I am nominating this for featured list because I think it meets Featured List Criteria. I used List of Test Cricket Records, which itself is a featured list, as a model to base this article off of. Blackhole77talk | contrib 00:44, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
The lead needs a rewrite before it gets near FL standard.
"Sachin Tendulkar, widely considered the most famous cricketer of all time"
Can't we use some other adjective instead of 'famous'. It is like Abraham Lincoln is the most famous president of USA
"since then there have been over 3,000 Tests played by 25 teams. The frequency of Tests has steadily increased partly because of the increase in the number of Test-playing countries, and partly as cricket boards seek to maximise their revenue."
I think this can do with some clarification in the footnotes. Does this include any abandoned matches ? If not, does the record change if abandoned matches are included.
It depends on what you mean by abandoned. If you mean abandoned as in abadnoned without a ball bowled, the ODI doesn't count as part of any statistical records (its treated as if the fixture never existed). If however, you mean abandoned as in no result, then the no results do get factored in. A no result is treated the same was as a loss for this particular statistic. Consider South Africa's 12 game winning streak. The first game in this streak was a win over england in the 7th and final ODI of a seven game series. The 6th ODI was a no result.. South Africa won the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th ODIs of this series. Without the no result, their streak would have also included these matches, increasing the streak up to 16. --Blackhole77talk | contrib 20:21, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Quick comment – Don't have time for a full review at the moment, but I noticed that many headings have improper overcapitalization; one example is "Team Wins, Losses, Ties, and No Results". Only the first word needs the capital letter, and I see several other instances where this is an issue in the article. Giants2008 (Talk) 00:07, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Again, any and all constructive criticism is welcome.
Comment looking good. I concentrated on the Lead, which I've copyedited for you. The information about the Asia XI is UNDUEly detailed. Footnote it in brief. The losing percentages are cute, but are they really what you'd expect of headline records? I would probably expect reference to ties and/or streaks, in their place. In the individual records, I'd expect the Lead to mention highest score, fastest hundred, most economical bowling (10 overs) and best figures for a bowler. The second paragraph, which is very short, seems entirely redundant to me. --Dweller (talk) 12:48, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your comments. I have used it to fix up the lead. Hopefully it is to your liking. --Blackhole77talk | contrib 04:55, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
