Default Response to Ian Pont: Batting Averages

Recently, our bowling national bowling Coach Mr. Ian Pont posted a message requesting a table summarizing the batting averages of the batsmen in the current world cup squad. To follow up with his request, I came up with a comprehensive batting statistics of our world cup squad.



I performed all calculations based on the following four screening:
  1. All Ground-Test Playing: This includes all ODI innings played in all home, away and neutral grounds against all current test playing nations (excluding Zimbabwe)
  2. Home-Test Playing: This includes all ODI innings played in home grounds against all current test playing nations (excluding Zimbabwe)
  3. Away & Neutral-Test Playing: This includes all ODI innings played in away and neutral grounds against all current test playing nations (excluding Zimbabwe)
  4. Career-All Teams: This includes all ODI innings played in all home, away and neutral grounds against all test playing and associate nations.
Under each of the above four screening, the player rankings are based on two statistical bases:
  • (a) Average: This ranking measure is calculated using batting averages
  • (b) AveXStr: This combo ranking is calculated by multiplying the batting average with batting strike rate. This combination or intersection measure is more robust in a sense that it accounts for both batting averages and strike rates of each player.
Ranking: All Ground-Test Playing

Summary Ranking by Averages:
If we summarize all rankings based on averages in using all four screenings, we have the following summary ranking table. To generate the summary ranking, we first separately ranked all players based on their batting averages according to (1) all grounds, (2) home ground, (3) away and neutral grounds and (4) career records screenings. Then all these four rankings are multiplied to generate an overall ranking measure.

As we can see, the AveXStr measure reflects batting abilities of our players more accurately. The AveXStr measure ranks both Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal as our top batsman. However, the Average ranking measure puts Shakib Al Hasan and Imrul Kayes as the top ranking batsman. In any case, as it is evident from these simple, elementary statistics measures, Shakib Al Hasan is THE MAN.

I think we need to think this through in a dispassionate manner and not let the memory of one or two innings cloud our judgment. Some players clearly belong and some clearly do not. Overall averages and current forms should be the only criteria for selecting batsmen. I am willing to cut some slack to Tamim or Shakib for those inevitable out of form periods.

BTW, Jahurul should replace Mushy. Jahurul is a better keeper, averages 31 at a SR of 74 (only 6 ODIs so far), compared to 24 at a SR of 65 for Mushy.

That's because the coach is making a very pointed point. If you lay bare the stats, devoid of all things subjective, the best 11 picks itself (not the selectors)

And that's why we kept picking SN who looked so grand against minnows but so hopeless against Test playing teams

But it was great fun to play with numbers.
I even thought about running a logistic regression to study how different factors (ground, opponents, day/night, team-combination) etc. affects the likelihood of good performance for each player. May be a project for future...too complex to be useful for sportsman/team management, but fun for me and many of us!

It was then. Now things are a little different. See NZ series. Just like beloved Ashraful's past can no way suggest he can be a match winner with the bat.
