Test Cricket or One Day Cricket?

Thread started by Thiru on 23rd January 2006 06:03 PM

Cricket is one of the few games that has two versions in which the game is played.. The shorter version (one-dayers) are fun to watch but its usually a run fest and importance is given to things like fast running , better fielding, all-rounders and wicket to wicket bowling.. The longer version (test cricket) is more conventional with teams choosing 5 specialist batsman, 5 specialist bowlers and a wicket keeper and sometimes 6 batsmen, 4 bowlers and a keeper..
Both the versions are interesting to watch in their own ways.. Which one do you like the most? I'm a big fan of test cricket because its a mixture of everything, Patience, Perseverance and class... Anyone can become a hero in one-day cricket, but for test cricket you need stuff... Its great to watch games going back and forth & teams having time to think about the day's play and come up with a game plan for the next day... Oneday cricket is great too, but at times it becomes a slug fest and bowlers have no room for error or experiment..
