Sandeep Sharma, Nicholas Pooran Cheer IPL’s Two-Bouncer Rule

On March 24, the cricket enthusiasts experienced two thrilling matches. In the first half, Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants locked horns in their first match of the league. But the match ended up on a heartbreaking note. Rajasthan Royals’ recent standout player, Sandeep Sharma, backs a rule alteration in the Indian Premier League (IPL) permitting bowlers to bowl two bouncers per over.

Sandeep Sharma on Two Bouncers Rule:

Rajasthan Royals’ fast bowler, Sandeep Sharma, has embraced a recent rule modification in the Indian Premier League (IPL) allowing bowlers to deliver two bouncers per over. He believes this change will add an element of unpredictability to the game, keeping batsmen on their toes. Typically, Twenty20 cricket favors batsmen, limiting bowlers to one bouncer per over, even in international matches. However, the Indian Cricket Board’s decision to adjust this rule for the IPL aims to create a more balanced playing field. Sandeep Sharma’s endorsement reflects the positive reception among players for this alteration in the league’s regulations.

On this matter, Sharma said, “I think the bowlers get some help with this. Earlier, batsmen were able to predict where the bowler would bowl if he had used his one bouncer already. It would be easier for the batsmen. But with two bouncers, the batsmen are also in two minds that there’s still one bouncer left for the bowler to use.”

Pooran’s Words:

Nicholas Pooran, the West Indies batsman, voiced support for the rule adjustment after his unbeaten 64 couldn’t secure victory for Lucknow chasing 194. The tweak aims to balance the scales in favor of bowlers. Pooran’s backing adds weight to the consensus among players for the rule change, aiming to make matches more competitive.

He said, “It’s a good rule. Especially when a guy comes into bat, it’s effective. If someone doesn’t like the short ball, you can pepper him with a couple of them. But in saying that, we as players and bowlers need to do our homework as well. Some batsmen, they like the short ball as well.”
