PSL Two – Rules To Game

The (PSL) in Season two is ruling the roost in South Africa, but several of the rules applied to the T20 cricket games being played aren’t really game.

Just what’s attained by getting the’ strategic time out’ breaks in each and every innings of any game? What’s very strategic about this? Perhaps this’s required for generating much more commercial revenue and much more hype. Since this’s not required for virtually any cricketing reasons. The strategic time out is taken after every 10 overs in an innings of 20 overs. The players can’t be tired in just 10 overs. Normal drinks breaks are taken after each one hour in Tests and after every 15 17 overs in one day internationals (ODI). But those breaks are just for 2 3 minutes. We have seen complaints from others and players against this principle and also the PSL authorities had agreed to explore this after the time period. However, why it was created in the very first place?

Lewis and Duckworth rule is used in rain interrupted ODIs that utilizes incredibly complex calculations to create revised targets in reduced overs to reach an outcome. Earlier, for applying D/L method a minimum twenty five overs must be compulsorily bowled. Due to growth of T20 cricket the minimum was reduced to twenty. In PSL two the Delhi Daredevils won a fight in under five overs using D/L method. Generally there appears to be absolutely no rule regarding minimum overs being bowled for such activities. Thus, it’s a chance that people is able to win a match achieving a goal set for only one ball when the weather conditions gods permitted time sufficient for just a solitary ball being bowled. Although D/L method talks of least five overs in T20 the psl 2020 Ball by ball commentary rule book says nothing. Even a 5 over minimum is a mockery of cricket.
