The so-called "Rest Day" between Test cricket matches was used to allow for the players to rest, in addition to other reasons. When Cricket went head to head with Tennis for televised airing rights, the Rest Day disappeared from English Test cricket. However, around the world, there have been some exceptions to the rule: The most recent discovered was in 2008, when a match would have fallen on the election day for Bangladesh.?æ
