    If you bowled the same number of balls with longer overs it would probably save time given there would be less breaks between overs

    I even made a domestic thread

    Could you tell me what "spose" means? I could not find this word in my dictionary.

    By the way, is 8-ball over a so strange idea? Cricket Laws clearly states that the number of balls of 1 over is 6 or 8.

    Actually they used to have 8 ball overs, I don't see a huge problem with it myself but I also don't see the need to change it from 6 balls. "spose" is simply short for "suppose"

    I thought that it was standardised by the powers that be as 6 in an over 10 or so years ago?

    I believe so, though about 30 years since the last 8 ball FC match?

    Look at the Laws of Cricket 22-1. 1 over is 6 or 8 balls.

    Didn't want to start a new thread on this, but thought someone might be able to answer this for me.

    On the weekend at cricket it was so windy that the heavy bails were continually blowing off. The umpire removed them and we played bail-less most of the arvo.

    In this situation, is it necessary to remove a stump to effect a run out? Or a stumping?

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

    A Question for Loko

    The batting side come to the last over needing 19 runs to win. During the over there are no no-balls, wides or otherthrows. The first four balls are dot balls. The fielders naturally think that they have won. During and after the fifth ball , again a dot ball, something happens that allows the batting side to win.

    How?
