ICC has always been in spot of confusion when it wants to innovate the game of cricket. Right now, ICC made modifications into ODI game by introducing usage of 2 different balls from both ends of the wickets. Implementation of such rule means that a bowler will have to limit himself to conventional swing, and no reverse swing whatsoever.
It must also be noted that it'll give advantage to the team batting, most probably the team which has a strong batting lineup. I am not saying this because I am a Pakistani but I am saying this as a cricket fan that cricket should be a game in which competition between bat and ball on equal grounds.
Why am I saying like that?
I am saying this because of the reason that a pace bowler can bowl swing or reverse swing when it gets old, but when two different balls are to be used from both end, than how can a ball be getting rough enough to be swinging? Only the condition of the pitch can alter it that too during the death overs, maybe new-ball bowlers can take advantage of some sort during the initial over, but this thing would also hamper spin-bowling department as older balls are favourable for spin bowlers, but when balls are to be changed from each end, than bowlers like Saeed Ajmal, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra, Muhammad Hafeez, Suraj Randhiv, Ajantha Mendis might get some trouble, troubling the batsman.
The guys at ICC also restricted batting and bowling Powerplays to the period between the 16th and the 40th over, means bowlers are going to get spanking from batsman with love, as the ball(s) is going to be new and hard and it will be on comfortable height for batsman to hit, and therefore they'll have to have revert this stupid law, just like they had to do the same with super-substitute thing which got a biggest flop rating, I can't find a legitimate reason why and what were the grounds, making the game so complicated by introducing usage of two different ball game in a single inning?
What I say?
The Pakistani print and electronic media has been criticizing this move by ICC as personally I feel it's a sick-man's sick dream to introduce such move. Limiting powerplays in between 16th to 40th is a good move but they made a contra of it by introducing such clown-faced recommendation.
I say ICC will have to revert it as already before its implication into an international game, it's a flop idea for sure, don't wanna be rational but it'll give advantage to a particular team who're not able to produce reap of fast bowlers, and when they themselves will start to wobble when their own spin bowlers will start to get spanking because of this, they will than pressurize ICC to revert it. So I am keeping my fingers crossed on it.
