The longest test match of all was played between England and South Africa at Durban in 1938-39. This was a timeless test which lasted for 9 days, despite which the match ended in a draw since the England players had to leave to catch the boat back to England! Set 696 runs to win in the fourth innings they had reached an astonishing 654/5 and had a real chance of winning the match when they had to leave. England needed 42 more runs to win the game but its ship home was scheduled for departure the next day. The match was declared a draw. Here is the score-card of the longest cricket match in history: http://j.mp/1oPeVvO

Single-wicket cricket is a form of cricket played between two individuals, who take turns to bat and bowl against each other. The one bowling is assisted by a team of fielders, who remain as fielders even after the innings changed. There is no limit to how many balls the batsman would face. He can play till he gets dismissed. This was a popular form of cricket in the 17th and 18th century, much more than the eleven-a-side version at that time. By 1850, the single-wicket form of the game lapsed and was rarely seen at the highest level since then. Robert Colchin, Stephen Dingate, Tom Faulkner and Thomas Waymark were some star-performers of single-wicket cricket.
