ICC to trial split ODI innings

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is to conduct an experiment to split one-day cricket matches into two innings of 25 over's each.

 

Though this concept is old, it has gained traction following Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar's suggestions for making ODI cricket matches relevant.

 

If successful this will bring a whiff of fresh air into the stale 50 over's match format and it is expected to infuse new strategies and nullify the influence of winning the toss.

           

The experiment looks set to trial during one of the rounds in South Africa's domestic season.

 

ICC in all probability will introduce this change at international level only after observing its success in the South African domestic cricket tournament.
