    Possible restrictions on bats being looked at

    Balance favours batsmen - David Richardson | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    Are they finally going to do something about this issue? If so, about time.

    Nothing pisses me off more than seeing ****ty batsmen mis-hit amazing bowlers for six.

    Thank god, really detracts from my enjoyment of watching cricket.

    I feel like I'm being lied to when I see leading edges go for 6.

    Another strangely sensible move from the ICC. It'll be interesting to see what - if anything - they come up with in this regard.

    About time. One wonders if they'll go through with it though, what with big hitting being more financially viable than good bowling in attracting non- cricketing fans.

    Yeah biggest farce in cricket - feels so cheap seeing a mistimed leg glance sail over the point boundary.

    I really hope so, but this sentence is so full of hedging as to be meaningless:

    So short-sighted. Two new balls, changes to the ring fielder rule and boundaries brought in yet bat technology is being blamed? Come on.

    Two new balls wasn't a good fix, tbh. Takes the spinner and reverse swing out of the game.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Seeing as their first solution is to move the boundaries back out, I don't think things are quite as short sighted as you're making out.

    Yeah the interview sounded quite reasonable.

    He also made plenty of justifications for two new balls.

    Also fail to see what changes to the ring fielder restrictions has to do with Richardson's main point about poor shots and top edges going for six. You could have no fielding restrictions and that would still be an issue.

    You just need taller fielders imo.

    I propose no restrictions on bats, but everyone has to make their own bat from a log they get at the start of the season.
