He is conflating hypothetical with factual here. It WAS NOT a ODI match because
a) The rules of wides in a Test are way way more loose. You can bowl a foot outside leg stump and get away with it.
b) You are not obligated to keep close-in fielders. You could put as many boundary riders as you like.
c) No punishment for no-ball (Bruce bowled 4 at least) with a free hit
d) No mandatory PowerPlay
e) There were not two hard balls on two ends.
f) No limitations on the number of overs one bowler can deliver

All of these are changes made to traditional Test rules in order to make run scoring EASIER in ODIs. So what Zeeshan states as fact IS, in fact NOT
