Looking back at the sport of cricket, it is well recognized in well over 30 countries in the world. However, only 11 countries playing all three formats - Test, ODI, and T20I - at the highest level. Let us bottomless dive into the development of this gentlemen's sport, from its roots to the modern day.

The game of cricket has its survival in history way back in 1725. It has been noted that the game was played mostly in England but they were successful in establishing the games in Commonwealth countries in or about the 19th century. However, the focus of this article is more on

its international format than its roots.

Tests

In a modern day, this format of cricket is being played for 5 days running, with both the teams getting a chance to bat and ball double in the match. Each of this chance is known as an inning. Hence, test matches are of four innings.

On the other hand, this was a six-day affair in the past with one day of rest between the third and fourth day, finally making it a five-day game. However, times changed and so does the fitness levels, which allowed the decision to pan out the rest day and game being played for five nonstop days.

 

Limited over's cricket

Over a period of time, the viewers started emotion bored and feel that the match should play in a limited time to make a result, to add pleasure to the game, unlike test matches. The result of this aspiration is limited over's cricket, which evolved from strength to strength - from 50 over's to 20 over's - to rule the world.

ODI

One Day International - commonly known by its shorter name ODI - is limited over format, where each team gets a chance to bowl and bat once. thus, this is a two innings game. Each inning consists of 50 over's, thus allowing to bowl 300 legal (posture wide balls and no balls) balls per inning. This game is played in a single day for about three and half hour per inning, with the break of 45 minutes between the inning, thus making it an affair of approx. 8 hours.

In up to date cricket, this is the format being used to make a decision a world champion of the game, once every four years, like other popular sports.


T20I

Twenty-20 cricket or usually known as T20 is the shortest standard format of the game being played at international level. The format is fairly similar to ODI, with the exclusion that each inning consists 20 over's instead of 50, so making it an matter of just 3 hours 30 minutes. growth of this format has also brought in the glamour to the game since the format is attracting audiences more for and hobby than game's core values. However, this is the well-liked format amongst the a lot and have helped increase the game around the world, due to its shorter time and entertainment values.

The important thing to note here is that the test format still remains its best format bringing out the hub values of the game like technique, physical staying power, mental robustness, awareness, and team ethics.
