Cricket analytics with yorkr

About the Book

This book is based on my R package yorkr, now available in CRAN. In this book I discuss how this package can be used to analyze ODI and T20 cricket matches. yorkr is based on match data from Cricsheet( yorkr can analyze team performances as well as individual batting and bowling performances. Cricsheet has match data in yaml format and includes ball-by-ball details. Hence yorkr can provide insight on batting partnerships, bowling performances against a specific opposition or all oppositions.
