Is Test Cricket Dull?

In recent times, especially since the introduction of 20/20 Cricket, some supporters of the game have been debating that the Days of Test Cricket is over because it lacks entertainment value. It is this form of Cricket that the Americans just cannot understand why do one need to follow a game for up to 5 days and at times, the end result is a draw.

The 3rd Test Match between the West Indies and England concluded to a draw at the Antigua recreation Ground. That Match could never be termed as dull and boring. The Fifth day of the Test Match was a real cliff hanger. It had drama, suspense and action. For most of that dramatic Afternoon, Spectators were seen biting their finger nails, even some obviously well kept ones. Test Cricket once more brought out it sometimes true entertainment value where spectators were glued to the edge of their seats for the better part of half a day.biting

Both Teams will now square off at the Kensington Oval in Barbados February 26,2009. Will this Match produce another thrilling finish?
