Rummy is the largely played game in India. Be it a stadium or a television, cricket has a special place in Indian hearts in experiencing the joy of watching the game live. Though rummy and cricket belong to different zones, both are considered as the game of odds and skill.
Comparing indoor and outdoor games, on one hand, might sound bizarre, but there is one common style among these two games, i.e., skill. Card games need skills to form sequences and sets to win the game whereas cricket need skills to defeat the opposing team as a team is required. You should be able to make a required number of sets along with sequences where one sequence should be a pure life before anyone else in the game table, else you will lose. Similarly, if you do not chase your opponents or make a target not easy to achieve by your opponent, then you and your team will lose.
Well, rummy and cricket not just need skill but also a bit of chance. Firstly, the players need to have a clear awareness of the game rules. Secondly, the players should realize that the secret of winning a game is all about following the game rules. Thirdly, even after applying the timely skills in the game, odds are required to win the game.
Chances in Indian rummy are based on the number of Jokers you hold in your game. Remember that holding more Jokers can also screw up your game, while the sufficient can increase your winning chances. Even if a player makes one pure sequence in 13 card rummy, holding one or two Jokers can surely help in winning the game.
While the game chances of cricket count on pitch conditions, players' performance, and weather conditions which is considered as the major factor of the gameplay because Cricket is such an outdoor game which cannot be played on wet weather conditions as dampness of the ground bounce the ball on the ground.
Like this way, cricket and rummy are a chance driven skill games. Though the skill can rescind the chance, chances can never countermand the skill involved in the game.
