IPL – Team Rankings

As promised yesterday, we are back again with the comparative performance of DC and KKR. However today our analysis will not be restricting to mere two team comparison. Instead we have come up with a broader platform where we have ranked all the teams based on their batting and bowling performance.

Batting ranks are based on the runs scored per innings and the strike rate of the entire team composition.

Want to know where your favorite team stands in terms of batting performance?

 

Kolkata Knight Riders as expected tops the list followed by Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils. Mumbai Indians has occupied the last position in the list. Not much surprises there, considering the fact that most of the stalwarts in cricket there played just average.

 

Rajasthan Royals has topped the bowling rank list. The team has got some amazing bowlers like Cooper and Chandlia and their clinical performances has been instrumental in a lot of their wins. KKR and CSK follows next. The 5th bowler crisis which hit Royal Challengers and led the team to play some very dismal matches has led them to occupy the last position in the list. This ranking is based on the team’s efficiency rate and their average wickets per innings.

Deccan Chargers has occupied the 8th rank in both batting and bowling performances.

In terms of fielding performances, RCB tops the list followed by the Royal Challengers and Kings XI. RCB has received tremendous support from its off beat fielders like Gayle and Dilshan.

Our analysts have also done a bit of researching to award bonus points to those teams and players who have exhibited some stunning performances during some very demanding situations which led their team to glory.

Kings XI Punjab tops the list here with the some over the top performances by Harmeet Singh , Gurkeerat Singh, Piyush Chawla and D B Das  during very critical situations. Performances exhibited by Pollard and Rohit Sharma of MI and Bravo and Albie Morkel of CSK in such high tense situations are also note worthy.

Our analysis has been based on all matches played till play offs.

IPL match analysis : CSK vs DC and KKR vs PWI

In today’s post we will analyze two matches.

VS                      

It was a much needed victory for the defending champions who has lost the last three matches in a row. CSK has occupied the fourth position in the points table while Deccan Chargers continues to remain on the last position.  Was this a comprehensive win from a side that has won the last two IPL titles? Or was Deccan Chargers more entitled to a win? Irrespective of the victory, both teams have been a disappointment in this IPL season.

We thought of two important things to analyze here.

1. Trend watch on the celebrity players  of both the teams

CSK (Scaled to the total number of comments received by Bravo on 3rd Apr, 2012)

DC (Scaled to the total number of comments received by Bravo on 3rd Apr, 2012)

We have scaled all the team players to the total number of comments received by Bravo on 3rd Apr, 2012. This is essential to compare the team players. Regular peaks only highlighted the fact that people commented on the respective teams on the day of the match. Dhoni seems to be losing popularity to some extent while Suresh Raina is showing signs to become favorite again. It is a sad sad scenario at DC front. Effect of too many defeats?

2. Sentiment watch on the celebrity players  of both the teams


Sentiment watch is measured on a scale of 0 to 100%. A score of 100 % imply total satisfaction for the player and a scale of 0 implies complete dissatisfaction. Regular dip in the sentiment witnessed due to low comments received on the non match days. it is worth noting that both captains have received a relatively low positive score.

Let us move on to KKR vs PWI match. KKR has emerged winners of the much hyped matched between KKR and Pune Warriors at Eden Gardens today.  But it is Dada who has stole the hearts of the people tonight.

 

Yo Saurav! You are the best!

Our next blog targeted on 9th May, 2012. We will cover exclusively on team popularity, players popularity, top 4 batsmen, 4 bowlers, 4 captains, etc. In the subsequent blogs, we will try to predict the qualifiers, IPL winner.
