BinitThere's no field restriction in test cricket which means captains can place fielders anywhere on the ground, like all on boundary including the wicket keeper.

Moverover, there's restriction on no more than 7 fielders can be placed on one side of the field (off side or leg side) in one day cricket but in test cricket all can be on one side, if the captain wishes to.
