    How about every dot ball the batsman has to go down a bat size? Start with long handle, then short handle and by the 6th ball of a possible maiden he Is using a 4 or a 3?

    And if so, what if this is the second innings of an ODI? Think sensibly now Sledger, all the other suggestions in this thread have been so well thought out and are logical.

    Or bowl again. Or field. He is out of the match altogether.

    That might provide an interesting game, shouldn't be called cricket though

    Would be better if they had to go up a bat size, and wear big foam fingers instead of gloves.

    If he does it again in the next game he could have his hand chopped off

    What if we say that the non striker has to carry all the different sizes and if he drops one while running then there are 5 penalty runs?

    No no, if he does it again, he has to go and play for India.

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

    Instead of reviewing decisions they thing are wrong they should have to review decisions they agree with. If they review it and its wrong then the decision is overturned and all players on that team have to bowl and bat left handed - even if they are left handed, this encouraging teams to pick more lefties and encourage equality. If they review it and its right they get to select one of their own players as umpire until the next correct review from either side.

    Any decision they don't review results in a five match ban for the umpire on the basis using the technology would be unfair as it is unreliable.

    Thoughts?

    Test uniform

    I have a question about the Laws in Tests.
    Why coloured uniforms are not allowed? Coloured uniforms will expand fans.
    And why is declaration not suspension? I mean, if a side abandoned batting and later the opponent team scored more, the declared side should be given chance to bat again.

    And why are Cricket uniforms long-legs, unlike Football or Rugby?
    And in Women's Cricket, I think uniforms like Women's Hockey, Women's Tennis, Women's Netball would be better.
