That's the beauty of Test cricket - you have a thousand different scenarios to bat in and must be able to thrive in all.
Agreed. This is why our players struggle in Tests. They might be good in 1 skill but in another skill they are weak. They aren't well rounded enough which is why you might see them doing well 2-3 days but not a full 5 days.
