I'm interested to see those stats on fifth day play, both on the field and attendance/revenue

4 days are also too many days for certain teams dreaming of playing test cricket.

As has been suggested, maybe they can start on experimental basis, for some series.
Top team vs minnow, like Australia vs Zimbabwe, Pakistan vs Afghanistan, or South Africa vs BCCI.

Mister
India is not minnow
(number one test team for 365 days, but yes Ireland desires to play 4 day tests)
NZ batted 27 overs for their 26 (WR in Tests) all out in 1955
