Is there a different criteria for wide balls in test cricket, versus limited overs games? I don’t see wides called when I watch test cricket often. Also, I noticed that a wide ball that went past the keeper to the boundary was called a 4-wides in a test match, but a 5-wides in an ODI or T20. If so, teams that are bowling for a draw in a test match could purposely bowl poorly to minimize the batting side’s probability of reaching its target. Does this happen?
