ONE DAY INTERNATIONAL CRICKET TOURNAMENTS Types of matches in ODI cricket

One-day International matches are usually played in brightly coloured clothing (leading some to give it the unflattering nickname pyjama cricket), and often in a “day-night” format where the first innings of the day occurs in the afternoon and the second occurs under stadium lights.

One-day international tournaments occur in various forms:

The World Cup

  • Involves all Test nations and qualifying associate nations.
  • Consists of a round-robin group stage, a Super Six stage, semifinals, and finals.
  • Held once in four years.
  • International Cricket Council determines venue.

International Cricket Council Champions Trophy

  • Involves all Test nations and qualifying associate nations.
  • Consists of knockout games (if a team loses a single game, it is “knocked out” of the tournament).
  • Held once in four years between World Cups.
  • International Cricket Council determines venue.

One-day International Series

  • Involves two nations.
  • Consists of three to seven games, all matches are played even if series result is determined.
  • Played when one nation “tours” another.
  • Usually played in one of the two participating nations.

Triangular Tournament

  • Involves three nations.
  • Consists of a round-robin group stage, each team playing the other two or three times, and a final.
  • Played in one of the three participating nations or in neutral venues.

Quadrangular tournaments (four teams) are no longer held.
The semifinals and finals are single games, except in the annual VB Series Triangular Tournament, when the finals are a three game series.
