Visitors: 180

Someone rightly said that statistics are like bikinis, what they reveal is suggestive and what they hide is vital. Now if you talk about cricket stats, you will always find players claiming saying that cricket stats is something the never excites them and that it is of very little significance to them. People say all kinds of things especially sports stars, but all of us know that anyone who has any kind of record or statistics in their name undoubtedly feels good about the whole thing. On closer examination of statistics you will find many facts being revealed to you which may not have been visible otherwise. Cricket stats are vital for making strategies to take on any opposition on the field. In fact stats reveal such things which a person himself may not have been aware of, so imagine how crucial this can be for making strategies.

There are many sources through which one can come to know about the statistics, but they must be cautious about the authenticity of the information. Statistics recognized by the International Cricket Council or ICC are the ones that are authentic. If you take a close look at the cricket stats you can suddenly see and come up with new factors that you never knew before. Suppose you are a bowler and are struggling to get one particular batsman of the opposing team out, there is a solution for this. Take a close look at the cricket stats of that batsman, if possible see and find out his modes of dismissals. May be you will find that he has been dismissed in a particular way a number of times. That’s your answer, just watch the video clippings of how he was dismissed, now you know his weakness, you can easily attack him there. It just takes some careful examination and a little thinking to make things right when you are playing the game.

Cricket fans are of different types, there is one that loves to watch just any match the is going on, the other variety is the one that will watch only one Day International matches while some fans will watch the traditional form of game, i. e. test match cricket. There are also some cricket fans that are the so called statistically inclined fans. They are the ones who put lot of weight on the cricket stats and before the start of any event they will carefully examine all the cricket stats and find out what new achievements a cricketer or his team can make in the field.

When you talk about cricket stats there are many things that are associated with this. Cricket stats talk about many things other then the batting and bowling averages of a player. But as mentioned earlier you will need a really sharp mind and to find out exactly what you are looking. Obviously when you are looking at cricket stats you are trying to find out something which is not so obvious, it’s more like reading between the lines rather then seeing the writing on the wall.
