    *'injured' also tends to refer to fast bowlers wanting a break, a change of boots, toilet break or other reason for leaving the field.
    I think that 3 subs (1 is wicketkeeper) should be allowed, including batting and bowling.

    And I saw the coaches were using Baseball gloves in fielding practice before the game. How do they get Baseball gloves in the countries where there is no Baseball? Internet shopping?
    I think introduction of Baseball gloves into Cricket would be considerable. It will make catching easier, and increase the number of outs.

    Many cricket shops sell baseball-style gloves marketed towards coaches.

    As for introducing gloves for all fielders - how would we continue to call americans wimps on internet, justifying cricket's superiority?

    Cricket's superiority is clear -- there is no advantage for left Batsmen, no intentional four-balls, etc.

    I need it explained to me why left handed hitters do better against right handed pitchers.

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

    It's the same the other way round. Lefties hit better against right handed pitching, righties hit left handed pitching better. Basically because the ball is pitched into them rather than across them, I guess. So it's kinda like a left arm quick coming round the wicket to a right handed batsman and bowling at the stumps - the angle makes it easier to hit to the leg side. In baseball it means the batter can pull the ball (think of a pull/draw/hook in golf) more easily.

    No I do not mean that. Left batters have clear advantage because left batters box is closer to the 1st base.

    Nah that's a myth. Any slight advantage they get is offset by the fact that their infield pulls go to 1st or 2nd base so the fielder has a shorter throw than for a right hander hitting it to 3rd baseman or shortstop.

    I think that my suggestion (point deduction by every out) is quite natural since over-limited games started.

    Nah don't worry about debating - you have to keep proposing new ideas at least once every three days.

    How about we make batsmen take a shot after every dot ball?

    If the bowler bowls a wide, he is given out.

    Do you mean he doesn't get a bat?
