First-class Cricket
FIRST-CLASS CRICKET is an official classification of the highest standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket . A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might only play one innings or none at all. First-class cricket (which for this purpose includes all "important matches" played before 1895), along with historical single wicket and the modern limited overs forms of List A and Twenty20 , is one of the highest standard forms of cricket. The origin of the term "first-class cricket" is unknown but it was used loosely before it acquired an official status, effective in 1895, following a meeting of leading English clubs in May 1894

This does not always mean that the defeated competitor will not participate further in the tournament; in some such tournaments, consolation or "classification" contests are subsequently held among those already defeated to determine the awarding of lesser places, for example, a Third place playoff . Where more than two competitors can play in each match, such as in a shootout poker tournament , players are removed when they can no longer play until one player remains from the group. This player moves on to the next round. Some competitions are held with a pure single-elimination tournament system
