Best Answer

Test matches are played for a maximum of 5 days, with both teams having two innings batting (and thus two Bowling). These are taken in turns unless the follow-on rule is imposed (second team scores over 200 less than the first team in their first innings).

Both teams wear cricket whites and a red regulation cricket ball is used, changed at the start of every innings and then every 80 overs through the innings (although it is the bowling side's captain's decision when to take the second, third etc. new ball).
