    Cricket's rules have been changed time and again and will doubtless be subject to major introspection throughout all the time we are lucky enough for the game to exist.
    Most revisions are minor, to cover previous fuzzy edges brought about by changes in small things.

    A rule set in concrete about punishment of slow over rates.
    If theres one thing I hate, its slow over rates.

    It is extremely hard to penalise teams for slow over rates, there are so many things that come into it. The system they have at the moment is ok AFAIC.

    It would be OK if consistently applied, but it isn't at the moment.

    I am not sure if it still is like this but before if the side bowling first had a slow over rate then they would have reduced overs + a fine. But if the side bowling second had a slow over rate they would only get a fine. Quite a fair disadvantage to the side bowling first. Again I am not sure if it's still like this.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Thing there's some form of run penalties, but it's not applied consisently yet.

    Well that's definitely something they should straighten out. I've read a lot about players complaining about this in tour diaries....

    I would restrict the use of the 3rd umpire, and only use it for stumpings, and run outs.

    You are right in being unsure..
    This used to be the case earlier..

    Now its a uniform fine for whichever team bowls slow... No runs or overs are taken out..

    I know its pedantic but I would rather get rid of the boundary rope and have a painted white line...

    Im fed up with "oh lets look for 2 minutes while we try and work out if his foot was in contact with the rope when his hands were touching the ball", yet they cannot wait on a more important decision like an LBW one...

    The technology exists whereby those boundary decisions will be correct from looking at TV replays.

    It does not exist to be 100% (or even close to that) on LBW's.

    I would like a dead ball to be called after a direct hit has broken the stumps. I don't think it's fair that the fielding team should be penalised for good fielding. When that happens you can get weird deflections that the player backing up can't cut off.

    Yes, I definately agree with that.
    I also think there should be something in the rules about the ball hitting the batsman, rather than it just being down to the batsmen not running.
    I mean, what if you need 2 to win the World Cup final and the ball hits you having completed a single, then goes into open space nowhere near any of the fielders?
    And of course there is the problem of it hitting the batsman then going to the boundary.
