India off-spinner R. Ashwin has said that he “turns off the TV” while watching 50-over cricket. The reason behind doing this is because the game leans towards the batsmen and there is nothing for the bowler to put much pressure in the game after the first few overs.

Obviously, to create excitement in cricket, two new balls are now used from both ends and R. Ashwin has advocated a return to the use of one ball per innings in ODI cricket to get the bowlers back in the game.

Since 2011, ODI cricket has used two new balls per innings (one from each end), resulting in them being relatively difficult even at the end of an innings, and the art of reverse-swing 50 being absolutely impossible to see. It is done.

Speaking on the Vaughan & Tuffers Cricket Club podcast, Ashwin – who is not part of India’s squad for the ongoing ODI series in England – suggested that returning to one ball per ODI innings would help the spinners, as well. The reverse-swing will also come back.

Ashwin said, “I’m an absolute cricket badger, a nut, and I switch off the telly after a point of time, watching the one-day game,” Ashwin said. “That’s frankly very scary for that format of the game, I think. Those ebbs and flows, when they go missing, it’s not cricket anymore, it’s just an extended format of T20.

“I think one ball [per innings] will work and even spinners will come into play. You will have a lot of spinners bowling in the back half of the game. They are bowling right now but you can see the pitch Let’s slow down a little bit or whatever, and the reverse-swing can come back into play which I think is very important to the game.

“I think the beauty of one-day cricket, one-day cricket, was that the game had a lot of ups and downs. One just needed to spend one’s time, take the game deep, and the ball would reverse swing. One On point, 60 balls to get 60, with seven wickets in hand, and you’re backing the bowling team to victory. Not anymore: it all seems illogical now.”

Ashwin’s comments echoed comments made by New Zealand pacer Trent Boult recently on the same podcast, who suggested that “two new balls on really good wickets” had turned ODI cricket into a formula game.
