Fans deprived of cricket by new ruling

Cricket-Online: Fans deprived of cricket by new ruling

[via Cricket-Online]

“Essentially the ruling is that a days play ends at a dictated time, not when the overs have been bowled. Any overs that have not been bowled or lost to bad light will not be made up at either end of the day.”

I must admit this is news to me. I’ve been vaguely aware that play has been ending earlier than usual (especially in Britain due to Channel 4, the broadcaster, who are worried about their schedules) but I hadn’t realised it had started to affect so many matches. Can anyone else confirm they’ve seen it become a problem?
