Super Series:

Q| All the three one-day matches will be played under a roof which, though retractable, will stay in place for the entire duration of the match. And this raises the possibility of a new regulation in the unlikely event of the ball hitting the metal roof. In which case, it will be a dead ball |Q
[+ why not '2G'?]

Hope the next two make up for the bad start.

the purist in me is worried a bit. there is nothing like a pitch that was left to the elements overnight. It adds a lot to the drama. we may start to miss many beauties like the bowler using the wind to bowl outswing/inswing and so on..

2G ("granted" for the uninitiated)thats funny...

Agreed, cricket thrives on 'conditions'. But how many times have we seen the build up and the excitement (just before the first ball is bowled) all go waste when it pours down just on that all-important day. Hated that. So, to me this is a welcome change.

[yeah, 'granted' from those days]

They should do like in Houston and Minneapolis. Unless its raining, the roof should be open. The weather would get to play and if it ever rains, the game can still continue.

But yes, the conditions are so important for the swing that to take it away makes it so dull.

Oh yeah, roof should be on only when it rains.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
