CA green-lights fresh one-day format

Cricket Australia will forge ahead with its reinvigorated domestic limited-overs competition this summer after receiving the support of its Playing Conditions Committee.

Committee members Mark Taylor, Matthew Hayden, Greg Chappell, Shane Warne, Paul Marsh and CA chairman Jack Clarke gave the go-ahead for the 45-over, 12-a-side format to be trialed during Australia's 2010-11 one-day tournament.

Tasmania and South Australia played under the new rules for the first time in a trial in Darwin last week that saw the Tigers triumph by six wickets with more than eight overs to spare.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said that the nation's cricket fans had called for a facelift for what was otherwise their favourite format.

"We have listened to the public, undertaken comprehensive https://www.goldengooseshoesit.com/ consultation across Australian cricket and developed a format which we now want to test thoroughly this summer," he said in a statement.

Under the new system each team will bat for 45 overs split into innings of 20 and 25 overs, but power plays have been abolished.

Bowlers can have a maximum of 12 overs each and fielding teams will receive a new ball from each end at the start of the innings, but will receive no further new balls.

In the first five overs, only two men may field outside the circle. Between overs six and 20, that number increases to four, before reverting to two between overs 21 and 25 and then back to four outside the circle for the final 20 overs.

The new format also means teams can bat and field any 11 of the 12 players on their side, with 10 wickets per team.

A first innings lead will be rewarded with one point, regardless of the outcome of the game, and four points will be awarded for a win.

A maximum of five competition points is available if a team leads at the first innings and goes on to win.

Sutherland said fans had called for a mixture of action and tactics, combining the best elements of Twenty20 and Test cricket.

"The fans told us, through formal research, that they like all three formats, there is a place for three cricket formats," he said.

"They like ODI cricket best, but they want to see it refreshed and they want to see it with a short-form identity that is distinctively different from fast-emerging T20 cricket.

"Interpreting the data, fans see Test cricket as the formal, long-form strategic game; they see T20 as a bite-sized piece of cricket entertainment and they think ODI cricket sits in the middle as, in a sense, a strategically-based, one-day Test match."

He recognised that the changes may not be well-received by all cricket fans, but the format deserves to be given a chance.

"I confidently predict Golden Goose Shoes plenty of public discussion over summer - but we clearly need to do something to refresh the world's most popular format," he said.

"We have listened to the public, consulted throughout cricket, and now want to give this format a thorough trial to test it out before longer term assessment about whether this might become an international format."
