Prob need to be more accountable and patient with their batting in a 5 day format

Does anything think its right to play a SS final over a max of 5 days ?
I ask the question as every other game all season is played over a max of 4 days

At a neutral venue 4 days should be fine. But before this series the top finishing team hosted the final and if it was a 4 day final all they needed to do was to prepare a flat wicket and bat for a draw.


What about playing all SS games a max of 5 days ?

That would ruin a tradition & cricket is built on traditions, i wouldn't change it personally & financially it would be way too costly with an extra nights accommodation & food for players & staff over the entire season, furthermore as we all know they made the final a 5 day final to help prevent the home side batting ''forever'' & giving the away side no chance whatsoever
