    Not Applicable, all 3 are different formats and need different strategies. Can't apply Test's strategies to ODI nor can apply T20's.

    Neither.

    All absolutely distinct from one another.

    Agree with Mohsin.

    The last thing ODI cricket should be is a long version of a T20. The whole fun of a T20 is that it is smash, bang, wallop and over in 3 hours. There is no benefit to having a T20 which lasts 7 hours.

    ODI cricket needs its own identity which should be closer to test cricket than T20 in that there should be a genuine battle between bat and ball, not just bat. My favourite all time ODIs have been ones where we have seen spectacular bowling as well as batting e.g. Edgbaston 2004 Pak v India, 99 WC SF Aus v SA.

    My favourite odi as regards competition between 2 teams was Shahid Afridi 2 sixes to Ashwin match... the match was continuously moving in one direction or the other until Afridi finished it with 2 sixes....

    These non-sense rules of 2 balls and power plays has messed the balance in ODI and made it more batsman oriented game. Before these rules there was balance and 250-270 was defendable target assuming good bowling. Now OP is right it is more like longer version of T20.

    Test cricket is based on FOUR innings - ODI’s have only two.
    How the eff are these even interchangeable?

    50 overs mushkil se batting karti hai humari team.. humari bowling hamesha se strong rahi hai aur bowling ki waja se hi hum hamesha strong team rahe hein but modern thinkers khete hein we should play modern brand of cricket. Modern brand of cricket khelne ke liye aap apni strength aur weakness dekhein phele... Doosri teams ki strength flat pitches per batting hoti hai humari strength bowling hai humein apni strength per khelna chahye... agar balanced pitch per hum regularly 250 lagayein to our bowlers should be capable enough to defend this total...

    Agar hum 250 lagate hein to what we need is a good start in bowling.. atleast 1 wicket le opening bowling pair.... Humein opening bowling mein masla araha hai... humare opening bowlers shuru mein wicket nahi le paate Amir to mere khayal se sahi bowling karta hai but doosre end se use support nahi mil paayi hai... Shaheen Afridi ya Naseem Shah mein se 1 ko new ball partner hona chahye odis mein Amir ke saath... ill prefer extra pace of Naseem Shah with that new ball.. New ball se atleast 1 wicket agar hum lein to aane wale bowlers ke liye asaani hogi... bilkul hi wicket nahi leinge to phir pitaai hogi batsman set hojayeinge to...

    Aapko lagta hai agar 250 kam score hai aur defend nahi ho sakta to aaj kal ki cricket mein to aap limited aggression ke saath bhi khelte ho to 300 runs ya 275 banana koi mushkil kaam nahi even agar aap 100 balls dot bhi khelte ho to bhi aap 275 even 300 bana lete ho aaj kal ki cricket mein but agar aap 350 400 ke chakar mein jao ge to phir 150 allout hona hai aur jo ban sakte hein woh bhi nahi bana pao ge.. pitch aur opposition ko dekhte hue innings pace ki jati hai...

    Aap beshak batting ko strong karne ke liye allrounders ko khilao aur 1 bowler kam khilao take aapki batting reasonable total post kar sake aur Hafeez jaise Shoaib Malik jaise Iftikhar jaise even Azhar Ali bhi bowling karata hai buhat achi Harris Sohail bowling karata hai Fawad Alam ki bhi bowling buhat underrated hai waqt parne par Fakhar Zaman bhi arm roll karta hai Asad Shafiq bhi jab khelega to he is part time offspinner too ... u dont need to play regular spinner like Imad Wasim... you can play 1 specialist spinner like Shadab Khan and leave out Imad Wasim and play a batting allrounder in his place which will make batting strong... England se jo match World Cup mein jeeta tha jis mein Hafeez aur Shoaib Malik ne combine 10 over karwaye the Hafeez ne Morgan ko aur Malik ne Stokes ki prize wicket li thi woh eik ideal combination tha... i think u should rely on allrounders in limited overs cricket than 5 specialist bowlers... u should go with 4 specialist bowlers and allrounders in the middle order....
