    Possible Reasons for the Changes in Cricket in Recent Times...

    Global warming has reduced the amount of rain, hence there are more results.

    Your turn.

    Increased amounts of carbohydrates in players' diets has seen flatulence increase on the ground, hence why silly point and short leg are further away from the batsman than what they used to be.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Test wickets are flatter because the rollers are bigger.
    More Tests are played to take the emphasis off exams.

    Power plays have been inroduced by Sharad Powar's pawns in his grand scheme of things to take over cricket eventually.

    It's the female hormones in the meat & the water: with a few exceptions our milksop bowlers can't muster up a Lilleesque Zapata/chops combo nowadays.

    Ingestion of tartrazine at an early age has also given us a generation of hyperactive batsmen who don't have the patience to construct innings anymore and tee-off from the word go.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
