According to the newly introduced rules, there will be some changes regarding the bats use for batting. The thickness of certain bats will be reduced to be under the law. Indian great Rahul Dravid believes that the changing of bats will affect the game, for better or for worse.
Dravid said, “Though the change isn’t very drastic as only few players use bats which do not come under new rules. It is a good decision.”
The new rule requires that the thickness of bats will be restricted to 108mm in width, 67mm in depth with 40mm edges. With the bowlers being taken to task way too many times, the ICC believes this will increase the competition between bat & ball.
Talking about this topic, Dravid said, “Yes, the change will have an impact. The results of the games will show the affect. Though the change isn’t very drastic as only few players use bats which do not come under new rules. It is a good decision”. It is also about the nature of the pitch and the size of the boundary that matter”. This new rule will compell players like David Warner to change their bats.
