    why is ODI cricket hated by many?

    why do Test cricket lovers usually hate ODI"s? To me they are both exciting in their own ways.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I love both forms. Obviously Test cricket is the most brilliant, true form of the game but ODI cricket is still wonderful.

    All else aside, some people just find it boring to watch.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    lol how can it be boring? boring is one of the things which ODI cricket is not. Test cricket can be a lot more boring especially the first two days of play.

    Cricket is probably the only sport in the world to have so many variations of while still played by the same players.

    Imagine golf had a professional 9 hole par3s tour

    Imagine basketball had their NBA players playing in a 3 on 3 format instead.

    Imagine soccer had a 1 on 1 - goal keep versus the striker and that is the 20 20 of soccer.

    Nope. ODI cricket is way more boring than Tests. It's all scripted. Test cricket is where you'll see the real ebb and flow in a match.

    Fielding restrictions for the first 10 overs, start off scoring quick runs, slow down a bit until around 30th over, look to double you score in the last 20 overs. More recently throw in a few power plays, which for me hasn't really done much to improve the middle overs.

    While that is a crude summary, many matches have a very similar story. There is far more scope for unpredictability in Test cricket.

    I don't mind ODI cricket. It's an inferior form of the game but I still enjoy watching it. I really don't enjoy watching 20/20, but I'm fine with the other forms.

    ODI cricket is my favourite form of the game. Enjoying test cricket much more lately because there seem to be less teams playing for draws (or at least one team is good enough to force a result).
