    Twelve overs though isn't a bad idea for 4 or even just any two of the bowlers.
    Not everyone used to play him out, I remember him going for 99 off 10 in an ODI in Australia, and I seem to recall Vettori being offered even more respect than Murali gained.

    The middle overs are the dead wood in ODIs, and I don't see that the 5th bowler is the issue given it's quite likely any attacking of him would be done through the middle too, given he wouldn't open the bowling, bowl in powerplays or at the death.

    12 overs, as I said, doesn't sound bad to me but I don't think it would breathe life into ODI cricket, or even change it much at all. Until they find a way to play it in 3 hrs, it's on a downward spiral of relevancy (and if some countries continue to insist on painful 7-match series')

    htis is a good idea. i will give the a OP a tentative +1.
    You take my pawn, I take your rook. You take my bishop, I take your queen. You take my knight, I buy Mayfair. Because while you were busy playing chess, I've been playing Monopoly the entire time.

    Of course we do not. Professional Baseball is crazy--6 games in a week! So there is rotation of starting pitchers, and there are closers.

    Can't pitchers in baseball throw 4 balls intentionally? (I've heard of it happening but never actually seen it occur in a game)

    Baseball Pitchers can do that, because there is no wide-ball in Baseball.
    Intentional 4-ball tactic is not so rare, particularly in the games in which there is no DH.
    This is a video of 5 intentional 4-balls in a row in Japan's High School Baseball national tournament. The Batter is Matui (Matsui), Japan's Baseball legend.

Instead he has come up with what I think is his silliest idea yet, and that's quite an achievement in the face of some stiff competition

    Indeed, I would argue the very opposite of his point.. Allowing bowlers bowl more than 10 in ODIs..

    I have a question. Is the 20% limitation rule in ODI applied to other limited-over games, such as T20 or YB40?
    When I attended a YB40 game, the length of the game was reduced to 29 overs due to rain. In that case, the same 20% limitation applies?

    Yeah it still does. In games where the overs aren't divisible by 5 they usually allow one or two bowlers to bowl an extra over each.

    What do you think about other way of limitation; like "when a bowler bowled 1 over, that bowler cannot bowl next 3 overs"?

    One of the nicest things I've seen in a ODI was Geoffrey Boycott being smashed all over the pack by Viv Richards and Collis King in the 1979 World Cup Final. So I kinda like having the 5th bowler option.

    Not really excited by field restrictions though as I reckon the Captain should be free to employ any tactics he wishes. The only reason we have fielding restrictions in the first place is that Mike Brearley decided to stick 10 fielders on the fence during a 1980/81 Day-Nighter when Colin Croft had to hit 4 off the last ball to win the match. So what, and good on him. I like such eccentric things happening as it's one of the reasons why I watch cricket in the first place.

    Strip all the rules back back to their most original and purest form, cut the beaurocratic red-tape, and let the captains and players use their imaginations to win the game I say.
