    Pro35 Evolution : Cricket's Newest Format

    This is the suggestion for a new format.

    T20 is too short for atleast 2 batsmen to get centuries (which has happened a lot of times in ODIs) or a batsman to score 150+ in an innings and too short for a bowler to take 6-7 wickets whereas it takes 7.5 hours for an ODI (50 ovs) to end too boring.

    The solution of this problem is Pro35

    35 overs each team

    First 16 overs (out of it first 10 ovs of fielding restrictions (powerplay) & next six ovs of freeplay) (65 mins)

    Next 14 overs of spinplay (next 14 ovs of mandatory continous spin bowling) (43 mins)

    (Spin bowling will be defined as short run up bowling or a bowler given to the stats as a spin bowler but not medium pace)

    Last 5 overs of freeplay (no such restrictions as above) (22 mins)

    6 more overs of powerplay can be taken any time by batting & bowling sides each (3+3)


    7 overs each bowler

    Innings length : 2 hrs 10 mins

    Match length : 4hrs 35mins (including break)

    Change of ends per 17 overs.

    It will include the Super Sub rule & Free Hit.


    This format will help cricket as :

    • It will eliminate the slambam of T20 and boredom of 50 ovs .

    • It will make cricket more entertaining if 2 batsmen get centuries or a batman gets a 150+ score like 163* unlike 105 or 120 in T20s & a bowler gets 6-7 wickets.This will make the match statistics more substantial the word is subtance which T20 doesnt have at all.

    • The spinplay will help to fasten the overrate and thus less duration and more crowds and TV viewers.It will make cricket more strategic.It will help fasten the game & spice up the boring middle overs of an ODI & will give some respect to the artistry of spin bowling which is dying.

    • This format will help to create bigger individual performances and superstars and maintain a balance of cricket & statistics all over the world.

    Nice effort.

    I hate the idea of mandatory spin bowling. It scares me the idea of teams leaving out a quality pace-bowler due to requiring an extra spinner to meet the format of the game. Isn't one of the unique aspects of cricket the ability of teams to have a variety of bowling attacks. South Africa can take advantage of home wickets by selecting five seamers, Zimbabwe can compete by selecting 4 defensive spinners.

    It will give importance to spin bowling a team will have to go with at least 2 spinners there is enough space for 4 pacers to bowl atleast 5 ovs so there wll b balance

    Cricket is a complicated enough game without throwing in too many more stipulations.

    Why give importance to spin bowling? If a team only has 1 quality spinner, why force them into selecting someone else sub-par to fill the over quota.

    Imagine a fast Perth wicket and Australia being forced to select both Smith and Hauritz, leaving say Harris or Tait on the sideline. Horrible idea.

    Cricket at its core is a simple game, superficial rules alienate the fans.

    Especially as it's a rule solely designed for the purpose of bowling overs quickly.

    50 overs a side match is excellent for me, and definitely not boring. Don't want it to end, nor the 50 overs a side World Cups that come once in 4 years. All those 20, 35, 40 or 60 overs a side cricket matches aren't and won't be appreciated by me as much. Thanks and bye.

    I don't see much artistry in an average spin bowler sending down 90kmh+ darts.

    Respect will come through good spinners who demand selection on merit. Fans don't want to watch poor spin bowling.

    I said not boring for me, may I just add especially the middle overs....

    And besides my personal choice, the fact is that ODI cricket earns enough money to sustain itself, even now. [Though it doesn't earn enough money for someone like Lalit Modi to become rich within moments; but that's a different story.]
