The making of cricket package yorkr – Part 2


Introduction

In this post (The making of cricket package yorkr-Part 2),  I continue to add new functionality to my package cricket package yorkr in R. In my earlier post The making of cricket package yorkr-Part 1 I had included functionality that will plot batsman partnerships, bowlers performances with wicket-kind, wicket-runs in specified ODI match. The earlier post also included functions that were based on confrontations between any 2 teams ( I had chosen the ODI matches between India and Australia).

Checkout my interactive Shiny apps GooglyPlus (plots & tables) and Googly (only plots) which can be used to analyze IPL players, teams and matches.

Check out my 2 books on cricket, a) Cricket analytics with cricketr b) Beaten by sheer pace – Cricket analytics with yorkr, now available in both paperback & kindle versions on Amazon!!! Pick up your copies today!

This post includes all ODI matches between a country and others. For obvious reasons I have chosen India and selected all ODI matches played by India with other countries. As mentioned in my earlier post the data is taken from Cricsheet. There are a total of 262 ODI matches that India has played. These 262 ODI matches played by India are then combined into one large dataframe that is 140,655 rows x 22 columns.

The analysis is then done on India’s batting and bowling performances on this huge dataframe for e.g. who has the most scores and highest batting partnerships, which bowlers are most effective against a country. Also the functions give details like which Indian bowlers have the worst performance or which bowlers have taken the most wicket against India. The functions also provide information on batsmen and bowlers of the opposing countries who have performed welll against India. Since the dataset is large and rich, the possible insights are infinite.I am including some functions that I have created on this dataset below.

Also note that it is possible to choose all ODI matches played by Australia, Pakistan, South Africa etc with the rest of the world. Similar analysis can be done for these countries also by using the functions below

As before the package ‘yorkr’ is still under development. I will be releasing the package and code in about 6-10 weeks time. Please be patient.

This post is also available at RPubs at yorkr-2. You can download this post as a PDF document at yorkr-2.pdf

My earlier package ‘cricketr’ (see Introducing cricketr: An R package for analyzing performances of cricketers) was based on data from ESPN Cricinfo Statsguru. Take a look at my book with all my articles based on my package cricketr at – Cricket analytics with cricketr!!!. The book is also available in paperback and kindle versions at Amazon which has, by the way, better formatting!

1. Team Batting details – India

The following function provides the overall batting performance of India against all opposition

Virat Kohli has the best performance with a total of 7023 runs in ODIs followed closely by Mahendra Dhoni with 6885 runs and then Suresh Raina with 4964 runs While Kohli leads in the numnber of 4s (662), Dhoni and Raina has twice the number of 6s as compared to Kohli. However Kohli has a better strike rate (7023/774100) = 90.33% while Dhoni has an overall strike rate of (6885/7878100) = 87.39%

2. Team batting details – Other countries against India

When we use other countries in theTeam then we get the performance of batsman of these countries against India in ODIs. This is because matches is a selection of all matches played by India against other countries. The following there calls show the performances of the batsman of England, South Africa, Pakistan & Ireland against India.

Conclusion

Here are some quick conclusions I have gleaned from the analysis

  1. Virat Kohli has the highest runs in ODI, followed by Mahendra Dhoni and then Suresh Raina.
  2. Though Kohli has the best strike rate, Dhoni and Raina have twice the number of 6’s as Kohli.
  3. Among batsmen from other countries that have to be feared are GJ Bailey, Younis Khan, AB Devillers etc
  4. Among Indian ODI bowlers Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin and Zaheer Khan have the most wickets. 5.Ishant Sharma, Harbhajan Singh performed well against Australia and RA Jadeja,Ashwin against England and so on
  5. India has to be wary of Mitchell Johnson,Kulasekara, Malinga
