Types of Cricket Matches
There are different types of cricket matches played at national and international levels. Here is a look at some of the popular types of cricket formats that form a part of different tournaments:
Test Cricket
This type of cricket match is played for the longest duration of time. It is played over a span of five days. It is played in innings and consists of a total of four innings. In each of these innings one team bats and the other bowls/ fields. Since test cricket is played for four innings, each team gets a chance to bat and bowl twice during the match. The team with the highest score in both the innings wins the game.
It is said that test cricket is the ultimate test of a team’s performance.
One Day International (ODI)
This match is played for a fixed number of overs between two teams of international status. The game is mostly limited to 50 overs per team. The team that bats first sets a target score. The other team chases the target. The team that manages high score among the two emerges winner. Each bowler in this cricket format is allowed to bowl for a maximum of 10 overs.
These matches are also referred to as Limited Over Internationals (LOI).
Twenty 20
This is the shortest and most exciting cricket format. Each team plays for a total of 20 overs. The one with the highest score wins the game. All the other rules of the game are the same as the ODIs. Twenty20, also known as T20, has received immense appreciation owing to its short and crisp matches. The game begins and ends quickly and hence the players need to be on their toes throughout the match.
Conclusion
While most cricket fans follow all types of cricket tournaments, some are picky about certain formats and enjoy watching only those. There has been a growing inclination towards the Twenty 20 matches
