It is an "organic and holistic analytics system in cricket."2. It is an "analytics system used in the game of cricket to determine the accurate worth of a player's performance, in a match, team and career context."3.

    Over the weekend, I read Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography, ghost written by Prof. Boria Majumdar and published by the British publishing house Hodder & Stoughton. Before discussing the book, I ought to make my standpoint clear. I have had no interest in his personal life off the field. His cricket held my interest endlessly. I have watched Tendulkar play a million different innings. I have watched him use different techniques for different bowlers in the same innings. I have watched him bowl off-breaks to lefties and leg-breaks to righties, turn every ball hard and land nearly every…

    Kevin Pietersen has written a startling autobiography. So startling that it has taken the English cricketing and journalistic establishment by surprise. It is a catalogue of leaks, intrigues, triumphs and disappointments which accompanied the brightest batting talent in contemporary cricket on his way to becoming England's greatest international run scorer.Such is the specificity and relentless ferocity of Pietersen's critical gaze, that were it not without regular glimpses into his vulnerabilities and his willingness to admit error, the book would read like an ethnographic account of the…

    ESPNCricinfo published a list of Frequently Asked Questions about illegal bowling actions the other day. Question 1, was as follows:What is an illegal bowling action?An illegal bowling action is one in which the bowler's 'elbow extension' exceeds 15 degrees while he is in his delivery stride. The ICC set the 15-degree limit for all bowlers in November 2004.This is wrong. But perhaps, it is not Cricinfo's fault. The ICC has been saying this for 10 years now. It all goes back to a recommendation by a sub-committee constituted by the then chair of the ICC's Cricket Committee, Sunil Gavaskar. At…

But after hitting 11 fours and five sixes, the opener was sixth out with the score on 203 in the 31st over of this day-night fixture - and despite a fine hand by Ravi Bopara in a near run-a-ball half-century, the equation proved beyond him.
