Bowlers' miserliness in ODIs helps Team India win. MICA -SBS Research

Study shows that triumphs do not always depend on bowlers miserliness quotient . Batsmen are also worthy of praise, according to the report .

Ahmedabad, India: Many Indian cricket enthusiasts associate memorable ODI victories with the unbridled power of run machines such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma, but study shows that triumphs do not always depend on our bowlers' miserliness quotient.The game has swung in Indias favour in three out of every four encounters, as you connect the dot balls in simple terms!Batsmen are, of course, vital to the team's success.Bowlers, according to the report, are also worthy of praise.

Subrat Sarangi of MICA and R K Renin Singh of Shanti Business School (SBS) wrote the paper titled Winning One-Day International Cricket Matches: A Cross-Team Approach.It was recently published in the Taylor & Francis Group's Journal of Business Analysis.Because of the high number of games they have played, Prof Sarangi said that they chose to study India, Pakistan, Australia, and England.In addition, these teams account for 41% of all ODIs played in the game.

A total of 8,384 games were played between 1971 and the World Cup in 2019, out of which 41% of the games were chosen for the analysis.Prof Sarangi said we took into account factors such as the bowling economy rate, extras, fielding, fours and sixes, pitch condition, the number of debutants, the season of the year, and whether the game was played at home or away.We obtained the compiled data and analyzed it based on these results.The results were disconcerting.

If opposing bowlers are frugally aggressive and the fielding is tight, the winning probability drops to 33 percent and 36 percent.When the team goes outside the continental zone, the winning odds decreases to 32 percent.On the other hand, Australia's winning percentage is 55% when batters hit a lot of boundaries, and 60% when dismissals of rival teams are high due to poor fielding.Prof Sarangi said that England's squad has a better chance of winning when their opponents have a large number of debutants.

Prof. Sarangi said that in the West, a great deal of computational effort is being put into marketing for baseball, basketball, and football.In cricket, he said, not much is being done.Prof Sarangi said that it's always good to back it up with evidence when picking a particular player or a particular tactic.The findings only illustrate the similarities between a particular team's particular strengths.

Trainers, team members, administrators, and other stakeholders may be benefited by such findings, according to the researchers.According to the researchers, the results for Test Cricket and Twenty20 may differ due to the different conditions used.
