    By the way, I am not very familiar with the Laws. Please tell me about no-balls and wide-balls. In the case of too many no-balls/wide-balls, is there any punishment for that Bowler?


    Only in very extreme circumstances. 15 wides in an innings and the bowler has his eyes cut out and pinned to the sight screen. Hence the name.

    Hi all, a genuine query. We see all over the world that teams are too strong at home and weak away. Will not doing away with the toss and providing the option to bat or field first, to the visiting captain restore some balance?

    I am not saying everyone always wins at home and loses away. There is always few exceptions. But looking at the majority, thought that it will be better to restore some balance with that option to the visiting captain.

    No way. Home advantage is a good thing and winning key series away from home is huge thing and pretty awesome.

    In the Japanese version of the game the bowler starts from behind a hill and is required to run over it emitting a blood curdling scream before dropping the ball and cutting the batsman's head off with a samurai sword.

    Also, did you know the last ICC sanctioned test match in Japan, which was played at the Fukushima Cricket Ground, was called off after the pitch mutated into a giant grass monster!? Fact.

    Yeah and in India the bowler has to run around a coconut tree and try to serenade the batsmen with a coordinated bollywood dance along with all the fielders to get him out.

    And in Australia the bowler must deliver the ball while wearing thongs, without spilling a drop from the VB held in his left hand.

    One handed catch and the whole team is out always worth a go

    According to a Japanese Cricket staff, 8-ball over Cricket was mainly played in Oceania. Is that true?

    Read this for the dates for when we stopped using 8 ball overs by country - Over (cricket) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It should answer all your questions and in the unlikely event that you have more questions about this topic please do NOT ask them.
