Handicap Cricket

I think It would be a good Idea for Cricket,It would help teams Like England,It would also make the game more competitive.
Each team are allowed a different amount of overs the twenty,twenty game could be
Twenty Ten,Australia gets to bowl Ten overs,England gets to bowl twenty.
In the one day game England bowls Fifty
Australia bowls Twenty five.
In the Test Matches England are allowed Eleven fielders Australia only Seven.
There are many other changes that could mask the game more competitive for
England,any suggestions

That should read Aussie Bowl Twenty overs and England bowls ten overs In Twenty Twenty
In one day Cricket Aussies Bowl Fifty Overs
England Bowls only twentyfive overs.
A lot of Irish In me.

With all due respect Keno,I think you should get yourself a manager and stop handling yourself.I think I get your drift but when "Dad's Army" retire completely it could,only maybe,swing the balance the other way. With the current results it could be classified as a blood sport and then perhaps Australia would not be allowed to play England on their home soil.

How about tie the Aussies legs together like the 3 legged race Keno? Give them a real chance.
