In cricket, a team with many more runs than another team can make the latter team play multiple innings in a row. This allows the team that is "enforcing the follow-on" to complete fewer innings than the other team and still win in a game where multiple innings were scheduled for each team, so long as the team with fewer runs completes all of its innings.
