This is why nothing tests a cricketer's skill, temperament and character more than tests. You pretty much start from square one each day and cannot succeed without renewed focus. The longer the break, the more difficult it gets to do just that. It's not easy to sustain your focus from session to session in a single day either, but to carry your form into the next day after a good night's sleep is simply too difficult for most. Gotta love test cricket to truly appreciate the subtle nuances that define cricket itself.
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
