    Why Test Cricket is the Greatest Game of All

    There can be no other sport compared to Test Cricket for its Drama,what other game has so many twists and turns? What other game goes for five days? What other game can be seen headed for a draw, and then in a space of five minutes, totally turns around the other 22 hours of Play.

    There is one day left of the New Zealand Versus England First Test Match, for four days it seemed headed for a draw, with only the slightest possibility of a New Zealand Win, then in a space of nine balls, England turned the game on its head, with a hat trick to SideBottom.

    The public watched New Zealand go from 99/1 to 119/7, thanks to what would have to be one of the best fielding display by any English side in the History of the Game and perhaps any team. The catches they took, were beyond belief, The New Zealand batsman were shell shocked, and now we are left in position of, no one knows what is going to happen, this test match that was Dead, this match, which at one stage some had the Bookies offering odds of 35/1 for a English win, could now see that come true. This match that has captured the Cricket world's intention.

    So where are we, with a days play left, New Zealand has a led of 269 with only two wickets left, a likely seranio sees, England chasing 280 odd off of 75 overs, they of course will be positive at the start, and we will wait and see, but if New Zealand gets a couple of early wickets, then who knows???, and of course there is always a change that the wicket will have the final say.

    This is why people love test cricket, it doesn't happen too offer that a dead match comes back to life, but when it does, its the best Sport in the world.

    The concept, the look and elegance of Test cricket have no comparison in sports today. And more often than not it can be epic as well.

    I was walkin' down the street
    Concentratin' on truckin' right
    I heard a dark voice beside of me
    And I looked round in a state of fright
    I saw four faces one mad
    A brother from the gutter
    They looked me up and down a bit
    And turned to each other

    I say
    I don't like cricket oh no
    I love it
    I don't like cricket oh no
    I love it

    Now I'm hoping, that the feeling is right,
    And I'm wondering if you'll stay for the night,
    So I'm coming, I don't want to be lonely, baby, please tell me

    I want to love you all over
    .

    Sorry, As, but when you keep bringing-up these average songs I must put better ones out there.

    It isnt.

    There have been upto 5 times the original number. That shows expansion.

    If a country wants to play Test cricket the way isnt barred. Its simple, get good.
