Test cricket is such a different mentality - I dont see how you can expect players to jump from ODIs and T20 one week into test format the next.
We should either field a completely test focused squad or give the players enough time (6 months at minimum) of dedicated test practice to get their brains into the test mentality. I don't believe its about the players natural skill, it's more about mentality and psychological preparation.
Too much one day cricket has ruined the proper Cricket of Test Matches - We were never at the races - The Only one of that line who could possibly bat all day is Root the others are chiefly one day players.
Alistair Cook anyone ?
