Announcing the New Tools Section

Zunaid Kazi
 
BanglaCricket.Com is pleased to announce the unveiling of new Tools section. This section will contain various Cricket related calculation tools and software. You can navigate to the tools section from the navigation bar of the main site.

The first entry in what we hope to be a growing tool catalog is the Beta version of Target Run, Rate and Over Calculator (TRROC). As you may all recall, we unveiled the Alpha version during the U-19 World Cup. Many members field tested it and we thank them all for their effort and suggestions. The Alpha version did have some bugs and we went back to the drawing board to design a new bug-squasher. Chinaman gave up his day job for a while and hit the math books and no, he can afford to give up his day job. Hats off to Chinaman. Huzzah. Pip Pip. Abey oi. Zunaid finally decided to RTF the PHP and JavaScript Manauals and once again disproved the old saying "you cannot teach an old dog new tricks".

Of course, we countenance you to remember the old adage - GIGO (Garbage in, Garbage out). In this Beta version, we have tried to trap some but not all invalid data. So it is possible to plug in unlikely scores and get unlikely results.

As you put TRROC through it's paces, you will also realize that we have some data validation scripts that prevents you from entering bad data. Again, these scripts are not comprehensive and we request all of you to give us examples and suggestions. Brickbats you can mail to the Zimbabwe tour organizers.

You will also notice two "Chart" buttons. These do nothing for now, but we are working on implementing code that will allow users to chart over time various innings scenarios. Again, user suggestions on what charts might be useful is most welcome.

We have also implemented an Alpha version of the ICC Test Championship Rating calculator. This calculator computes new points and ratings after the comletion of a Test series between two countries. Other tools we are planning to tackle are the ICC ODI Championship Rating calculator and the D/L calculator. We are soliciting suggestions and feedbacks from all BanglaCricket visitors.
