Considered to be the pinnacle of the sport, Test matches push each team and its individual players to the limit of their
physical attributes and concentration. Held over one or a number of days, they offer a chance to assess the strategic skills
of a captain and his players as they look to overcome their opponent.

A traditional form of cricket, Test matches are played between two teams of 11 players with four innings - allowing each
team to bowl and bat twice. Officially rated first-class cricket, Test matches can only be played between international teams
who have been awarded the correct status by the International Cricket Council. The most recent team granted this was Bangladesh
in 2000, bringing the total number up to ten. The first officially recognised match of this type was played between England
and Australia in March, 1877 at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground. However, the origins of this form of the game can be
traced right back to the 16th century.
Lasting for up until five days, each day of a Test match is divided into three two-hour sessions. As one of the more civilised
sports around, cricket offers breaks for both lunch and afternoon tea, with additional breaks for drinks every hour. Cricket
Test Series tickets remain enduringly popular with British sports fans, with matches regularly selling out at venues such
as Lords and the Oval.
