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(http://cricheet.org). 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.
