Whats the point of flying through overs as fast as you can? How about taking your time and playing good cricket.sigh it's not that difficult. Earlier start times, less end changes per game, teams would easily bowl 25 overs and hour, hell we usually bowl over 40 before tea now, 50 in a little over 2 hours would be doable. It's just fielding restrictions, not calculating escape velocity for a space ship. 2 out in the first 10, 1 more allowed out each subsequent block of 10. It will take clubs an extra 10 minutes to put in an inner circle on the ground.
One thing that Toddy really hates is less end changes. It means you have to face a bowler with the wind for 5-10 overs. You can't hit down the ground with the wind at your back. But then a lucky slogger comes out when they are bowling into the wind has 10 overs to smash them. It's just not cricket.
Toddy loves cricket. The tactics, the strategy, the challenge. One-day cricket and 20/20 is just garbage. Whats the point of playing? So I can face a few overs at the end and then bowl a couple of overs at some ************** trying to hit me over mid-wicket every ball.
It seems to me that Blackhawk just want to fly through games to pick up 6 points, then win a meaningless flag in the lower grades.
