Jonty Rhodes urges to change rules to save the game

The former South African Cricketer Jonty Rhodes criticised the new fielding restriction process which was introduced in 2012. He explained that the nature of present game left bowlers and fielders helpless at a media briefing held in R  Premadasa Stadium, Colombo

Jonty Rhodes, the former South Africa batsman and current Mumbai Indians fielding coach, visited Sri Lanka from for a 10-day stint as fielding coach ahead of the side's home series against Pakistan this month.

Rhodes has conducted coaching sessions for  the coaches, the Sri Lanka players and other national, development and junior teams on the latest techniques of fielding.

I don't like power play overs at the end, too much too one sided. A bowler really don't have a chance, a fielder don't have a chance. 
In ICC point of view they talking about the bat. Yes the bat too, too easy to hit the ball for a six. 
If we give the bowler one more fielder as an option out of the circle answerable,It will give them something to bowl too. I don't like these power play overs. You want to see cricket between bat and ball.. At the start two new balls, no reversing at the end. Very difficult for  bowlers without options. We saw it in this world cup.South Africa team scored an inning total of 150 runs in last 10 overs. AB show that he is a special player but it's too one sided. I think that need to be changed, not the bat. 
We need to find a way.. If you got option to do, what would bowlers do? Bowl a yoker bouncer slow ball all will gone away... This should be changed.
