    Tactical retiring in T20

    With so few deliveries to play with, how long will it be before this tactic comes into play?

    Makes sense to me, teams need to utilise their batting finishers in the same way the fielding side uses bowling finishers. Plus its better to retire a guy and keep him in reserve than have him attempt to 'hit out or get out'.

    Surely a retirement wouldn't be allowed to bat again though?

    Yep they'd be done. But if you 2 down with 5 overs to go, and you got a guy batting struggling to land boundaries you'd think about it. assuming, of course, he just won't get out. And then comes in the more likely thing, dropping catches and what not when that struggling guy is in

    Even just getting out uses up a delivery, and every one should matter in these hypothetical situations.

    I didn't know there was a rule against retiring and coming out to bat again.

    I bet it will change at some point though. T20 is getting closer and closer to baseball.

    Been calling for this for years. It just makes sense, and not only for T20s. Sometimes necessary in ODIs.

    I remember Geoff Marsh (my favourite player at the time even though I modelled my backyard play on Terry Alderman) trying his best to get out once on about 80 (120) and it taking a while, before finally skying one to 3rd man. Was such a team player.

    I also remember scoring about 600 as Geoff Marsh vs the garage door. Garage door never much of a threat.

    Sounds like great strategy but it's not easy landing boundaries straight away for someone from ball 1 if the well settled one can't hit boundaries. But if players like Pollard, De Villiers are lined up then retirement should be a good strategy. Also 11 players allowed to bat for 20 overs doesn't make much sense though

    Furthermore, if bowlers are limited to allotted overs why not have the same for batsmen? Seems only fair IMO.

    Only if a bowler must be permanently removed from the attack whenever he bowls a no ball or gets hit for six.

    What if the team bowled 11 no-balls or conceded 11 sixes ?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    They would be required to bowl Ishant Sharma for the rest of the innings.

    How does that work? Do they just wait around while Ishant is flown in from wherever he is?
