This ODI format is completely different from both T20 and Test matches because Test matches last for 5 days.

If you play fast, you will get out early, which will increase the chances of losing the match. However, if the batsman is in the form of the partnership becomes long, then the fun of watching and playing it becomes enjoyable.
