I think it should be banned as whats different from pietersen swapping from right to left handed and a bowler doing it, they get no balled unless they tell the umpire i think the same shouls apply here. Also a captain has set a field for a right handed batsmen he then hasn't got the chance to change the field.
I have no problem with the 'conventianal' reverse sweep as you don't change what hand you playing. Also don't think it's fair on umpires as they might get confused on ;bw decisions.
