Cricket … or Chess?

Filed under: Cricket — Porcupyn @ 8:21 pm

Twenty20 cricket has come as a breath of fresh air, as a very exciting alternative to the world of Test and One Day Internationals. That said, Test cricket still retains its romance. Check out today’s game – the final Test match of the India-Australia series – which has developed into a veritable Chess match over the fourth day of the match.

As always, Australia’s main bowlers – pacemen all (despite an 8-wicket haul in the first innings for debutant slow bowler) – took too much time to bowl their overs. As a result, Australia was behind on their over rate; a situation similar to that of a chess player when contronted by a quality opponent, runs out of time. So, they resort to part-timers and allow India to score more runs, and at a fastish pace, to permit them time to set a good target for Australia in the fourth innings.
