About the Book
This book contains a collection of articles that perform detailed analyis of cricketing legends past and present. The analyses have been done using my R package called cricketr (which I authored) , now available in CRAN. Details of how to use this package are included in the book. This R package is now in CRAN and uses the data from ESPN Cricinfo Statsguru. Analysis can be performed for Test, ODI and Twenty20 matches for both batsman and bowlers
