    4 Day tests in Pakistan

    On average a day's play in Pakistan appears to be about 75 overs on a perfectly sunny day.

    This equates to approximately 75 overs lost over 5 days or virtually a day's play.

    Fortunately it never rains there

    As a result, however, I believe test cricket should not be played in Pakistan.

    It does not seem physically possible to play a 90 over day in Pakistan. That is the point.

    Easy, if it proves impossible and a result is probable play on the 6th day to make up the lost overs.

    Six days @ 75 overs per day would be the sensible approach.

    How incredibly absured. All that has to be done is to play when the days aren't so short. Another thing that could be done is to prepare pitches that assist bowlers more. Even as it is, the matches have been good and have looked like providing results.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    If they do play six day Tests, the days better be shortened so that there aren't more overs than normal.

    They won't need to be shortened - they're already only 5 and a bit hours long!

    Only joking of course, one of the Tests next Summer will probably get rained off.

    I'd try and disagree, but with that deadly Udal/Giles bowling partnership going on, how could England ever lose a match?

    Then again, hopefully the great allrounder Ganguly can stop the mighty England in their tracks.

    Hasan Raza to break Lara's record in England next year.

    BTW, we could always hold tests in the summer in Pakistan, couldn't we?

    Udal will surely never play again.

    When fit, Giles will be back (unless the rumours I've heard on TMS today have any truth)

    Would we be having this conversation if England were 1 up in the series and dominating the final test?

    Didnt think so.
