The first type of cricket I want to discuss is Test Cricket of which the scores are mentioned on livescores 123. Test is considered the original form of the game; Test Cricket matches date back to the late 1800’s. Test games usually last for five days & have no limit to how long each side can bat. Test Cricket is played just between national rivals and there are as of now ten groups that partake in Test-Cricket they are Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe. Test is considered the most athletic of all of the games because of the length and amount of games played. Also, a Test game can result in a tie or a draw.

The next two I want to deliberate are One-Day-Cricket & Twenty20 Cricket. One Day is self-explanatory; it takes just one day to play. The other difference between One-Day-Cricket & Test-Cricket is that every team only bats once & the limit to overs is typically set at fifty. Twenty20 Cricket has only been around since 2003 and was developed in the United Kingdom. It is a form of One Day but has modified rules from the One Day. The major difference is that in Twenty20 has a limit of 20 overs versus 50 overs in One Day. Both of these forms always end with a result.

Although Test Cricket, One-Day-Cricket &Twenty20 Cricket are by far the most popular here are some other forms of the game. There is Beach Cricket, which is of course played on the beach. Beach Cricket is very different from other forms because it has different rules and it is played on the beach, but it is played purely for fun. Indoor-Cricket is another form of cricket. Indoor Cricket is played much the same as other forms of cricket but indoor, this is usully a good option for cricketers who usually live in areas where weather is too hot or even too cold for outdoor-sports.
