In test matches you have the luxury of taking your time in settling yourself down and setting up yourself for a big score. No limited overs, no pressure to scouring fast and no time crunch.

While playing test cricket the pitch also plays a crucial role in determining what kind of shots you should play on a particular type of pitch. if the pitch is a slow turner than you play shots comfortably off the back foot, if it’s turning quickly off the track then as a batsman you will need to play most of your shots off the front foot, and if the pitch is abrasive then reverse swing comes in to play. You need to play with a straight with the bat in front of your pad in every test match. The first inning is crucial it will be no different in this test match. Whichever team gets a chance to bat first should look to pile on a big score in the first innings and the bowling team should look to get as many wickets as possible-quickly. the team that has the upper hand for most of the six sessions will eventually end up winning the test match.
