Shane Warne wants longer boundaries, 5 overs for each bowler in T20 cricket


Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne believes that having longer boundaries and allowing bowlers to bowl a maximum of five overs, instead of the allotted four overs at present, can help to improve the T20 format of the game.


Warne has also suggested that a pitch for a T20 game should be similar to that of a fourth day of a Test match in order to help the bowlers.


“I would improve T20 cricket by 1. boundaries as big as poss at each venue & on small grounds keep grass on the outfield long, 2. bowlers a max of 5 overs not four, 3. pitch must = day 4 Test match pitch & not be a flat rd as we all want a contest between bat & ball not just 6’s,” Warne tweeted on Friday.


On Thursday evening, Mumbai Indians scored 104 runs in the last six overs, thus ending their innings at 191/4 against Kings XI Punjab.


Sure these tiny boundaries don’t help – but they can still get better at executing their skills (sic),” tweeted Warne.
