Messing with the Rules

It looks like ICC is looking to change the rules of One-day cricket in order to make it more interesting. The suggestions sound like the rules which are used within the domestic one-day competition in Australia. For example they are talking about the 12th man being able to bat or bowl in place of another player and changing the overs in which fielding restrictions apply.
Personally, I feel the reason that International One-day Cricket has become so dull is because the Australians have been so strong for so long. This is not there fault as you can't blame a team for being good at what they do, but unless other teams catch up the game is going to die.
The rule changes are not going to change this and therefore are not going to be effective.

    The reason you think horstralian poxy cricketers are superior is total crap, the poms play 3.5 months of the year you bludgerygalahs 8 months. poms play in weather conditions similar to Oz off season, in any case Oz Players cheat like buggery and are up to their eyeballs in performance enhancing drugs also most umpires are on the take, aus cricketers are able to pay more, so there's your answer, the going rate for an oz lbw decision is 200 bucks, $250 for a dodgy caught behind. Most oz cricketers rob poor pommie hopefuls by playing in U/K during the pommie summer, which is on the 2nd thursday in July this year. Warne the druggy is now a pom. also three of the oz team are gay bisexuals

    I dont like cricket, I love it. The poms gave Australia the biggest thrashing in test match history, 20-24 Aug 1938, when they beat us Aussies by an innings and 579 runs. Eng 903 for 7 dec. Aus 201 & 123. but you will never be told about it on cricket history TV or by the media, they only like good news, in 1938 that losing test result was hidden in the rarely read centre pages of the dailies between the likes of hair loss adverts and those giving a ten percnt discount on a treatment for piles.
