For the cricket fans who had come to see the basic rules of cricket as the same, this change of rules was quite interesting.
Sanath Jayasuriya batted well in this tournament.
Cricket fans are most interested when new rules are included in the game of cricket. They have to see how the new rules work in a match and how they affect the game. By the way, the highest organization of cricket i.e. International Cricket Council also keeps on changing the rules to give a new flavor to this game so that the interest of the people can remain. Under this episode, when Playing-8 was dropped in place of playing XI in a cricket match and eight runs were given instead of six for six, the cricket fans enjoyed it fiercely. However, the Indian team could not adjust to these new rules and had to face defeat badly.
Actually, the talk of the first Super-8 tournament in cricket history is being held in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. This tournament was played in the year 1996. In this the playing XI of the players was also changed. Usually there are 11 players in the playing 11 but in this tournament teams of 8-8 players were made. Not only this, the number of overs was reduced. The matches of the tournament were not of 20 overs, but they were reduced to 14 overs.
Australia A won the tournament, Indian team also defeated Malaysia
This tournament was completely new for the players as well and for them it was like an adventure. The most important thing was that in this match, if a player hit a six, he was given eight runs, not six runs. Also, the batsman who would reach the 50-run mark in the match would have to be retired. With these interesting rules, Australia A created history by winning the first Super-8 tournament. In this team there was also a strong wicket-keeper batsman like Adam Gilchrist, then the responsibility of its captaincy was taken by Darren Lehmann. Indian cricket team could not get a single point in this tournament. He even had to face defeat against Malaysia XI. But let us tell you that Malaysia XI was also not a weak team, but Sanath Jayasuriya and Arvind de Silva were also playing this tournament on behalf of this team.
Cricket’s shortest match! The team was all out for just 7 runs, the target was chased in the blink of an eye
