    What do test players do during the lunch break ?

    Do they actually have lunch ?

    A rub down ?

    Play cards ?

    Or some loosening or stretching exercises ?

    Eat. Both teams head to the same room and grab a feed, they might head back and get a rub down etc. after that.

    Afternoon tea can often just be provided straight to the players rooms rather than in the lunch room.

    It is a proper three course meal; the meal at Lord's is particularly special - lamb chops etc. The two teams traditionally eat the meal together also. Now you know why so many 'fat' cricketers (e.g., Beefy, Warne, Fred) lose loads of weight when they retire!

    I dont know what it is but there is something about watching test matches in south africa that for me make it my most enjoyable cricket to watch on television.
    Maybe west indies with the packed crowds of the 80s early 90s would have topped it but i was too young to remember that!

    Very happy with Burgeinho. 27 off 24 to get them to 9/196 off 40. Will have to bowl badly to lose from here.
