Superstats – a new metrics for cricket

Superstats – a new metrics for cricket

A new metrics to analyse the game of cricket called Superstats has been launched by ESPN and Indian Institute of Madras.

What is Superstats?

It is a combination of three stats that uses Data Science for the first time to give context in every game:

  1. Luck Index
  2. Forecaster
  3. Smart Stats

Luck Index:

Luck Index is a metric that quantifies luck. This is done by identifying every lucky event that happens in a match, and then calculating, through a complex algorithm, the run value of that event.

Forecaster:

The following factors are taken into account when calculating the predicted score:

  1. Batting strength of the team (including batsmen to follow, at every stage of the innings).
  2. Bowling strength of opposition.
  3. Batsman v bowler head-to-head numbers.
  4. Phase-wise strike rates and economy rates for batsmen and bowlers.

Based on these factors, there is an expected score for the batting team at every stage. The win percentage for the chasing team also takes into account the team momentum (runs and wickets off the last six balls), and the historical probability of teams winning from that position.

Smart Stats:

Smart Stats, launched at first as a standalone tool in 2018, isa suite of metrics that help fans judge performances in limited-overs cricket, especially the T20s, in a far more nuanced manner than conventional metrics do.

It takes into account the context to every performance, batting and bowling. Context includes pitch conditions, quality of opposition, and match situation – in terms of the pressure on the player.
