Following table gives the number of players who have debuted for
various teams in home and away matches [switch to fixed font to see the
table properly]. It also gives the number of tests each team has played
home and away.

It appears that Australia, South Africa and Zimbabwe prefer to ***
their players in home matches more than other teams.

                    Debuts             Tests
                 H    A   Home%    H     A    Home%
Zimbabwe         52   22  70.3%    44    39   53.1%
Australia       268  126  68.0%   348   327   51.6%
South Africa    201   97  67.5%   164   140   53.9%
New Zealand     132   98  57.4%   156   168   48.1%
West Indies     151  113  57.2%   192   234   45.1%
Sri Lanka        58   45  56.3%    77    79   49.4%
England         348  280  55.4%   426   416   50.6%

Can you generate stats of last matches - i.e. players playing
their last test home or away?

Since we have the number of players and number of tests played by each
team, we can also calculate the average career length for different
teams:

             Tests Players Tests/player
Australia     675    394      18.9
Pakistan      315    185      18.7
West Indies   426    264      17.8
India         390    251      17.1
Sri Lanka     156    103      16.7
New Zealand   324    230      15.5
England       842    628      14.7
Zimbabwe       83     74      12.3
South Africa  304    298      11.2
Bangladesh     40     44      10.0

Pakistan surprisingly seem to have second lowest turnover.
