    How would fewer breaks between overs reduce draws or declarations?
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Fewer breaks would reduce game time.

    Bowling from one end instead of changing each over would help with changeover times also. Do you like that idea?

    No, that would not reduce the changeover times, because bowler changes by every over anyway. And changing the direction of bowling is the core of Cricket, so it cannot be changed.

    Definitely not. Non-flat ground cannot be used for other games. And that would fundamentally change the bowling.

    If the game time is shorter, naturally the number of draws and declarations would be reduced.

    So you don't think any of your other ideas (baseball bats, must run after 3 dot balls) are the core of cricket? Your reasoning to bowl 8 balls to reduce draws and declarations is completely flawed. If the overs are 8 balls per day, officials aren't going to make it 90 overs per day. It will be reduced to 540/90 = 67.5 So 68 overs a day or perhaps 70.

    Please do not misunderstand. I wanted to see an exhibition game in which Baseball bats and gloves are used, and did not suggest the change of Cricket.
    "must run after 3 dot balls" is an interesting ideas to reduce the game time. But, it seems too big change. I think that "maiden out" is more realistic.

    The number of overs can be increased to more than 70, if the changeover times are fewer.

    Loko - would you support Peter Fulton being permanently banned from cricket for batting too slowly? Its a scourge of the modern game of a similar magnitude to match fixing and performance enhancing drugs.

    In fact, scratch that second item - given how prevalent PEDs are in baseball, why not advocate them for cricket! Bigger muscles, bigger hits! SIXSIXSIX
