    The current World Cup format should be changed to that of the WCL.
    Every team meets twice, on the Home & Away format. Away team has the right to choose batting first or fielding first.

    Could you tell me the average numbers of maiden in an innings (20-over, 50-over, and First Class)?

    Thank you. So, how Cricket would change if a new law "maiden out" was introduced?

    1. Games would be over more quickly.

    There are no advantages to it.

    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.

    what was the source?
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    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?
