    In fact, scratch that second item - given how prevalent PEDs are in baseball, why not advocate them for cricket! Bigger muscles, bigger hits! SIXSIXSIX
    Sorry I do not know Peter Fulton. However, I think that too slow bowling should be outlawed. And when a ball bounced twice, it should be no-ball. And too many no-balls and wide-balls must be punished (sorry I am not very familiar with the Laws around here).

    I advocate that the value of 6s should be increased to 8.

    Just what we need, more incentive for sloggers.

    Are we really listening to someone who doesn't know who Peter Fulton is?
    There are two colours in my head

    And maybe 1s should be increased to 2s, 2s to 3s, 4s to 7s and maybe even 6s to 12s?

    High scoring is always more exciting for the fans.

    Would have the effect of making some of the old batting records less impregnable - if you just double everything then give it 20 years and Bradman will be out of the top 10 and 99.94 will be ordinary

    Yes, yes! Great idea! Those who bowl too many no balls should be defenestrated. Again, I'm not to clear on the Laws in each cricket jurisdiction, but defenestration must be the solution to the scourge of no-balls.

    You would ban too slow bowling? There goes my comeback.

    Icon5 Uniforms of Test and Limited-Over Cricket

    Could you tell me why only white uniforms are allowed in Tests?

    I do not know the reason, but having white uniforms is not bad--when there is colour clash, the away side can wear white uniforms.
