BCCI wants two bouncers an over in domestic one-dayers

June 12, 2012 17:46 IST

Taking a cue from the ICC's cricket committee, the Board of Control for Crickt in India's technical committee has recommended increasing the number of bouncers permitted in an ODI over to two in domestic One-day games.

"Two bouncers will be permitted per over," suggested BCCI's technical committee that met in Mumbai on Tuesday.

The technical committee, headed by former India captain Sourav Ganguly, also advised that a bowler must be allowed to bowl a maximum of 12 overs in one-day games.

However, the committee did not recommend any change in the prevalent rule pertaining to the number of fielders allowed outside the 30-yard circle during non-Powerplay overs.

The ICC's cricket committee had earlier recommended the number of bouncers permitted in an ODI over be increased to two.

The committee's recommendations will be sanctioned by the ICC Board in Kuala Lumpur later this month. If they are incorporated into ODI playing conditions, the mandatory Powerplay of 10 overs at the start of each innings will remain but only one period of five overs will now be nominated as a Powerplay, to be taken by the batting side and completed by the 40th over.
