Unlike a test match, a One-Day International (ODI) comprises just two innings, each limited to 50 overs. Typically held within a single day, an ODI lasts approximately 7.5 to 8 hours. In case of weather disruptions, a reserve day(s) may be allocated to complete the match.
During an ODI match, three sessions structure the gameplay. The initial session, or inning, runs for 3 hours and 20 minutes, capped at 50 overs. It’s succeeded by a 40-minute break. The match concludes with the second inning, which mirrors the duration and overs limit of the first.
