    1. Games would be over more quickly.
    2. The game would be ****ter.

    There are no advantages to it.
    I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think its the effect or vice versa.

    Bowlers would change approach to concentrate on run containment at the expense of planning wicket taking plays.
    Batsmen would adapt and dilute the principle of playing the ball on its merit.
    In-ring fielders would gain more prominence.
    Slips would be in danger of becoming extinct.
    Test cricket would be in danger of resembling the boring middle overs of ODI cricket.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I agree - it wouldn't be good for the game. Wickets are exciting - much more so than maidens. You might find batsmen going for more risky runs on the basis that they either hit out or get out, but that's likely to end in run-outs which IMO are the most terrible of wickets. My biggest fear would be the reduction in risk taking by the bowlers.

    Am I the only person who thinks an average of only 3.5 maidens an innings in FC is somewhat surprising?

    I would be very surprised if it was true, to be honest.

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

    OK, I understand your point.

    Your 1st point: Bowlers would change approach to concentrate on run containment at the expense of planning wicket taking plays.

    Is it possible to avoid this by making wide-ball more strict?

    Test cricket would be in danger of resembling the boring middle overs of ODI cricket.

    So what do you think about my suggestion of changing 50-over game to 2 20-over innings game?

    No one is going to seriously answer this Loko - you have asked these questions already ten times. If you have some new ideas post them - if not then don't recycle the same stuff.

    I think I've said this before, but it would not bother me in the slightest if the maiden rule was in place in T20 matches. In fact, I'll go a step further and say that I would enjoy the rule.

    On the rare occasion when I've been able to have a maiden during a T20, I've really enjoyed it. Really, REALLY enjoyed it.

    I think I was 9 when I figured out why they called it a "maiden" over and I was highly amused.

    Limited-Over games -- 1 over 6 balls
    First Class games -- 1 over 8 balls

    What do you think about this change?

    Perhaps if you think there should be a change, you could provide at least one reason of why you think it's a good idea. Then people might engage in conversation more.

    So, lokomotiv, what do you think of returning to 8 ball overs for FC games?
