While Dhoni-led Team India set purist hearts alight with pain and frustration through a disastrous 2012 season, there are certain figures and statistics that could encapsulate ‘funny moments’ of a cricket team that was on top of the world not very long ago.

Hunters to Fetchers

Not mere averages, run rates, strike rates, wickets, retirements, career stats or the size of Gambhir’s Obelix nose- but numbers that pretty much tell the story while new depths were reached and jobs remained secure.

In short, 2012 has been the year in which India’s most consistent test batsman apart from Pujara has been a bowler that was supposed to take over from Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.

‘Well of course Chennai SuperKings are not doing too well…’

Here is a bit of number-crunching to contemplate about-

3– The number of test matches won by Team India in 2012- The test ranking of New Zealand, against which 2 of these wins came

7– The number of people that have spotted Duncan Fletcher all year, including players and support staff

14– number of words shared between an ice-cool Dhoni and a tense Gambhir in the last 365 days14- Rohit Sharma’s average over his last 10 ODIs

14– The number of times Sehwag smiles while standing at slip after dropping a catch

22069– The number of test runs retired from India’s middle order in 2012 (Dravid + Laxman)

22069– to 1, the odds of making the test team for Ravindra Jadeja before 20122069- The year in which Sachin Tendulkar is expected to retire from Test Cricket99- The number (in percentile) rejected by the IIMs after CAT-2012 results, due to permanent scarring with Sachin records

0 – The number of times India has been called ‘World Champions’ by commentators in 20120 – The difference between Ashwin’s batting and bowling average in 2012

0 – the average volume of television sets across the world when Gavaskar and Shastri begin talking on air

76– Sachin Tendulkar’s highest test score in 201276- number of Indian cricket fans that cared about India’s loss to Bangladesh in the Asia Cup after his 100th ton, his last in ODIs

‘Under- 14 Mumbai. Under- 40 Mumbai. ‘

8– The number of years it took another test team to beat India in their own backward after Australia in 2004

8- The number of days it took India to make a bad year worse, by losing 2-1 to Pakistan in ODIs

8– The number of players ‘out of form’ at any given time out of the 11 in the Indian team

20– The number of months it has taken India to make the world completely forget about World Cup 2011

20– The number of IPLs to be played before the BCCI realizes that test cricket is dead in India
