Re: The Big 'Do Averages make a difference to youth pull' Survey

The way I figure it is that batting, bowling and fielding is all likely to follow roughly the same distribution, whatever it may be. If it's what I suspect it is for batting (average usually correlates with current skill while potential is mostly random) then it's probably similar for bowling and f...

Re: The Big 'Do Averages make a difference to youth pull' Survey

Just a reminder for everyone that it would be best to post full information if at all possible: average, skill and potential in batting, bowling and fielding. Firstly, it gives more data (for poor averages as well as good ones, which is important for comparison). Secondly, incomplete data is a bit ...

Bin Training in the Offseason

Its bit rubbish isn't it ?

Nobody likes plops. We had 1 pop and 2 plops this week. Lets just have a week off in the off-season and then the first coaching off last season will pick up the W14 SOD game so everyone has a 'normal' week in terms of possible games.

Re: Plopping skills

For anyone who's interested in tracking this Shyam Siddhi is 23 years old. Wasn't on coaching, played & batted in all the games he could have played this week - 1 T20 +2 OD - and still plopped in batting skill. Appears reasonable to assume that if a player is close to his potential, he is losin...

Re: Season 21 League Matches

Well our team fluffed its lines today but thanks to Procrastinators holding off HalfDecent, we are English SOD champions and the first team ever to win it three times on the bounce. Well done us :thumbup: Might be as good as it gets for us though (or this team anyway) - Saklani looks set to join the...

Re: Season 21 League Matches

Big win against HalfDecent on their dustbowl has put us in a good position for 3 in a row. 6 points ahead with better run rate. Probably just need one more win but still time for us to throw it away.

Re: The Big 'Do Averages make a difference to youth pull' Survey

It's a good idea. Just thinking it's not difficult to work with more finely grained data. Why not request two data points - Reported batting average, and - actual batting potential. With a decent sample it won't be hard to run a simple correlation, no more work than your group data idea. Maybe Conf...
