You forgot to mention that every day they stop for lunch, and then later for tea, and that a test match lasts 5 days unless it rains, and that a test series lasts 25 days (unless it rains) after which there is often no winner.
Do not be embarrassed!

wait till a few weeks when the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland no longer follows eu regulations. then northern ireland will have left the eu but is still for all intents and purpses still in it. think of it as schrodinger's country..
no, it's inherently geographical but you could make it political very easily though.
And so, to sway this thread back to safer ground...before the Yardbirds were Teles popular at all in the UK?
I googled it right before I post that.
it is getting locked due to the political comments.
