Does anyone agree that bowling standards have gradually went downhill over the past few seasons or is this just at Artos? Crying or Very sad

Any team who are lucky enough to recruit a couple of half decent bowlers would do well especially in Grade two downwards.

Its becoming a bit too easy to bat out the overs.

One point worth making is that the maximum number of overs allowed was reduced last season from 15 to 12, meaning that teams have to field at least one more bowler. Whilst I think that overall this is was a positive move, it will have shifted the balance slightly towards the batsmen.
