The future of one-day cricket, part 342

I note with interest that Mike Atherton has come out in favour of increased deregulation in one-day cricket. 'If a captain could bowl his best bowler for more than the stipulated ten overs,' he writes in yesterday's Times, 'there is a chance that he would and that attacking cricket played by the best players would become more a feature of a one-day match.'

I agree with Atherton absolutely. Indeed, I put forward the exact same argument on this blog five days ago. Surprisingly, David Frith in this month's Wisden Cricketer reveals that the former Yorkshire and England fast bowler Bill Bowes was also in favour. Jump on - the bandwagon is starting to roll...
