Long but brief? Now those aren't words you hear together very often Tongue
Test cricket goes on for days on end and quite frankly, I find it very boring. Not to say that I don't root for India, ofcourse I do but test is just way too long for my liking, thats all! Confused LOL
When people can watch a match full of entertainment within a few hrs, why spend days watching a slow and boring test match? Ouch

You have a point! But experts say that real good players can be found out through Test Matches! But yeah, I kinda agree! In this fast paced world, who has the time to sit 4-5 days to watch 1 innings!!Smile
But yet, Test matches are important I guess...!

i guess..if u think about it really..people would rather sit for a coulpe of hours then days..
for sure, test cricket has been real cricket, and no doubt it can't be replaced..but T20 is what the audience is looking for..more excitement..a fast paced game..and likely more views..i think this is the reason why the IPL was successful
