Former spinner Harbhajan Singh suggested that the ICC panel should have more bowlers in the committee so that the rules made are not more in the favor of batsmen.
Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday supported spinner Harbhajan Singh’s suggestion of introducing more bowlers in the ICC panel to keep the right balance between bat & ball. Replying to the former bowler’s post, Sachin wrote, “Couldn’t agree with you more Bhajji! Even I feel the rules and surfaces both need to be looked into.” The spinner highlighted the fact that cricket is increasingly going towards the batsmen and the bowlers also need something going in their favor.
“At least few more thousands runs easily..such a bad rule this is..need few bowlers in @ICC to keep the balance right between bat and ball.. and games become more competitive when team scores 260/270 nowadays everyone scorning 320/30 plus and getting chased as well often,” quoted Harbhajan Singh.
Earlier the ICC has posted a picture of Tendulkar & Ganguly on its official twitter handle. Replying to that picture, both Tendulkar & Ganguly had hinted that it would have been easier for them to score more runs if they just had to deal with four fielders outside the ring and had to face only two new balls.
Currently, there are lots of discussions going on about what will happen regarding applying the saliva on the ball to make the cricket ball shine. There have been reports that the ICC would ban the act of applying saliva in the post-COVID-19 world.
Harbhajan Singh has represented India in 103 test matches & has managed to take about 417 wickets at an average of 32.46. He would have been played for CSK if the IPL had commenced from March 29. Currently, the tournament has been postponed for an indefinite period due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
