If you're using a count statistic like this, rather than, say, batting averages, you also have to take into account the total number of test matches being played.

1950s - 164
1960s - 186
1970s - 198
1980s - 266
1990s - 347
2000s - 464

This growth, and the increasing number of tests played between mismatched teams, probably accounts for a lot of the difference.
