    The scoreline has nothing to do with how hard the ball is to hit when pitched.

    Cricket scores wouldn't be terribly high either if you forced a batsman to run every time he hit the ball.

    Seems nice.

    By the way, I watched international friendly games (Japan's Women team are now in tour in Britain). The games were 2 T20. Japan won 1 and lost 1.

    After seeing those games, I now consider that wide-ball should be more severe for bowlers.

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

    Number of outs in over-limited games

    I think that number of outs should be counted to the score.

    I think that that 170-9 is better than 169-0 is very strange. Isn't it possible to count the outs in the score? For example, point deduction by every out.

    You should've played u11 indoor cricket. Each batter had two overs, and lost five runs every time he was out. Was also hit and run, and one hand one bounce catches. Was fun to play.

    But real cricket is more enjoyable.

    I heard something similar about 8-player Cricket, from a Japanese Cricketter in Hong Kong.

    And today I attended Scotland-Essex game. I saw one thing I could not understand. That is a substitution of Essex fielder in the Scotland's batting time.

    If a fielder gets 'injured'* they are allowed a substitute, however the substitute can only field - they cannot bowl, and the original player bats in their innings.


    *'injured' also tends to refer to fast bowlers wanting a break, a change of boots, toilet break or other reason for leaving the field.

    I'd love to see T20s played with a different rule.

    Instead of 4 overs per bowler, every player on the fielding team must bowl 2 overs (except the wicketkeeper). Would be brilliant to watch how captains approached it tactically, and it would be interesting to see how much it impacts selections. Would also just be fun to see guys who don't normally bowl have a trundle.
