    According to my friend, 8-ball over Cricket (not indoor, but normal turf Cricket) was popular in Australasia many years ago, but today there is no 8-ball over Cricket except Indoor Cricket. Is that true?
    And could you tell me the size of playing area of Indoor Cricket? Is the pitch length (20.12m) same?

    Yeh, but some people in SA thought apartheid was ok because it was all they know. They were immersed in it.

    Sundries are also worth 2 runs instead of 1.

    I believe the governing body is also introducing into the World Cup the mandatory pizza tray attached to the back wall where if you hit it you get a six pack.
    Yeah, this was the case when I first played indoor years ago but over time just about all of the rules changed; in SA they did away with choice of re-bowling sundries entirely, 6-a-side cricket became the dominant form, 6-ball overs, etc. Did notice a huge drop in intensity with all those changes, sadly.

    I appreciate I may be in the minority but I don't know. Do people honestly prefer a game of indoor cricket to a hard net session?

    When I was an elementary school child, I was playing Baseball (not British Baseball). From that viewpoints, I had many lunatic ideas about Cricket.

    Introduction of Baseball-style gloves for all defense players
    Increasing the number of defense players and decreasing the number of Batsmen
    Using Baseball gum-ball (protection guards are unnecessary)
    Baseball-style bats
    Throwing is legal in Bowling
    Substitution of not-out Batsman is allowed

    No but it's preferable to not playing cricket in winter.

    The shortcomings of Baseball are too many. For example, left batters have clear advantage, intentional 4-balls is allowed, Strike-zone is unclear, etc. So I do not like Baseball now, and consider that Cricket is a far-superior sport.

    This is a wide-known event in High School Baseball in Japan.
    Japan's legend Matsui Hideki received intentional 4-balls 5 times in a row in a game.

    Serious suggestion: increasing the number of defense players from 11 to 12.
    Under the current laws 1 sub is allowed in fielding. So increasing 1 fielder has no difficulties, I think.
