"The length of the game — a match can last six or more hours a day for up to five days in one form of the game — the numerous intervals for lunch and tea, and the rich terminology are notable aspects which can often confuse those not familiar with the sport."
According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricket
Traditionally there were 4 day – even 5 day matches. Now 1 day matches are very popular.
We used to bunk school — take lunch with us to watch match day after day or till we we were caught.References :
Test matches last 5 days. This is often not the case if one team wins before the end of the full five days.
One dayers last about 7.5 hours to 8 hours. It could end early if one team wins before the full 100 overs have been bowled.References :
Short answer : Up to five days for a TEST match, ie cricket
in its natural and prefferd form; One day matches are 50
overs bowled per side, but slow blowling rates lengthening
the game are penalised; 20/twenty games are a new idea with
a shorter version of the game using 20 overs bowled per
side and special rules to make for a faster more high

There are different types of cricket matched played across the world. The main ones are
1. ODI(One day international) – As the name specifies that last for a day(approx 7 hrs)
2. Test matches – I think these are the matches you were talking about. It can last upto 5 days according to the performance of the teams
3. 20 – 20 matches – The latest addition to the cricket are the twenty twenty matches which is gaining huge popularity because of the shot duration. They will get over in little over than 3 hr.References :
Normal Duration for ODI's:
Avg 13 overs = 1hr
So 50 overs = 4hrs and 15minutes.
Break-1 ( Drinks after 15 overs ) = 5 minutes.
Break-2 ( Drinks after 32 overs ) = 5 minutes.
Break-3 ( Lunch after 50 overs ) = 40 minutes.
Total time taken to complete 1 & 2 Innings including lunch hrs is = 9hrs and 30 min.References : ( ICC – cricket world magzine ).
