I reluctantly agree. I prefer three and five day matches but recognise I'm a dying breed.
....so when you leave home for the match ...

wife..."where are you going, darling...?"
.."to see the match....see you IN FIVE DAYS...!!" :mrgreen:
Or even longer......in the seventies there were some matches that lasted 6 days. One was India v West Indies at the Wankhede ( yes, really! ) Stadium “

And then there is the rain factor..

You play superbly for 3 odd days get a commanding lead you’ve practically won the game & then it rains, the other team pray for rain to get a draw, what is that all about.

It’s like us being 3-0 up with twenty mins to go & it starts raining, tell you what lads call it a draw..

Still a much better sport than any form of horse racing... in fact rounders is a better sport than any form of horse racing.
