I saw the profiles of Sachin, Ponting, Pietersen and some other international players.

All that stats shows that no. of their List-A matches are greater than no of their Odis,this only raised me the question,

"Does the List-A matches include One day internationals"

None of the players had their stats in list-A matches less than their ODI's stats.

The no. of their First-class matches and Twenty20 matches are greater than no of their Tests and T20I stats respectively.

Why?

To answer this in a simple way:

  • Tests -> 5 day games that a player plays for his/her national team.
  • ODIs -> 50 over games that a player plays for his/her national team.
  • T20Is -> 20 over games that a player plays for his/her national team.
  • First-class -> International test matches + Test matches in domestic leagues.
  • List A -> ODIs + 50 over games played in domestic leagues.
  • T20 -> T20Is + 20 over games played in domestic leagues.

"A player's first-class statistics include his performances in Test matches." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-class_cricket. Similarly, List A includes ODI stats and T20 includes T20I. –  Orangecrush Nov 19 '12 at 10:28
