For every test match three Elite level umpires are appointed.  Two of them stand for the entire game, a five-day stint of (usually) seven and a half hours a day.  The other one sits in a comfy chair and gets involved when required.

Would it not be more efficient to do each day what is actually happening for each test match during the current England .v. West Indies series?

By that, I mean that Messrs Illingworth, Kettleborough and Gough are standing in two matches and working the TV replays in the other.  How about they stand in two sessions per day and work the TV replays in the other?  It might make for less fatigue and better decision making.
