New regulations in one-day cricket are likely to ensure that there'll be a greater frequency of bigger scores, meaning more hard work for bowlers, writes Simon Hughes in the Daily Telegraph.
A maximum of only four fielders are now permitted on the boundary in one-day internationals. Only three are allowed in the batting powerplay, which invariably precedes the final 10 overs of the innings. So, for the last 15 overs of the innings you can predict at least two boundaries an over. Add a single every other ball to the mix and realistically the minimum you can expect to concede in that final third is 150 runs.
