Teams for Asia Cup match 3
From the shortest format of the game in Twenty20 to a classic five day Test match, whether you want a quick fix of white ball smashing or you are after a side slowly building a huge score, we have got you covered.
Possibly the most exciting format of the game, Twenty20 cricket is fast becoming the biggest drawing factor in the game today. Twenty20 or T20 cricket sees two sides go head-to-head with both teams given 20 overs balls to bat and 20 overs to bowl. As there is so little time to play with, the game often descends into the batsmen trying to smash the bowlers to all corners of the ground in search of quick runs.
This of course leaves them open to a big swing and a miss, with cartwheeling stumps, outrageous one-handed catches and incredible run-outs the norm. Indian teams are given the chance to buy players and create something of an all-star team to play in front of the throngs of adoring fans in India.
If you are looking for the most exciting and fast-paced competition in cricket, you need look no further than the IPL and T20 cricket. An ODI match sees each side given 50 overs to bat and 50 overs to bowl and, because this format is 30 overs longer than a T20 match, it allows the batting side to take their time in the opening exchanges to see off the new ball before going after their opponents once they have settled.
This pits the best international teams in the world against one-another. Reigning champions Pakistan came from nowhere to win the tournament hosted in England as they first dismantled the hosts in the semi-final before beating India in the final.
Along with the aforementioned teams, the likes of Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and others also contest the tournament, with fireworks aplenty as the world's best players come together to battle it out for supremacy. The classic style of cricket and the longest format. If you have five days to kill and enjoy a narrative that is constantly evolving, then Test cricket is for you.
Matches are usually player over five days with two teams given two innings to bat, and two innings to bowl. An innings comprises of 10 wickets, with the batting side looking to pile on the runs, while the bowling team will try to skittle the opposition for as little as possible before the outfits switch.
The biggest Test series in cricket sees England take on Australia in the Ashes. This is a hotly contest, often bad tempered, always passionate affair in which two of the world's best Test teams lock horns over five Tests.
The two teams alternate in touring the other, with matches in England often providing very tight affairs, while England's tours of Australia usually end in the hosts hammering the tourists. Regardless of the score, the fans and players always create a supremely entertaining series, with the Ashes one of the highlights of the sporting calendar.
While sports like football and golf see the odds change constantly, cricket is a sport where the odds seem to be never standing still. Australia could start the day as odds-on to win the first T20 against England, but within the space of six balls, three wickets can fall, seeing Australia's odds drift massively, with England's odds slashed.
