Test match is scheduled for 5 days with two innings per side. Each session consists of 30 overs. The first session will be held before lunch and the second session after lunch and before the tea break. The third session is played after tea until the umpire declares the end of the day’s play. Players are allowed a 40-minute lunchtime and 20-minute tea break.
If any session fails to meet the 30-over requirement due to bad weather or any other issue, an attempt to reduce the shortage of overs is made over the following sessions. The day’s playtime may get extended in that case.
