One Day International

One Day International
One Day International

The game operates as follows, in a nutshell:

Each one-day international (ODI) has two teams of 11 players.
The captain of the team that flips the coin decides whether to bowl (field) or bat first.
In a single inning, the side batting first determines the goal score. The innings continue until either all of the first side’s allotted overs are used up or the batting side is “all out” (i.e., 10 of the 11 batting players are “out”).
Each bowler is only allowed to bowl up to 10 overs (less in the event that a game is shortened due to rain, and in any case, no more than a fifth or 20% of the total overs per innings). Therefore, each side must have at least five capable bowlers (either all-rounders or specialised bowlers).

The run rate is paced by the number of wickets in hand, and it is taken into account that a team with more wickets in hand can play much more aggressively than a team with less wickets. A match is deemed to have no outcome when not enough overs are played (often 20 overs) to apply the DLS. significant one day Matches, especially in the final stages of large tournaments, may be scheduled across two days so that, in the event that the first day is rained out, a result can be obtained on the “reserve day” by playing a fresh game or picking up where the match left off.

At most two fielders from the fielding club may be outside the 30-yard circle during the first 10 over of an inning (the required powerplay). As a result, only offensive fields may be set during the powerplay.
Four fielders are permitted to play between 11 and 40 overs outside the 30-yard circle. The second powerplay can be set to either an Attacking or a Normal Field.
Five fielders may play outside of the infield during the final 10 overs.

In the 1980–81 Australian season, fielding limitations were first used. In the first fifteen overs up to 1992, only two fielders were permitted outside the circle, and then five fielders were permitted outside the circle in the final fifteen overs. In 2005, this was reduced to ten overs and two five-over powerplays were added, with the bowling side and the batting team each choosing the timing for one-one. In 2008, one of the two powerplays might be timed at the batting team’s choice. The discretionary powerplays could no longer be used at any point between the 11th and 50th overs in 2011, and instead had to be completed by the teams between the 16th and 40th overs. Finally, the bowling powerplay was dropped in 2012, and the number during non-powerplay overs, the number of fielders permitted outside the 30-yard circle was decreased from five to four.

The NatWest Series originally consisted of a three-team triangular tournament with England and two other visiting international teams. The three teams would play each other three times each before the final at London’s Lord’s pitted the top two teams against one another. The ten games would take place at the seven international venues—Lord’s, Edgbaston, Headingley, Old Trafford, The Oval, Trent Bridge, and Riverside Ground—as well as other county cricket venues like Bristol, Southampton’s Rose Bowl, Cardiff’s Sophia Gardens, Canterbury’s St. Lawrence Ground, etc.

A year after England hosted the World Cup, the first NatWest Series was staged in 2000. The two visiting teams, together with England, were the West Indies and Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe competing in the opening round. With Alec Stewart batting 97 and Darren Gough collecting 3-20, England won by 6 wickets.

Other 2002’s championship game between England and India was one of the series’ memorable contests. England scored a total of 325-5, including 115 from Nasser Hussain, his only one-day century, and 109 from Marcus Trescothick, but India defeated them with a score of 326-8, including 87 from Mohammad Kaif and 69 from Yuvraj Singh. In Cardiff, Bangladesh unexpectedly defeated Australia in 2005 thanks to a century from Mohammad Ashraful. Australia and England tied with 196 points each in that year’s final, and both teams took home the prize. Every country that played in the test series had taken part in at least one NatWest Series by the time of the final triangular competition in 2005.
