New ICC ODI rules are a bit tricky, says Dhoni
Hyderabad: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni termed the new rules for ODIs set by the ICC as "tricky" and said that getting reverse swing could be a problem as two new balls will be in use from both ends.
According to the new ICC rules, there would be two new balls used from the two ends while batting and bowling powerplays needs to be taken within the 16th and the 40th over.
"It`s a bit tricky as we have not yet played any match under this new powerplay. It would certainly need a different approach as the second and third powerplay will now be taken within the 16th and the 40th over.”
"Earlier while chasing, teams would be happy to keep the batting powerplay for the last five overs. But now we have to make few changes in tactics. It will be giving different results till we get used to it," the Indian captain said on the eve of their opening encounter of the five-match ODI series against England.
The skipper also seemed worried about the fact that there may not be a lot of reverse swing as both the balls will be only 25 overs old at the most.
"A bit of swing will definitely be there but there may not be much reverse swing as we expect in the sub-continent. Now the reverse swing also depends a lot on the nature of outfield and how you make the ball but of course legally," the skipper said.
