    To make it bowler friendly or the way ODI is played 3 things can be done 1) no restriction on bouncers 2) Looking at the CT there is a clear difference between the pitches prepared for Test(more bowler friendly) and for ODIs..So the suggestion make pitches which has something in it for the bowlers then watch the batsman 3) Don't listen to the TV people..one of the main reason why ODIs or for that matter every form has become batting friendly is TV..TV likes match to go the distance , lots of runs etc..

    You're right about TV people, I can't count the number of times they say a very flat pitch is a "good pitch", even though the contest is clearly not even between bat and ball.

    I even made a domestic thread
