    Fine-

    in 2015 Steve Smith played 13 tests, 19 ODIs and 1 T20I.

    Most international cricketers don't play many First Class games and hardly any grade games unless they are coming back from injury.

    Or a less Payneful and more accurate response would be Smith played

    6th Jan - 1x Test vs India
    16 Jan - 1 Feb - 5 ODIs vs England and India
    11 Feb - 29 Mar - 8 ODIs in the World Cup, 2 warm ups
    10 Apr - 20 May - 14 T20 matches in the IPL
    3rd - 11 Jun - 2x Tests vs WI
    25 Jun - 20 Aug - 5 Tests, 2 Tour FC games, 1 T20I and 6 ODIs for the tour of Ireland and England
    5 Oct - 25 Oct - 6 OD games for NSW
    28 Oct - 1 FC game in the shield for NSW
    05 - 27 Nov - 3 Tests vs NZ
    10 Dec - 26 Dec - 2 Tests vs WI

    SO

    we have 13 Tests, 3 First Class matches (including warm ups), 19 ODIs, 8 List A games (including warm ups), 1 T20I and 14 T20 matches.

    So Smith played 58 games and on this schedule would have played up to 118 days of cricket this year (not counting days when FC or Tests ended early).

    The best players from England, India and Australia play 100+ tests.
    The best players from NZ, SL or SA will play 80+ tests.
    The best players from Pakistan play 15

    Why are there so many international matches with less club games, in comparison with other sports like Football or Rugby?

    The mighty islands of the West Indies are in the process of rectifying this, their best players currently play 100 T20s for 10 different clubs a year.

    Tell us more about how it would work rather than making stupid meaningless posts.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
