What is a Test Match?

Test Match

The test match has a stipulated five days and it has to go on for that time. The teams have to get each other out twice and the one that has scored more runs, combined from the two innings, than the other is the winner. Each day 90 overs have to be bowled. There are also draws in this types of match when five days have elapsed and no team is able to get the other out twice to force a result.
