acclimatizing depends on pre-series preparation, in years gone by teams sometimes would be in the country 3 or so weeks ahead of the real series, since there isn't much of that these days they tend to use t20s and ODIs as a means to get use to conditions. but i love tests being played first, but maybe that's because it's my favourite format, i don't like having to wait for it and generally i'm more likely to watch the t20s and ODIs if they've played the tests first because i'm already interested in the series, if it's the other way around i don't get into the series quite as much.
