Games BCCI plays

No, I don't mean the political ones, but the ones it has sent "Team BCCI" to play since the 1990/91 season (Home and away).

If only they spend less time on playing "Games" on a regular basis, and more time playing Regular games...

Saurabh, surely there's a mathematical progression here, evident to my aesthetic eye but not computable with my non-mathematical mind?

Actually, was at Prem's blog and came by a reference to your blog...great job on
the graphs! Hope everything is going well at your end...

Nice, but I have a question:

How is it that at two points, the total number of tests played (Red) is less than either of the other two lines? First is around 1991, and the second is between 1994/95 and 1995/96. Or were a couple of tests negative? Heh.

You make a good point Nikhil.

Actually I used the 'smooth' option on the graphs instead of a point-2-point straight line. Hence the seasons when India did not play any overseas series, the Red line 'curves' below the actual value of 3 (which is the same as the Tests played at home).

So you can blame the software for that :-)

But I will be more careful in future.

Thanks for pointing this out..

Glad I could help. What I like about your analysis is that quite a bit of it is different from what we usually get to read - a different perspective. I'd done a little analysis of my own too, though not graphical.
