    Yeah agreed. However, it might seem a bit unfair if the fielder dives and pushes the rope further back before stopping it, by which point the ball has already rolled over where the rope would have been initially.

    • There should be a ditch, approximately 2 metres deep, between boundary and fence. Ball goes down there and fireworks immediately shoot up.
    • Legalise corking of bats so more dingers are socked.
    • Intentional four ball rule that I've heard about (but not seen).
    • 67th over stretch.
    • Replacing the cricket ball with a golf ball so it would ping off more easily.
    • Players fileding outside the circle are allowed the assistance of Segways.
    • One player from the batting team is allowed to field in order to run interference. They too are allowed a segway but it must be a different colour to the fielding team's segway.

    This is the best.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Long pants should be outlawed. Also crotch rubbing is ball abuse.

    According to the Laws of Cricket, the number of balls of 1 over is 6 or 8.

    In limited-over games -- 1 over 6 balls
    In Tests -- 1 over 8 balls

    What do you think?

    Change the number of balls per over to 3. This would effectively double the over-rates of teams which have been horrendous lately.

    Not an issue. The rule in that case would be, as it always has been, the position the rope is at, not if the ball actually physically hits the rope itself. Under the rope the grass is usually coloured differently or something so you can tell if the ball went over the boundary. So essentially the rope isn't the boundary, the boundary is just where the rope usually lies.

    Would mean watching replays though, which the whole point of this new rule is to eliminate as much as possible. Also adds a bit of ambiguity which is a recipe for controversy. Could be solved by painting the boundary lines I guess.

    By increasing the number of balls of 1 over from 6 to 8, the time of breaks between overs can be reduced.

    No it wouldn't. You can just as easily tell if the ball went over the line than if it hit the rope without needing a replay.

    In most cases yeah, but not when there's a 150 pound grown man diving on top of it

    So all those times where the fielder dives, moves the rope, waits for the ball to cross what he's just moved, and then fields it?
