Former India batsman Sachin Tendulkar appeared to disagree with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on what he said that the ICC rules are very bad and they need to keep bowlers in mind to maintain a balance between bat and ball. Replying to Harbhajan Singh’s tweet, Sachin said that I do not agree with your suggestion. I think the rules should be made keeping the behavior of the pitch in focus as well.
Couldn’t agree with you more Bhajji! Even I feel the rules and surfaces both need to be looked into. https://t.co/QZqJ2sB761

The talk began when the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday reminded the fans about India’s legendary opening pair Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. They have 176 partnerships in ODIs. During this time, both of them scored 8227 runs at an average of 47.55. The ICC posted the figures of these two on its Twitter and wrote that no other pair has crossed the figure of more than 6000 in ODIs.

Sachin Tendulkar wrote on this tweet that if both of them were playing with the current rules, they would have scored even more. Sachin tweeted that it has brought back old memories. What do you think how many more runs would have been scored if we had played outside the circle with four players and two new balls. Ganguly immediately responded that 4000 more runs … two new balls … it seems like a cover drive in the first over.

Indian team off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also joined in and wrote that a few more thousand runs comfortably … how bad the rules are … ICC needs to keep bowlers in mind to maintain a balance between bat and ball. When teams make 260/270, the match becomes more competitive, in today’s round, everyone is scoring 320/330 and also achieving so much goal.
At least few more thousands runs easily..such a bad rule this is..need few bowlers in @ICC to keep th balance right bitween bat and ball.. and games become more competitive when team scores 260/270 now days everyone scorning 320/30 plus and getting chased as well often https://t.co/7h41xWKVYD
