Using the data

What could you do with the data? Well that’s up to you really. You could investigate who are the best and worst value players in the IPL. Or see how much difference different non-strikers make to the scoring rate of the people they bat with. Or come up with something completely new that revolutionises cricket like finding the equivalent of DIPS (Defense independent pitching statistics) from baseball.
