After a series of Ball Difference based posts on IPL2014 it is time to find a Playing XI objectively. First a set of rules:

  • No more than 4 overseas players
  • At least 1 uncapped player
  • At least 4 bowlers, 2 fast and 2 slow
  • At least 1 allrounder
  • A wicketkeeper who kept wickets during IPL 2014
  • A captain who captained a team during IPL 2014

Playoff performances are not considered. 152 players participated in the double round robin phase. 60 overseas players compared to 92 Indians out of which 44 were uncapped.

Let us take a look at the most valuable players to pencil in those who select themselves.

IPL14MVP

Uthappa, Smith and Maxwell select themselves, We note that 2 of these are overseas players that means the selection of Duminy, Shakib and Warner is unlikely. Yuvraj and Jadeja are the contenders for allrounder spot. Akshar Patel selects himself as the uncapped player. There is little to separate Narine and Bhuvnesh who will fill two of the four spots reserved for bowlers.

Uthappa kept wickets for KKR so we don’t have to look for another wicketkeeper. Let use see who else would have been in contention.

IPL14-Wkt

Dhoni could make the cut as Captain and specialist wicketkeeper but his figures this season are not outstanding. He still remains in contention though.

IPL14-Capt

Captains did not lead by example. In case Watson is chosen for the Captain and Allrounder spot then we can’t select any other overseas player. Rohit Sharma was consistent in his average performances which is clear from the short black box. See this for details about G & µ and how a shorter difference between these 2 averages indicates the absence of few very good performances vis-a-vis multiple failures. Kohli is a case in point with a very tall black box. Even though the pool is very small, Dhoni still doesn’t make his case. This spot is still open.

We already found an uncapped player but we must take stock of how others performed.

IPL14-IUPG20

An uncapped batsman would have been welcome because 3 bowler spots are already taken. The fourth spot would ideally go to a genuinely fast bowler hence we can’t consider Karn Sharma, Chahal, Tambe, Rishi Dhawan, Bhatia or Sandeep Sharma. Only Karun Nair remains in contention.

Only 1 spot open for an overseas player. Let us look for an outstanding overseas allrounder.

IPL14-OvAl

Maxwell has selected himself. Shakib is a bowling allrounder and we are short on batsmen. Watson could fill the spot for Captain, batting all-rounder and a faster bowler. Faulkner does well as a late order batsman able to chase very quickly . Alas there aren’t enough berths. He has a faint chance to make the cut.

That means a lot of open spots for local players. Let us take a look at allrounders first.

IPL14-ICAl

Yuvraj and Jadeja are the only genuine contenders. Yuvraj wasn’t consistent. Jadeja was consistent but more so with his bowling hat. One or both could make it in the last XI due to lack of quality performances from domestic players.

We will first take a look at overseas players for the last bowling spot.

IPL14-OvBw

Sunil Narine is an automatic choice. Steyn, Starc and Malinga could all be considered as the sole really fast bowler. Malinga left early hence his tally of total points is lower but his average performance per match is higher than both Steyn and Starc. Malinga gets the nod for his band for µ – G which is both higher and narrower than the other two.

We now take a look at Indian bowlers to confirm who will fill the four berths.

IPL14-ICBw

Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the best Indian bowler. Narine, Akshar Patel and Malinga meet the selection requirements. Ashwin was extremely consistent. Harbhajan was the star performer for Mumbai and would have earned more individual points had MI fared better collectively. They must consider themselves unfortunate as spots are open in the batting department only.

No more place for another overseas player but we must take a look at all overseas batsmen.

IPL14-OvBa

Dwayne Smith was an automatic choice. Warner could be considered for the #3 spot if another place was available. Lendl Simmons impressed in the few innings he played but both the openers are already selected.

We are still looking for at least 2 and a maximum of 3 players for their batting skills. Let us see how the Indian Capped Batsmen performed relative to each other.

IPL14-ICBt

Uthappa need not be discussed as he has spoken loud and clear with his bat. Kohli could be considered for the #3 spot but he failed more often than he succeded. Both Rayudu and Rohit Sharma performed at or below par and MI would have finished higher with better contibution from these two. Raina’s performances also went up and down. Dhoni’s performances discussed already. Sehwag had a decent series considering he does not represent India on an international stage at this point. Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan disappointed their fans. Uthappa upstaged Dinesh Karthik. Gambhir started miserably but lifted his performance to achieve moderate levels.

It will be selector’s decision as players have failed to select themselves by the sheer weight of numbers. Karun Nair, the uncapped player, after careful consideration was deemed not to make the cut. Rohit Sharma will be the captain and Rayudu will bat at #6. Both Yuvraj and Jadeja get the nod; one as batting and other as bowling allrounder.

The final Ball Difference Playing XI will be:

  • 4 overseas players: Dwayne Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Sunil Narine and Lasith Malinga.
  • 1 uncapped player: Akshar Patel
  • Bowlers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Malinga (fast) and Patel/Narine (slow)
  • 2 allrounders: Yuvraj Singh and Ravindra jadeja
  • Wicketkeeper Batsman: Robin Uthappa
  • Captain: Rohit Sharma
  • Remaining Player: Ambati Rayudu

Six teams find representation. No players from RR and DD. Fantasy XI rules dictate that at least one member from each team and no more than 2 players from any team are selected. In that case, Shane Watson would replace Rohit Sharma as captain and Mohammad Shami would replace Malinga as the fast bowler.

Who contributed how much to the team?

There is a lot to not like IPL. There are also a few things that I like about a club based league. A dual round-robin home/away format is the obvious candidate. Combining players from across the globe is another. Above all it allows rookies to ply their trade in company of the veterans. I have maintained an IPL league table for the year 2012, 2013 & 2014 based on Ball Difference. Recently I noticed that Ball Difference page was referred by Wikipedia. The revision history shows:

Net run rate

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Apr 2012, user Mmitchell10 added a new section ‘Alternatives to NRR‘ to the NRR page where BD appears along with D/L, Average of the Match NRRs etc. That page does not refer to Computations for Ball Difference which clearly explains how to compute this value for an interrupted match. I conceived BD as an alternative to NRR during 2011 World Cup. Over the years, it has become the basic building block of my evolving player performance program. There are 100 points for every completed match. The points for each team are decided based on Ball Difference. In case of a tie both teams get 50 points. In case of a victory off the last delivery, the winning team earns a little over 50 points based on my ‘Points for 1 Run’ metric. After that an equation determines whether the match was won by batting side or bowling side. If both then margin for each unit is quantified. Team points are divided as Team Batting, Bowling and Fielding points. Batting points are distributed based on runs scored and balls used. Bowling points are based on overs bowled, runs conceded, number of wickets taken and when a wicket was taken. Fielding points are based on number of catches, stumpings and run outs. Instead of tabulating the results for each match, I create a chart and publish it on Twitter:

All charts for IPL2014 matches are here. 8 teams have played 14 matches each and it is time to represent the summary tables by team to supplement the match contribution tables. There is a vanilla and a value-added table for each team. The vanilla table is a bar chart representing total points earned by each player over 14 matches. It is ordered by typical batting position.

IPL14KXIP Blue bars represent batting points and red ones are for bowling. A typical winning combination will show some tall blue bars either for openers or the top middle order. Most of the runs should be scored by top 6. KXIP won 11 out of 14 matches where late order generally did not have to bat. In case 9, 10 & Jack were required to bat, they did not achieve much as can be seen by the absence of blue bars on the right hand side. IPL14KXIP-BW The value added chart shows the same information on secondary axis. The value added primary axis is reserved for average points per match. A black box with two whiskers is nothing but the Open, High, Low & Close chart for stocks. The four values used are Q1, Q3, G & µ. These 4 values were discussed in – Vijay Merchant’s G and Cyril Walters’ µ – my earlier post about dealing fairly with not outs in computing batting averages. Maxwell was the top performer with the tallest bar. He contributed heavily in a quarter of matches. The Q3 value represented by the top whisker is above 14 and stretches beyond the chart. He also failed in a quarter of matches contributing less than 3 points which is depicted by the lower whisker or the Q1 value. He earned above 108 points in 13 matches which means that he averaged 8.3 points per match. This is the Arithmetic Mean (µ) represented by the top of the box. But his Geometric Mean G is less than half at 3.5 which indicates that his performance varied a lot between matches. Vohra who played only 5 matches scored 40.7 points. His G & µ are much closer at 7.3 and 8.1 which indicates better consistency. IPL14KKR A team needs an in-form batsman, bowler and all-rounder. KKR found these in Uthappa, Narine and Shakib. Yusuf Pathan who scored over 50 points in 13 matches, earned most of those in a single match. His blitzkrieg in the 14th match ensured that KKR finish above CSK giving them two chances to qualify for the final instead of winning two play-off matches to reach the final. IPL14KKR-BW An inform batsman may add 100 or even more runs in a match with no restriction on the number of deliveries. But bowlers are restricted to 24 deliveries. This means that a very good performance by a bowler is worth only 10-15 points but a batsman can earn 20 or more in a match. This also means that the gap between G & µ will be wider between a batsman and a bowler. Notice the narrow box for Narine and compare it with the middle sized box for Shakib. Uthappa did remarkably well as a consistent batsman finishing with the highest value of G. Yet the difference between G & µ is wider than other two. 5 bowlers must bowl in a match where 2-3 batsmen can score all th runs. That is the nature of a limited overs match. IPL14CSK Smith, Jadeja, Ashwin, Raina and Mohit Sharma appeared in all 14 matches and performed above average in respective roles. Smith was their star performer and a little more contribution from the top order would have helped. IPL14CSK-BW Ashwin was very consistent similar to Narine – see how close G & µ are in his case. He took only 14 wickets compared to Jadeja’s 17 and Mohit’s 19. But the equations used in this model account for economy with respect to match figures. Hence he gets 76.5 bowling points compared to 67 and 64 points by Jadeja and Sharma. IPL14MI The tallest bar is only 80 points and that too from a bowler. This indicates that MI batsmen struggled to assert themselves. Just like Yusuf, Corey Anderson scored most of his batting points in a single but vital match. IPL14MI-BW All four teams had a star bowler who was consistent in his 24 ball spell. Harbhajan Singh’s contribution was lower in terms of overall points because his team did not do well enough. Had MI won more matches or improved on margin of victory, he would have earned more bowling points for exactly same bowling performance. His case highlights that this model emphasises us over me. Multiple players in a team performing well improve the total contribution for each performer – see Uthappa, Shakib and Narine above. IPL14RR 1 ball separated MI and RR which means not much separates the two teams. No one scored 80 points and the best pure batsman got less than 60 batting points. Bowlers can do only so much with the 4 over restriction so the top order must get in and then get going to consistently win matches. IPL14RR-BW Tambe was the best bowler for RR though less consistent than the other 4 discussed so far. But his achievements are of the highest order. He truly outperformed everyone else when we account for his age and international experience. IPL14SRH Bhuvnesh Kumar was the best bowler till the 13th round – Narine went past him after contrasting performances by these two in the final round. Steyn and Karn Sharma did very well to support him. SRH did not qualify because of the lack of blue colour in the middle of the chart. IPL14SRH-BW Warner did not get much support. If FInch and Dhawan had occupied the crease longer then things may have been different. IPL14RCB Gayle is the Bradman of Club T20. Perhaps not because he had such a poor series. Chahal was the standout performer for RCB in a team of superstars along with Starc who contributed a little with bat too. Yuvraj Singh was exceptinal at times and was the inspiraton to revive this IPL performance model after more than half the matches were concluded.

IPL14RCB-BW A G value around 2 points per match on the left side of chart underlines why RCB campaign failed. Yuvraj and de Villiers were better in the middle order but more T20 matches are won when top 3 contribute heavily.

IPL14DD

Duminy was the Shakib for DD but he did not get help from a star batsman and a star bowler. IPL14DD-BW Shami was fairly consistent for DD. Unfortunately he was consistently average. He did what was par but not as much as was expected of him.

An image to depict who contributed how much in a match

Yuvraj loses match and MotM despite scoring 83 in 38 and picking 4 out of 5 wickets to fall

Yuvraj loses match and MotM despite scoring 83 in 38 and picking 4 out of 5 wickets to fall

A player contributes extremely well with both and bat yet finishes on the losing side. Well in a team game individual heroics may not always lead to a win but why does the player fail to be awarded Man of the Match as a consolation? MotM is not necessarily awarded for being the best performer but an attempt should be made to quantify ‘who did how much’ in a cricket match. Yuvraj Singh scored 21.6 points out of 100, significantly outperforming James Faulkner who collected 11.9 points for his all-round display. Steve Smith scored more runs than James at a very similar strike rate so his batting performance is numerically better with 9 points compared to 8.8 by Faulkner. These three performances seen on the left hand side of above chart where grey shades depict a player in losing team.

Maxwell scored 95 in 43 and later Sunrisers limped to 121 collectively

Maxwell scored 95 in 43 and later Sunrisers limped to 121 collectively

It means that the blue bars represent victorious side. It is common to end on winning side when one player scores more than 20 points. Glenn Maxwell scored 95 in 43 balls which amounted to 26.5 points in a big win. The margin of victory was 43 (out of 120) balls displayed in red at top right corner. A batsman will certainly fetch a lot of points by scoring plenty of runs in less than half the balls. But the amount will depend on relative performance by others involved. Maxwell has become the top performer in IPL 2014 till date by scoring 95 runs in about 1/3rd of total scheduled balls in the match where entire opposition contributed only 121 runs.

Maxwell scored 95 in 43 but gets fewer points

Maxwell scored 95 in 43 but gets fewer points

So how good is 95(43) in a different situation? Well, Maxwell to the rescue. A few days earlier in the 3rd match of the season, he did exactly that while chasing 205. This time he gets only 15.7 points for scoring same number of runs at the same strike rate. Since the Ball Difference was a much lower 7 in this case compared to 43, the total points for his team Punjab were 53.02 out of 100. This information is presented in the third row of the chart.

How does scoring 40 in 13 compare with 90 in 38, numerically?

How does scoring 40 in 13 compare with 90 in 38, numerically?

Maxwell may have scored 90 or more twice, surely he can’t do it a third time? Looks like he can! In the return encounter, Chennai bowled first and Maxwell blasted another 90 in 38 against the Super Kings to earn 14.2 points. But the final tally of 231 included a late burst by Bailey who scored 40(13).  Is there a way to quantify their relative performance? Glenn scored 40.7% runs in 31.7% balls whereas George scored 18.1 in 10.8. Obviously, more points for more runs which should form the base value. And then a bonus based on higher strike rate. In this case, Maxwell earns 47.8% of batting points vis-a-vis 24.4 by Bailey. The winning margin of 12 was higher this time. There were more batting points to share out of 29.63, a number displayed in fourth line. But two more players Miller – 47(32) and Sehwag – 30(23) also did relatively well. That means batting points for these four – Maxwell 14.2, Bailey 7.2, Miller 4.5 & Sehwag 2.3.

Maxwell scores only 89 runs - shame on him!

Maxwell scores only 89 runs – shame on him!

Enough about Maxwell. Or perhaps not. In the 7th match against Rajasthan he scored 47% runs in 38% balls which indicates that he deserves a little more than 14.2 from the earlier mentioned performances. Total batting points are 28.08; lower than earlier match, but his share is 54% this time not 48%. That fetches him 15.2 points, It is clear that more runs do not mean more batting points. The margin of victory (or defeat) and relative performances matter in this zero sum game.

Tambe puts in the best bowling performance of the season

Tambe puts in the best bowling performance of the season

It is a batsman’s game where one can carry on after playing 24 balls. Can bowlers score as many points? Of course not. The points are split more evenly, generally between 5 main bowlers. But the bowling unit can get more points collectively if the opposition is dismissed cheaply in a straightforward win. In the 14th game Royals dismissed Challengers for 70. Batsman neither squandered the chance nor galloped to the target, reaching 71 in 13 overs. This was a very big win by a margin of 42 balls. And the credit goes to the bowling unit who collect 44.35 points out of 67.65 for the team. See the fifth row in the chart for team bowling points. Pravin Tambe picked up 4 wickets for 20 runs for the best performance by a bowler so far this season for which he gets 13.8 points. But Shane Watson who scored 24 in 24 and took a wicket for 5 runs in 2 overs manages to become the top performer of the match. The first bar represents his exploits where deeper blue represents batting and lighter shade is for bowling.

A bowler is the top performer based solely on bowling points

In the very next match, Sandeep Sharma did as well. Bowlers led Batsmen 38.62 – 22.76. Sandeep bowled his full quota conceding 21 runs to pick up 3 wickets. Akshar Patel joined him with figures of 4-16-2 – better economy but one less wicket. Independently Sharma picked up his wickets before Patel. This means that the second best bowling performance is worth 12.62 points compared to 9.86 by Patel. Patel scored 7 in 10 and took a catch as well. The second bar for Akshar in the chart shows three components – where the top deep blue hat represents 0.16 points for his fielding.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar earns praise from his partner Dale Steyn

Bhuvneshwar Kumar earns praise from his partner Dale Steyn

In another victory for bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the pack in defending 134. His figures of 4-14-4 are the third best. He gets 12.58 not far behind 12.62 by Sharma. He found support in Dale Steyn – 6.47 for 4-31-2, Karan Sharma – 6.07 for 4-20-1, Moises Henriques – 4.41 for 2-11-1 and Amit Mishra – 4.23 for 4-13-0. It is a toss-up between economy and wickets. A different set of weights may change the outcome somewhat. So I am content, but not fully satisfied, with the results at this point.

A Tie gets breaker in a T20 match

A Tie gets breaker in a T20 match

Every chart displays match summary in the title field. For game 19, it is – RR 152/5(20 ovs); kkr 152/8(20 ovs). Rajasthan won the one-over eliminator in this tied match. This extra information is not provided in the chart directly. The lower case used for team acronym in match summary provides this information indirectly. Also notice team names in second row where winning team always appears in the left column. 50 Team points each in a tied game and batting points always equal bowling points for both sides. Not unlike the very first chart, Shakib Al Hasan is the top performer in a grey shaded bar. Unlike Yuvraj SIngh his team did not lose the match. But a bowl-out or equivalent has always been a part of every tied T20 match. This fact is recognised by appropriately colouring the bars but not acted upon by awarding more team points to the victorious team.

Finch scored 6 of the last ball and Hyderabad won by 4 runs

Finch scored 6 of the last ball and Hyderabad won by 4 runs

A match need not end in a tie to finish on the very last ball. Team batting second could score the winning run on the very last scheduled delivery or team batting first may win by a margin that is less than the runs scored off the last delivery faced. In match #12, Aaron Finch scored a SIX of the last ball which Hyderabad eventually won by 4 runs. In such cases Ball Difference is 0 but the winning team always gets credit for scoring the extra run. Delhi Daredevils lose out to Sunrisers 49.86 – 50.14 in this case.

Hyderabad won by 8 wickets (D/L method)

Hyderabad won by 8 wickets (D/L method)

That brings us to the final paragraph – an interrupted match resolved by D/L method in the return fixture between same sides. This time, Daredevils batted first for entire 20 overs to score 143. Sunrisers were given a target of 43 in 5 overs. Naman Ojha scored 1, 6 & 6 in the 3 deliveries faced contributing 40% runs in 12% balls. That amounts to 12.37 points for a very short innings because always 100 points are split in result matches irrespective of overs bowled. Since batting and bowling sides of same team play different number of overs, the team points are split accordingly. For Sunrisers who bowled for entire 20 overs, bowlers get 36.35 points compared to 19.57 by batting unit. Similarly, 28,03 points awarded to Delhi batting unit compared to 15.09 for its bowlers. One last point, a summary of each player’s performance appears in red within each bar. Thus each image provides value added information from a scorecard – something that will fit in a tweet! https://twitter.com/MilPand/status/466618475965071360
