    Powerplay rule change

    PowerPlay Overs (ODIs)
    The batting team will be permitted to choose when one of either the second or third PowerPlays takes place. It was also agreed that three fielders be permitted outside the field restriction areas during both the second and third PowerPlays. Previously the third fielder was allowed outside the circle during either the second or third PowerPlay. The idea behind the amendment is to offer greater opportunity for spinners to bowl with the safety net of more protection for spinners

    they did this in the ford ranger..but

    So this is a new rule change then? If so then it is a good one IMO.

    This is a good rule change IMO as the batsmen will also have to think about when to use it, as i imagine it would be the two out in the middle who make the decision and not always the captain. Although i can see it just being used at the end of an innings a lot, and when that happens it would be carnage in the last 5 overs. Although that would make a good watch it may become to predictable with teams only using it in the last 5 overs.

    I think this is a good move by the ICC although they have to make sure they don't make the game too batsmen friendly. They have to try and ensure the battle between ball and bat is an even one.

    Teams generally go for it in the final 5 overs, powerplay or not. I'd say most teams will do it between the 41st-45th overs or the 36th-40th overs.

    All this does is give more power to the batting side - and if a side has wickets in hand and chooses to use the power play within the final ten overs of the innings, I'd imagine we'll see some absolute carnage. Yet to be convinced it would be a positive change though.

    That's the idea of every rule pertaining to fielding restrictions as the powers that be assume that most fans want to see more and more runs being scored.

    Was always worried this crap was going to happen TBH.

    At least hopefully it might mean the idea is used more as it was designed - to give more variety to the time when the field-restrictions are in place.

    I still hope one day fielding captains might realise it's potentially to their advantage to do so too.

    More faffing

    I wish I got paid for every time I got to use the word faffing in relation to OD rule changes. The game changes its rules every 4 months. Its a joke

    If there's a big scary last-5-overs powerplay coming up at the end of an innings it gives the fielding side an incentive to try to bowl the batting team out. Which is important because the thing that can make ODIs so painful to watch is the 'singles down to third man' middle overs.
    Doubt it'll work though.

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

    Just leave it be as is. Why did they change this? It takes away from the game of ODI cricket and would make it more like a T20 slog fest at the end. Maybe it would be a good thing as in T20 cricket but does ODI cricket need to make it less challenging for the batsmen? One of the things is that batsmen have to play well to score aggressively in the last ten overs in this change just keep wickets in hand and blast it at the end.

    I swear I wake up every day and the ICC have done something stupid or something bad happens in cricket match.

    I fear this might make the middle overs even more tedious as the batsman know they can score at an even bigger rate during the last ten overs so they will be even more cautious in the middle.

    I liked the old PP of 15 overs though I thought then that they should allow up to 3 men out-side the circle and may be increase the PP to 100 balls [1/3 of 300 balls a side gets to face] from 90

    from the current rule, i would like the PP to be reduced to 18 overs from 20, with the 2nd and 3rd PP of 4 overs each and allow up to 3 men outside the circle at all times

    We should also give the batsmen 20m boundaries and steel bats.

    Or alternatively, the bowlers get rocket launchers.
