T20 Cricket Game
A T20 cricket game is a form of limited overs cricket that is played between two teams of 11 players each. The game lasts for a maximum of 20 overs per side, or until one team is bowled out, whichever comes first. The game is designed to be fast-paced and exciting, with more emphasis on scoring runs and taking wickets than on building innings and preserving wickets. The game is also known as Twenty20 or T20, and is the shortest format of international cricket.
T20 cricket was introduced in 2003 by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) as a way to attract more spectators and viewers to the sport. The first official T20 international match was played in 2005 between Australia and New Zealand. Since then, the game has become very popular around the world, especially in countries like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, South Africa, West Indies and England. The game has also spawned various domestic leagues and tournaments, such as the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Big Bash League (BBL), the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
T20 cricket has its own set of rules and regulations that differ from other forms of cricket. Some of the main features of T20 cricket are:
- Each team has a maximum of 20 overs to bat, unless they are bowled out earlier.
- Each bowler can bowl a maximum of four overs per match.
- The fielding team can change the field placements after every six overs, or at the discretion of the umpires.
- The batting team can take a strategic timeout of up to two and a half minutes once per innings, between the 6th and 14th overs.
- The fielding team can take a strategic timeout of up to two and a half minutes once per innings, after the 10th over.
- The powerplay overs are the first six overs of each innings, where only two fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle.
- The free hit rule applies for any no-ball delivery, where the batsman cannot be dismissed off the next ball, except by a run out.
- The super over rule applies for any tied match, where each team bats for one over and the team with the most runs wins. If the super over is also tied, then the team with the most boundaries in the match wins.
