All-rounders will not be less important
Ganguly says that everyone is excited about this rule. He said that despite this rule all-rounders will remain. The former Indian captain does not think that all-rounders will be reduced by this rule. They say that all-rounders are all about ability. On the other hand, a few days ago, Delhi’s head coach Ponting said about this rule that this rule will end the role of all-rounders.
Ponting has a completely different opinion
Ponting says that the use of the impact player’s rule will also depend on the toss. Bowling team will be selected after bowling first. While batting first, the batting team will be selected. If wickets fall quickly while batting first, then the team would like to bring only the batsman as an impact player. In such a situation, the role of all-rounders will be reduced.
