    But there are better options (a few proper extra time overs) and I would HATE it if it were part of ODI cricket, this is T20. It fits right in with the rest of the things.
    Haha surely you're taking the piss?

    Let's go even one step further. Have a batsman hit the ball high in the air, and see if the fielder can catch it. Whichever team catches it the most out of the 5 times wins.

    A bowl-out is the worst concept ever. EVER!

    Agreed, although I can see why almost everybody is criticising it, I'd much prefer the winner to be based on number of wickets lost, or number of sixes hit. But a bowl-off does the job.

    Bowl-outs are crap (not that I care much if it's in a Twenty20, but I would if it were ever required in a ODI), mainly for the reasons Fuller and JASON mentioned, but does anyone have a better suggestion (aside from number-of-wickets which IMO should be used, but can also be equal so still needs something else after it)?

    Not sure about Gelman's idea of most sixes - runs are runs IMO, regardless of denomination and to win a game on that seems to me even worse than winning (or, more significantly, losing) it on a bowl-out.

    If there must be a means to force a result, I can't see a better method than a bowl-out. Unless you were to have a complete replay which has its own massive complications (not least time-consuming wise).

    2 extra overs a side, 2-4 batsman, and the most runs scored.

    Basically... let's play another new game! Two2!

    TBH it'd probably be preferable to a bowl-out, but it still has its reductio-ad-absurdum drawbacks.

    Hey, I tell you what, too long, this cricket lark... let's just make it nice and simple... let's have 1 ball from 1 bowler to 1 batsman, and whoever hits it furthest wins.

    Simpler than that would be just watching a blank screen. Neh?

    I like the concept. If bowlers cannot hit the stumps once in 3 tries without a batsman blocking the ball, they need to have another think. It tests the nerves more than anything else. Keep it in the Twenty20 format.

    MS Dhoni is the first captain ever to won a match on bowl out and he has clearly shown his dislike towards it .I would be surprise in any captain would come up with a strong support for bowl outs.

    Stephen Fleming was the first captain to ever win a bowl out. Jeez. This is the second one to ever happen in T20 internationals and first in the WC.

    I liked watching it, but I think it should have just been a draw.

    My Idea
    If its in the knock out rounds then, the team with the highest NRR progresses.
    In the case of the Final being drawn, then we can have a bowl off. I some how doubt that would happen more than once every 20 years though.
