Score prediction using old databases in IPL

A. Rennie, G. N. Singh


At present the projected score in 1st innings of a cricket match at a particular instant is calculated by taking run rates into consideration. The theory was not able to show the real picture as it failed to take into account the quality of the batting team, the quality of the bowling attack and the pitch conditions of the match. In the proposed theory we have formulated a technique to calculate the projected score using past records of the teams and ground conditions as parameters. The model is based on the database of all IPL matches played between the 8 regular teams of the league since April 2008.
