    brought in to offer some succor to the bowlers, who, in the words of Dave
    Richardson, the ICC chief executive, had been on a hiding to nothing with the
    earlier rules, which allowed only four fielders outside the circle in the last
    ten, and also had a batting Powerplay which was usually taken between the 36th
    and the 40th. Under the new rules, the batting Powerplay was done away with,
    while an extra fielder was allowed outside the circle in the last ten. Also,
    there was no compulsion to have two catching fielders within the first ten.Since
    those rules kicked in, 113 ODIs have been played, which is a reasonable number
    to check whether those new rules have had the desired effect on the scoring
    rates and helped bowlers a little bit. The most recent evidence would suggest
    not, given that England made the highest ODI total a couple of days back at
    Trent Bridge against Pakistan, but a longer term view suggests little difference
    in the overall numbers.In its latest avatar, the average ODI has witnessed a run
    rate of 5.33, which is almost exactly the same as the rate when the earlier
    rules were in force between October 30, 2012 and July 4, 2015. The scoring rate
    increased dramatically in the first six months of 2015, rising to 5.67 from 5.29
    in 2014. Those six months included the 2015 World Cup, where the scoring rate
    was 5.65, and the New Zealand tour to England, where the rate across five
    matches was an astronomical 7.15. Between October 30, 2012 and December 2014,
    the overall run rate was only 5.25. When splitting the numbers by teams batting
    first and second, the distribution is very even over the last 14 months. The
    teams batting first and chasing have won exactly 54 games each, while the run
    rates arent very different either. The numbers are quite similar to those
    between January 2014 and July 4, 2015. The bigger difference, as expected, has
    been in the last 15 overs. With teams usually opting for the batting Powerplay
    between the 36th and the 40th, and only four fielders allowed outside the circle
    in the last ten, the last 15 overs had earlier given the batting teams the
    licence to hit out freely, knowing that there was minimal risk of being caught
    at the boundary. However, with the batting Powerplay being scrapped and an extra
    fielder allowed on the boundary in the last ten, the run rates and the
    boundary-hitting frequency has dropped significantly.Since July 2015, the run
    rate for teams batting first in the last 15 overs has dropped to 6.95 from 7.81
    in the earlier period. The balls per boundary has gone up from 6.7 to 8.7, a
    change of nearly 30%. With more fielders on the boundary, batsmen have had a few
    more opportunities to take twos, but overall the run rates and boundaries have
    reduced in the slog overs and bowlers have had more opportunities to have some
    control on the game.The difference in the second innings isnt so significant,
    though. With a specific target to chase, teams werent so aggressive in the last
    15 even when the field restrictions were in place. The earlier fielding
    restrictions were tough on bowlers when opposition teams had wickets in hand.
    When teams batting first had gone into the last ten overs with five or more
    wickets in hand, they scored at 9.62 per over and averaged 56.81 runs per
    dismissal. In the last 14 months, those numbers have dropped to 8.78 and 43.58.
    In the first 35, the rate has gone up marginally - from 4.72 to 4.83 - but it is
    in the last 15 that bowling captains will feel they have more protection and a
    better chance to somewhat control proceedings, thanks to the extra fielder
    available in the outfield. When England go the way they did at Trent Bridge,
    though, even that extra fielder makes absolutely no difference.****Englands
    resurgence in ODIs over the last year has been written about before in much
    detail, but they have been so good recently that it deserves another mention.
    The 444 at Trent Bridge further underscores their transformation from the team
    that was such a dismal failure in the 2015 World Cup. Since that tournament,
    they have scored 350 or more six times in 28 innings (including two washouts),
    and have six other scores between 300 and 349. In 644 previous ODIs, they only
    had only two scores in excess of 350.A comparison between their numbers over the
    last year, and those between January 2014 and March 2015, shows outstanding
    improvements in all aspects, but especially in terms of power-hitting. In the
    period between January 2014 and March 2015, England scored a boundary (four or a
    six) every 12 balls and scored 40% of their runs in boundaries. They averaged 75
    balls per six, which works out to four per 50 overs.Since the World Cup debacle,
    the batting line-up has transformed, and so has the boundary-hitting ability.
    Their balls per boundary has dropped to eight, percentage of runs in boundaries
    has risen to 49, and the balls per six has dropped to 46. All of those factors
    have contributed towards a run rate of 6.39, and a win-loss of 16-9, from a
    miserable 13-23 in the earlier period. With the batting firepower that they
    command at the moment, they would have to be favourites for the Champions Trophy
    that they will be hosting next year.* Percentage of total runs in boundaries^

    championship would be very important for F1, clarifying widely-reported remarks
    he made ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix that a Lewis Hamilton win would be
    better for the sport.Ecclestone caused a stir earlier this week when he was
    reported as saying a Rosberg title wouldnt necessarily help the sport because
    there is nothing to write about him. Rosberg brushed off the criticism on
    Thursday during Mexicos media day, saying he had spoken to Ecclestone about the
    comments and thought the F1 boss had been misquoted.Ecclestone has often said
    Hamilton -- who trails Rosberg by 26 points with three races left -- is F1s most
    important driver due to his worldwide appeal. Speaking to Sky Italia on Friday,
    his 86th birthday, in the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez paddock Ecclestone said
    both men would be beneficial as champion for different reasons.Well I always get
    into a lot of trouble because when people sayy to me Who is the best world
    champion for publicity? I always say Lewis, Ecclestone said.dddddddddddd He
    travels the world and meets all different people, gets on TV everywhere -- hes
    super for Formula One. Would it be good to have him as champion? Thats a
    definite.But on the other side with Nico, its a new world champion, so weve got
    a new world champion in Formula One which is also very, very important. And he
    seems to be growing out of his old self, outwardly now hes a lot better.Rosberg
    can claim a maiden F1 championship this weekend if Hamilton finishes 10th or
    lower as that would put him at least 50 points clear with two races to play for.
    Though Hamilton could still score 50 points at the final two races, Rosberg will
    win if their points are level due to the greater number of wins hes accumulated
    this season. ' ' '
