I am slowly getting into watching cricket and absolutely loving it. Just watching the Pakistan vs Australia test at the MCG and both of the first days were rained out. So my understanding is that a test match generally can not go for more than 5 days. I have some questions to get an understanding of why a team would declare their innings:
1. What happens if Australia bats their innings, but doesn't get all out by the fifth day and is still trailing pakistan?
2. What happens Australia bats their second innings and gets all out on the fourth day(still trailing Pakistan). How do they decide if another innings is to be played? Because then the risk would become that only 1 team would get to bat.
Thanks in Advance
