    Interesting that they picked Ponting and Clarke to accompany the article, don't think over-rates have been a problem in Tests for Australia since they dropped Brett Lee. And, now he's back in the ODI side, over-rates are a problem again.

    Must be a coincidence.

    Some bowlers like Brent Arnel look like they are on a sunday stroll when they walk back to the top of their mark. I don't really see what you can do to speed up the over rates when the quicks are on. I almost have time to go the fridge and back between deliveries.

    I read that back in the day - they used to get through 20 overs an hour. Don't know how they did it.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    On the actual proposal at hand - delaying the new ball - I doubt that would have much impact. Sometimes a captain doesn't take it until the 82nd or 83rd over anyway.

    Just get strict with adding on penalty runs on every hour. 4 runs for every over that you havn't bowled.

    The easiest method I could think of is bowl two overs fom the same end.

    Need to look at the batsmen aswell. Trott holds up sides a great deal and most other players are guilty of waiting to do their preparation/have a drink until after the bowler is ready which could all be happening while he walks back to his run up and talks to his captain between balls. End up with double delays when they could both be doing their own thing in that time.

    Giant meh from me. It takes as long as it takes. Deliberate slowing tactics are different of course.

    The batsmen is as much as fault as the fielding team. but 9 out of 10 its the fielding team delaying or slowing down the game.


    I believe this only begins to occur when a team has already won a match in the series therefore its in the best interest of the team to maintain that lead, thus draws are as valid option as well.


    what we could do is apply a sort of bonus point (s) to the game. a point for every team 100 runs a half a point for a half century and a point for a century and a point for every wicket.

    I dont know something like that

    thats fair enough, but the issue is what if the full quota isnt achieved, the spectator and the fan are being short changed.

    soccer has extra time because of the time wasted during play. cricket needs to address the same issue.

    How often does that happen though? With the extra half hour, you're going to be missing two or three overs at most, hardly a massive loss.

    Oh instead of addessing the issue, lets give them an "extra half an hour" has this always been part of the game.

    seriously im not really sure

    And btw, it's only an issue because commentators whinge about it because it means they have to work longer hours.
