One-Day Cricket
One-Day Cricket is played in colored uniforms and with white balls and provides an exciting alternative to four-day or five-day matches. One-day international matches attract huge number of spectators and are known to provide some thrilling finishes.

In one-day cricket, a team batting first bats for the allotted number of overs, which varies from 50 overs in one day internationals to 40 or 60 overs in List A domestic matches, and sets a total before the other team. The later has to achieve the target before the lapse of the stipulated number of overs.

There are many types of One-Day Cricket played these days, some of them being-

One Day international-

One Day International matches are played between two international teams, each representing its respective countries. The matches are of 50 overs a side.

Domestic One Day Competitions

These are limited over matches played between domestic teams in cricketing countries. The length of overs may vary from 40-60 overs depending upon the decision of the country.

Twenty20 Cricket

Twenty20 Cricket promises more excitement than any other form of cricket. It is played with 20 overs a side and ten players in each team.

One Day Cricket generates lot of enthusiasm and fanfare. It provides an assuring vessel on which ICC can explore non-cricketing countries and baptize the people there into the ways of cricket. Purists, however, refuse to join in the enthusiasm, for they believe that shorter versions of the game work to the detriment of batting and bowling techniques of the players. provides information on One-Day Cricket and other types of Cricket.
