England to test ODI two ball strategy
Hyderabad: England will work this week on their two-ball strategy for one-day internationals after admitting it made a significant difference to tactics in their warm-up win on Saturday.
New ICC regulations regarding the use of two balls – one from each end – as well as restrictions on when the batting and bowling power plays can be used came into effect late last month.
All-rounder Ravi Bopara admitted he noticed a massive difference, particularly with the ball when playing against a Hyderabad XI.
The Daily Express quoted him as saying: “When we were batting I forgot we were playing with one ball. I thought I was seeing it well. That’s probably why – because we were playing with two. When I was bowling though it made a big difference. We had one ball that was swinging and one that wasn’t.”
