50-50 Cricket Vs 20-20 Cricket

Fast foods, instant noodles, quick photographs, ATMs, just-in-time services and many other service rendering operations have one thing in common besides satisfying the consumers, they save the time.

Time is one thing that homogenises everyone with respect to their possessions. Can this one common thing be wasted?

To narrow down the game but not the quality and entertainment was born the “Twenty20”, latest variant of cricket.

On drawing a detailed study between the regular fifty-over cricket and this T20 will leave us into contemplations.

ODI, the 50 over cricket also called the “Limited overs cricket” is played throughout the day and is scheduled to be finished within the next day breaks, essentially one day.

On thinking back the days of ODI, it would be like a festival where we would all set ourselves glued to the seat with the eyes popping out eagerly waiting for the match to begin. It would be a celebration where the exhilaration is carried away in each one’ heart for the absolute 10 hours with regular intermissions. The game would be played extensively for long hours with encouragement from the fans and aggressiveness in the players. The one-day tactics solely depends on the alacrity of the teams. ODI is not very old, it began in early 1962. Along with this ODI was born many auxiliaries like introduction of appealing sports uniforms, marketing techniques, and durable equipments and on top of everything, the World Series. The players seemed more dedicated and absorbed into the sport that there were no other pressures like “commercialisation, corruption and calibration”. These three C’s absence made the game a perfect entertainment with complete satisfaction of spending nearly ten hours of nail biting moments.

The players in vibrant cloths playing in the spotlight of the stadiums of the day-night matches is quiet a scene to watch.

The three C’s which was undesired, slowly engrossed into the game and proved to be extraordinarily successful giving rise to the curtailed form of cricket, the Twenty20 form of cricket.

Less than a decade old, it was warmly welcomed and was popularised in no time. The rules got little contaminated; rather I would say confusing, as there was an intervention of very unlike guidelines.

This highly condensed form of cricked lasts for a time lesser than the typical Bollywood dramatic emotional film. If fans cannot spend entire time for the ODI at the stadium or in front of the TV, they can have a taste of the game through this new alternative. The game is completed in three and half hours, thus narrowing the time span. The motive of this modification was just to entertain the spectators.

Apparently the inception of T20 concept subsided other forms of cricket by heavily commercialising the game and taking it one step closer to gambling.

IPL and T20 World Cup revolutionised the phenomenal cricket by bringing the global players together, making the fans go more fanatic, huge investments followed by less huge scams and controversies.

The condensed capsule of cricket taught the investors who put all their fortune in IPL teams one lesson “How to become a millionaire?” the lesson is you start with being a “billionaire” so that in a jiffy you become one millionaire.

When 50-50 proved to be like a complete feast, T20 is like a snack time crunch.

Lesser time, more entertainment (but entertainment is not the key ingredient to a game) is T20.

On between these two forms, test cricket, the real cricket keeps swinging making guest appearances.

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
