Cricket is a unique sport with 3 different formats played at the international level – Test matches, One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals. The governing body, called the International Cricket Council (ICC), is responsible for defining and regulating matches as well as for providing match officials and umpires.


Test cricket is considered the format of highest level as it required both mental and physical strength to excel. Teams need to exhibit endurance, technique and temperament in different conditions to do well in this format. It is considered the 메이저사이트 pinnacle form because it tests teams over a longer period of time.

All players wear white tees and trousers for this format. The game is played using a red leather ball which stands out from the white outfits all around. The earliest format of test cricket was played for six days with a day as reserve- stipulated minimum of 90 overs to be bowled per day.


One day international, commonly known as ODIs, is the pacier format. The dress code was same to that of test cricket. Like in Test Cricket, ODIs played using a red ball but over the years, this format also went through drastic changes in rules and the red-ball was replaced with white-ball. It was reduced to 50 over a side and colored uniform. 

Different rules and field restrictions have seen players of this format work hard to hone their technique, skill, and speed to succeed. Teams with a blend of technique, speed and skill will win the game.


Twenty20 International is the newest, shortest and fastest form of the game. It is also commonly known as T20i. This match is usually competed in three hours and with huge hitting, skillful bowling and amazing fielding. Powerplays in T20s are also different from ODI Powerplays. No more than 2 fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle for the first 6 overs. After that, only a maximum of 5 fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle.

Both team has single innings each, and that is restricted to a maximum of 20 overs, take way more risks as compared to other formats which improves the excitement and reward factor for the crowd.
