New Delhi: Former India captain Anil Kumble stated that his suggestion of one bowler getting to bowl 12 overs in a 50-over game will only make it a "better contest" between bat and bowl.
"Yes, I suggested to the technical committee was that one bowler should be allowed to bowl 12 overs in a 50-over game. I'm glad it was accepted in today's meeting. I believe that 12 overs for one bowler in the one-dayers will not only provide a better contest between bat and ball but will also bring in more room for strategising for the captains," India's highest wicket-taker in Test cricket told bcci.tv after the meeting on Tuesday.
"It will affect in a way they plan, analyse and will make an impact on the batting team, be it chasing targets or setting them up," Kumble added.
