History of India vs England Test cricket (in England)

History of India vs England Test cricket (in England)

I have tried to present a part of the rich history of Cricket matches between India and England since the first match in 1932. Cricket is a bit complex game and understanding of this visualization obviously requires an understanding of the game. A lot of data is generated in each cricket match and more so in the longer 5 day version which is called test cricket (and visualized here). Through this visualization, you can see the win-loss ratio in each series(year) and visual summary of each match and key performances in the series. Also, you can find out the head-head stats of teams for a particular ground. For example you can see (by selecting on Lords) that India have a very poor record in this famous ground commonly referred to as the home of cricket. Also, India has never one the series starting with a loss.
There is a highly 2011 series underway in England and the first match at Lords is 2000th test match of the sport. So I thought as a celebration of this milestone and commemorate the 100 test matches between India and England, I will chime in with my labour of love to look back at the fascinating past in numbers.
