    ICC looking at four 25-over innings in ODIs

    ITSTL....

    Could this be the boost that ODI's need? Or is it another gimmick that will fail?
    5-0

    Would prefer two 20 over innings instead.
    RIP Craigos

    No. Just no.

    If this happens, I'm definitely not watching any cricket except for Tests.

    best idea........ to be honest im surprised it wasn't the original odi format. up to that point we only had test cricket (2 innings) it seems so logical when you look at it in that context..

    Don't like this idea at all tbh. The whole excitement of ODIs comes from the fact that, as long as the run rate is under say 10 or 11 runs an over, either team can still win it. IMO this will just make one sided matches even more one sided.

    if there is one point that should be made clear re: 25 over splits is that teams WILL NOT HAVE 2 SETS OF 10 WICKETS. as a team you will still only have 10 wickets as per normal.. for those who complain about this new format will interrupt the batsmen and bowlers innings .. they have obviously forgotten that a test match has many interruptions ..lunch.. tea.. and end of play (5 days) many not out batsmen have had the innings interrupted throughout these points and have gone on to score plenty regardless... this argument does not wash...

    Stupid idea there is no need for the format to change too much it still sells tickets quite well.

    Yeah why is everyone thinking that it'll be 2 sets of 10 wickets??

    I like the idea, think it's more fair especially for matches effected by Duckworth Lewis. It also gives team management a chance to access the situation a little more and when your mrs says who's winning you can actually give an answer at the half way point of the match.

    When I played all my junior cricket in 40 degree plus temperature we used to play four 20 over innings and it worked well.

    PS - what is with all the similar ODI threads?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    So, we are going to have drawn ODIs in case of rain?

    the only point you need to use DL is when it rains in the final 25 over split.

    if it rains at the 1st split and you lose a total of 10 overs of play, you deduct 5 overs each from the current and next split, thus the game will be 20 - 20 - 25 - 25

    if it rains at the 2nd split and you lose 10 overs play you deduct 5 overs from the current and next split, thus 25 - 20 - 20 - 25

    if it rains at the 3rd split and you lose 10 overs play you deduct 5 overs from the current and next split. thus 25 - 25 -20 - 20

    ive made it seem simple.. but frankly.. because the game is evenly divided it gives you an option to deduct overs evenly across the splits.. regardless of when the weather turns bad.

    the only point i could see DL needing to be applied is if the weather turns bad in the final split.

    I really like the idea. Probably could reduce the need for Duckworth Lewis at all.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yeah the idea makes rain-affected games less complicated. I like it a lot.

    Hehe, I hadn't realised this. Voted no but your shouty point has actually moved me from thinking it is a totally crap idea to thinking that there may be some merit in it.

    I've got to say, Spinksy was first here.

    Twenty20 or ODI?
