to get rid of it?
This last World Cup was the first one that used Power Play. IMO Power Play gives the Toss winning Captain an even greater advantage than it already was. It has made ODIs more lopsided than it used to be. Teams chasing had a chance without Power plays , but with Power plays the disadvantage to the chasing Team is huge.
Is it time to get rid of the Power play ( by which I mean the extra 5 overs) and go back to what it used to be ? [with a proviso that the Captain can choose when he wants to take the Power Play 2 (the 5 overs that follow the first 10 overs of field restriction) ]
I would like your views ...
