Can history repeat itself?

The world cup 2022 league matches have concluded, and we are currently in the last but one game of the tournament. All 12 teams fought hard to be in the final 4. The tournament was like a roller coaster ride where semifinalists were decided on the last day of the league games.

Some teams were unlucky but some underrated teams performed really well and surprised everyone with their performance. Netherlands, Zimbabwe, and Ireland defeated some top teams to make their way harder for a semifinal. Overall the matches were not one-sided.     Story of Semifinal Unlike league matches, the semifinals were […]

The India vs England semi-final has a lot of people debating whether India had a chance, or not. One only needs to see the Worm chart (refer https://cricketdata.org/cricket-data-formats/matches/india-vs-england-2nd-semi-final-3f8db381-35e0-4f29-9700-99eef74d4472 ) and you will see exactly what we mean This clearly tell you that England (red line) were on the high side right from the beginning. India NEVER had a CHANCE. India’s loss was pretty much guaranteed at around the 10th over, as the gap between the two lines increases substantially thereon. The feeling I get is of rushing up a long staircase, and tripping at the last step just to hit one’s nose and then slide down all the way back with no more control, laying in a heap right at […]

Analysis of awesome crazy overs in Cricket!

Analyzing Crazy Overs

KKR VS MI Match 14 IPL 2022: CRAZY OVER NO 16 Over: 64662NB46 It’s the 14th match of IPL 2022 between MI and KKR at MCA, Pune. KKR are chasing 162. At 15 overs, they are at 127/5 with 35 runs needed off 30 balls. One would think that the odds favour the batting side and rightly so. KKR had Pat Cummins (22* off 8) and Venkatesh Iyer (50* off 41) at the crease and the rest were tail enders to follow. Of the 30 balls, 6 balls are to be bowled by Bumrah, so you would give the bowling side a fair bit of chance. But that one over which succeeded sealed the deal for the Knight Riders. What happened? […]
