Editor's Pick - Bangladesh Premier League

First match - Khulna Titans meets Sylhet Sixers. Fourth rank meets second rank. Sixers has played five matches and won three. Titans - four matches and has won two. Not that much of a difference that way. Course it is pointless to talk about run rate so early in the day so let’s not.

Sylhet Sixers (From): Upul Tharanga, Andre Fletcher, Sabbir Rahman, Danushka Gunathilaka, Nasir Hossain(c), Ross Whiteley, Nurul Hasan(w), Abul Hasan, Taijul Islam, Krishmar Santokie, Mohammad Sharif, Imtiaz Hossain, Sharifullah, Andre McCarthy, Tim Bresnan, Ghulam Mudassar, Nabil Samad, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Shuvagata Hom, Wanidu Hasaranga, Dasun Shanaka, Chaturanga de Silva, Liam Plunkett, Davy Jacobs, Usman Khan, Babar Azam

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company?

For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play.

But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the war…

Editor’s Pick ( PKL)

Zone B match - Bengal meets Bengaluru. The Warriors and the Bulls. Wonder what the logic behind the name was. Oh well. These two teams are neck-to-neck with 22 points each. Bengaluru has played nine matches as opposed only 7 of Bengal. Which puts bengal at a better place in comparison. Bengal Warriors - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders –  Young Chang Ko, Ameares Mondal, Sandeep Malik, Surjeet Singh, Virender  Singh, Rahul Kumar, Shashank Wankhede Raiders – Jang Kun Lee, Maninder Singh, Deepak Narwal, Vinod Kumar, Virender Wazir Singh, Kuldeep, Anil Kumar All Rounders –  Bhupender Singh, Shrikant Tewthia, Ran Singh, Ravindra Kumavat, Vikash Bengaluru Bulls - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders –  Ravinder Pahal, Sachin Kumar, Navjot Singh, Pradeep Narwal, Kuldeep Singh, Mahender Singh Raiders – Rohit Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Sumit Singh, Harish Naik, Sinotharan Kanesharajah, Gurvinder Singh, Rohit, Sunil Jaipal All Rounders – Sanjay Shrestha, Ashish Kumar, Ankit…

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way. India won the first match and NZ came back strong and hard in the second match. The match deciding the fate of the tournament is on 7th November. Boy are we interested or what. Let’s see what happened in the second match now.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. A supreme not out 58 ball 109 runs by Colin Munro took New Zealand to the path of destruction. I mean look at the strike rate - 187.93. That is a mind blowing number. The other batsmen didn’t do that bad either. Martin Guptil’s 45 runs from 41 deliver…
