90 Overs
The total number of overs allowed per day in Test cricket is 90.
So, in a complete test match, a bowler can bowl as many overs as his captain wants him to. Having said that, the bowler can only bowl a maximum of half of the total overs in a day and also that he should bowl every alternate over as the same bowler can’t bowl consecutive overs as per the rules of cricket.
