Difference Between Test Match, One Day Match and T-20 Match

Daily Mail Sports


Test Match:

It is played between two countries and is decided based on the results of the first innings.

One Day Match:

Is a shortened version of Test Match where both teams play only one day. A good example is Australia v India.

T-20 Matches:

These are played over 20 matches and it is called Twenty-20 cricket because each match lasts only twenty overs. So these matches go faster than tests.

Cricket Equipment:

There are many different types of cricket equipment that a person can buy. But if there was one piece of equipment that could make any player perform at their best, then that would be the cricket bat. Every year millions of people around the world enjoy playing cricket and spending time with their friends and family. Cricket bats have been around since the 15th century, but the history of cricket dates back thousands of years earlier than that. In ancient times, players used wooden sticks to hit balls, but eventually they were replaced with metal bats. Today, cricket bats come in various shapes, sizes, designs, materials, and prices. When buying a cricket bat, here are some things that you should consider.


The size of the bat is determined by its grip area and barrel length. The grip area tells how big of a hand’s opening you need to have to comfortably hold the bat. The barrel length determines how long the handle is, and it measures from the end of the handle to where the bat head connects. Usually, the longer the barrel, the bigger the bat head, and therefore the larger and heavier the bat.


Cricket bats are made out of wood, aluminum, steel, composite fiberglass, carbon fiber, titanium, and graphite. Each material has unique pros and cons; therefore, choosing the right material for your needs is a very important decision. Wood bats are still the number one choice for beginners because of its affordability and ease of use. If you decide to get a woodbat, choose a maple or ash wood. Maple is easier to cut, while ash is stronger. Aluminum bats are lightweight and highly durable. Steel bats are great for indoor use because they can withstand extreme temperatures and humidity. Composite fiberglass bats are the newest option for those who want something that looks sleek and expensive, but does not break easily. Carbon fiber bats are extremely strong, lightweight, and resilient, making them ideal for professional cricketers. Titanium bats are even more durable than carbon fiber bats since they are lighter and do not warp or crack. Graphite bats are made out of pure carbon, and they are the strongest and hardest option out of any of the materials listed above. Most bats consist of four parts – the head, middle block, handle, and grip. The grip helps hold the bat firmly when hitting the ball. The bat head is what actually hits the ball. It may be curved or flat depending on whether you are batting left handed or right handed, respectively. Batters generally.


Test matches: 

These are the traditional matches played by the teams selected for the test series.

One day match: 

These are those matches where the two sides share the same opponents. In this case, the team who wins its first game goes straight to the second round while the loser's side takes on the winners of the first game.

T-20 matches: 

In these, the number 20 represents the total number of balls each batsman gets. The team batting first decides how many runs they want to score before their opponent does. If the winner scores at least 20 points, then he/she advances to the next round. After that, the losers play only 10 overs instead of 15. However, if the winning team loses by less than ten points, then both sides continue playing until the winner is decided.

Test match:

A test match (also known as first class cricket) is a match contested between two teams of eleven players each, who play Twenty-20 matches over four days. Each team consists of five specialist bowlers and four batsmen, giving a total of 20 players per game. Unlike traditional ODI/T20 series, where only five players are allowed to bat at any time, in test matches both teams may field eleven players at once. In addition, both teams are allowed to have six fielders per side while fielding restrictions are relaxed somewhat compared to ODIs. There is no set number of overs per innings. Instead, each team gets 25 overs in which they score runs. An exception to this rule is if the batting team makes less than 200 runs, then each team gets 30 overs instead of 35. Batting regulations vary according to the conditions of the pitch and weather, but generally a player cannot be out due to being dismissed without facing a minimum of three balls. If a bowler bowls three consecutive wide, he becomes restricted to bowling no further until after lunch.


One day match:

An ODI or T-20 match is played over a single day. Ten players from each team participate in each match. These matches could last anywhere between 50 and 120 minutes depending on how many overs remain in the match. Both teams are permitted to have seven fielders per side. There are no restrictions on the number of overs that teams can bowl, although some rules exist regarding the condition of the pitch and weather.

Twenty-20 match:

A Twenty-20 match is also known as a Twenty-20 International (abbreviated as T-20), Twenty-20 international, or mini-test. Twenty-20 matches are shorter than test matches, lasting anywhere between 40 and 100 overs. As of 2015, there were 24 men's Twenty-20 Internationals and 12 women's. A standard Twenty-20 International is worth 1½ points to the winner, and is worth 0.75 points to the runner-up. Additionally, a winning team scores ten points, a losing team scores five points, and ties score zero. If the match ends in a tie after full play, it counts for nothing towards standings. Ties are not possible in Twenty-20 Internationals.

Test Matches:

These matches are only played once and they are always held at neutral venues. There are two teams that play each other over 40 overs per side. The match ends when either team reaches 100 runs or when time expires if neither team reaches 100.


One Day Matches:

These matches have different rules than test matches, including no boundaries and less number of overs. Each team gets 25 balls per innings and the game continues until one team scores 200 runs. If one team scores 200 runs before tea, then it is called a draw. Otherwise, the team that scored fewer runs wins.

T-20's (Twenty 20):

A T-20 is a cricket contest that takes place over just 20 overs. Each team bats twice; firstly, the batting order is set and after that the opposition bowlers get 12 chances to take wickets. The team scoring the most runs in their allotted 20 overs wins.

Test Matches: 

These matches are played before the series starts and take place at different venues around the country. Each match lasts about three hours. The top four scorers after these matches go onto the one day championship where they face each other in a single innings format. If two teams have the same number of points, the team who scored more runs wins.


One Day Matches: 

After the test matches are completed, we move on to the one day matches. These matches last eight hours and are played on a single day. Any player who scores ten runs or more in any innings is awarded five bonus runs.

T-20 Matches: 

These are known as Twenty 20 cricket matches. In these matches, the game is divided into two parts. There is a 40 over first part followed by a 20 over second part. A maximum of 20 overs are bowled per part and 10 wickets fall in each part.

The T-20 format was introduced in 2007. This format has been successful throughout the world including India, England, Pakistan and Australia. The T-20 format provides a shorter playing time for both sides and gives lesser amount of time for the opponents to prepare their strategy. The batsmen are allowed only six balls in the first ten overs and this reduces the risk factor associated with taking risks in the early stage of the game.

Test Match:

 A cricket match where players bat for 4 hours.


One day match: 

A cricket match where players bat during 6 hours.

T-20 Match:

A cricket match which is scheduled for 20 overs per side (40 minutes). If any over is not completed then the umpires declare the innings closed and start the play again from the beginning of the over.

Test Match:

A test match is a cricket match played over three days. Each day's play consists of four innings, each of which contains 20 overs of play. Each team gets two breaks per inning, known as tea intervals. There are no restrictions on the number of balls bowled per over.


One Day Match:

An One Day match is a cricket match that lasts only one day. Each side bats once, and then fielders take turns to bowl until time runs out. If a partnership is broken before either side has batted twice, the batting team will win by default. If the result of the first innings is tied at the end of the last 20 overs, then the game continues into the next day.

T-20 Match :

A Twenty-20 match (also known as a Blast) is a type of cricket match which is played over a period of just five hours and 30 minutes. Played much faster than traditional cricket matches, T-20 matches consist of 20 overs each (equaling 3 standard sixes), and are won by whichever team wins two games; if they lose both innings, they lose the match.

Test match: 

A test match is played over four days (two innings per day), with each side winning two games and losing two games. If both teams win their first game, they play each other again after the interval; if they have the same number of wins at the end of the second day, then the result is declared drawn. An example of this would be Australia vs India, where we have 4 Tests, 2 ODIs and 1 T-20.
