What is follow on in cricket

What is followed in cricket?

In the game of cricket, a team who batted second and scored significantly fewer runs than the team who batted first may be forced to follow on: to take their second innings immediately after their first.

The follow-on is a rule in test cricket that forces the team batting second to bat again immediately after their first innings have finished. In Tests, the follow-on can only be enforced if the team batting first achieves first innings of a least 200 runs.

Enforcing follow ons reduces the probability of a drawn result by enabling the second team's second innings to be completed sooner.
