    Icon6 4-balls no-run out

    According to Burgey,

    There are apparently now rules in indoor cricket that if you play out three balls in a row without scoring you have to run on the fourth ball. I hadn't played for years and filed in for a game last year with some of the younger blokes in our club.

    It is very interesting. If a Batsman scores 0 after 4 balls, that Batsman is out. This rule would make the game faster and more spectacular.
    And I think that an out should mean the end of that over. So 1 over can end by 4 balls.

    In the Limited-Over games, 1 over should be 6 balls. In Tests, 1 over should be 8 balls.

    I hope that this rule will be adopted as a Law of all-types of Cricket.

    =addition=

    From my first post, there was an unclear point.
    This "4-ball out" rule must be applied to only the first 4 balls of an over. So, if a Batsman scores in the 1st ball of an over, there will be no out if that Batsman scores no run from 2nd to 5th balls.

    Could you tell me what "luv" means? I do not have much knowledge about English abbreviations.

    Lokomotiv, would you like to see this rule adopted in Test Cricket too?

    What would be more exciting is if the ball were covered in blades. And the bat was a blade and fielders had to catch the spinning blades. And the stumps were blades and if the batsman didn't score after 1 ball then he would be decapitated by blades.

    Spinning, whirling, beautiful blades.

    Yes. Why not?
    That rule would reduce the number of draws and declarations significantly.

    If these rules were adopted then they would reduce the amount of posts Lokomotiv would have to make, so I'm all for it
    There are two colours in my head

    I was going to respond with "This is the most embarrassing rule suggestion I have ever heard concerning any sport. Frankly you need a hard look at yourself if you think it would be a decent suggestion for Test Cricket. In response to your previous response I don't just think you're an idiot, I know you are because your 'ideas' are ****ing terrible and laughable". but I'll just respond with

    Maybe if people ever got upset or took him seriously.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    10am BST Hello everyone and welcome along to live coverage of the final Test of the summer, the fifth Investec Ashes Test from The Oval. It's a glorious day in SE11 and the forecast is set fair for the week so we're set for a stunning end to the summer weatherwise and hopefully we get some cricket to match.
    0.1
    Anderson to Rogers, no run, full just outside off stump, played forward and pushed up the wicket
    0.2
    Anderson to Rogers, no run, much wider of off stump, too wide to induce a stroke
    0.3
    Anderson to Rogers, no run, wide again and, concerningly, it carries through at about ankle height
    0.4
    Anderson to Rogers, no run, this is better carry as Rogers leaves again outside off stump and he's out what a spectacular wicket from Anderson

    BTW, is a lokomotiv thread based on something Burgey said possibly the worst basis for a CW thread?
