Eng-Ind series - Time for Post-mortem - Part III

One must be talking about scheduling of Indian cricket - how the Indians have been tired of playing so many matches. Others might be thinking why such a big deal is made out of such a small issue. To get a low-down on the actual dates, I tried to map the schedule of the Indian team from the time Australia toured in September 2010. The end-date was till the time India finish their tour Down Under. Each column below represents a fortnight in the calendar.

I have entered all the matches for IPL and CLT20 though a player will not play all the matches in the tournament. The schedule for the return tour by Windies is still not clear and that has been represented approximately (3 tests and 5 ODIs). The BCCI has now accepted Anil Kumble's proposal to play a warm-up match in Australia - but when is the slot available?

This schedule will give everyone a clear insight on the amount of cricket the team is subject to. Of course, the BCCI will say that they give the players an option to rest, if required. But, is this policy actually in practice? That is the question to ask the people concerned.
