Mitchell McClenaghan, the New Zeland pacer has once again tried to raise his voice for the bowlers. As per ICC rule, a bowler can only bowl two bouncers in ODIs and one in T20Is in an over. But McClenaghan isn't happy with the rule. He went on to show his displeasure. 

Using Twitter as a medium to show his concern, he wrote, "I wish we lived in a world where bowlers could bowl 2 bouncers in t20 cricket @ICC."

We saw an incident over bouncers during Nidahas Trophy where Bangladesh and Sri Lanka players have given differing views on a controversial last over. The argument took place over the bouncers. Two bouncers were bowled and no-ball wasn't given on the second one.

Bangladesh stand-in skipper Shakib Al Hasan was so angry he even asked his batsman to leave the field. But after the officials tried to calm the matter, the game moved on. Eventually, the Shakib-led side won the game by two wickets.

ICC responded to Mitchell's tweet with a hilarious picture which showed a huge bat in making and wrote, "Perhaps the @HomeOfCricket will need to update its laws relating to bat size ????."

ICC had recently fixed the size of a bat an individual can use just to make the game even between bowlers and batsman. But McClenaghan thinks it doesn't make a difference. "Fair - new regs have made zero difference," he wrote.
