Twenty20 cricket is in quite a buzz this year with upcoming Asia Cup and the ICC World Cup 2016, but is this format doing any good to the players ODI Skills? Let’s find out in this comprehensive discussion of the influence T20 cricket has had of the payers ODI Skillset, firstly these matches are known to be played under heavy pressure to score more. And this reason is enough for many experienced players to make mistakes and spoil their statistics, as the bowling they are facing is also much more aggressive and risky.
People are aware T20 is also played within private teams with mixed players in an event called IPL or the Indian Premier League, here players play with a mixed team which is appointed by the owners of the team according to their unique requirements. Here the players are forced to come out of their comfort zone as they play with various new players by their side, this works in implanting team spirit and compatibility. It teaches them to play well not only with their home team but also with a team which is mixed with players from different countries. This helps the players to mature and deliver a better performance even in ODI matches.
Another thing is that batting is crucial as there are limited over to make the runs, the players try their best to only hit four and sixes, and this may even work against the player sometimes but works efficiently once they get use to the gameplay. This can prove to be helpful while chasing huge targets in ODI matches, because in the ODI format there are enough overs to make an excellent score if they play it like a T20. The same can be said about the bowlers, their deliveries are all focused on taking wickets. Wherein, in ODIs they can take their time to analyze how the batsman reacts to different types of bowling, after playing T20 matches their ODI skill set is improved since they have adapted to playing limited overs which does not give them any overs to waste.
