I think cricket is going through a rough phase at the moment - cases of player burn-outs , low attendances , cheating all very rampant at this stage. This is indirectly going to have a huge say in the way the game's gonna be played and perceived in the years to come . I am of the opinion that some drastic new measures are reqd. to enhance the status & appeal of the sport.
Firstly , i think cricket should allow substitutions as in soccer or other sports. Lets face it - some member of every touring party inevitably ends up being a tourist. Substitutions would allow teams to cover for any serious injury during the course of the game and would also allow some key players much needed rest. Would give every player in the touring squad a feel of the green. Would also increase the role of the coach & the skipper significantly. It can be misused to an extent but if some curbs are installed , it could be a very handy ruling. At least , it will the put those idiotic jersey numbers to some use.
What say guys ? How would u like to see the game being improved ?
