INTRODUCTION

2

In this research, we have tried to find out how batting
strike rate of players affected the performance of the
team in the game in ICC World Cup 2015. For this, we
have collected data from secondary sources, which is
continuous ratio data. The data collected has been
shown with the help of various statistical tools like
graphs and charts and finally conclusion has been
drawn.
*Continuous data can take any value in a given range
*Ratio data have absolute values.

OBJECTIVES • To find out whether consistency in batting strike rate leads to winning the game 3 7/14/15 .

4 Proposition • Consistent scores and high average run scored per team i.e. with least fluctuations in strike rate leads to success in the game. 7/14/15 ..

5 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY • In order to fulfil our research objectives we did a causal research where we have found out a cause and effect relationship 7/14/15 .

COM.. ICC-CRICKET.6 Sources of data  Data have been collected from secondary sources from the official cricket world cup 2015 website i. 7/14/15 .  For tabulation and calculation MS-EXCEL is used.e.

• For New Zealand there were 11 regular players and 1 substitute player. • For India there were 11 regular players. 7/14/15 .SAMPLE SIZE 7 • Four teams consisting of eleven players each including substitute players for some matches. • For South Africa there were 11 regular players and 3 substitute players. • For Australia there were 11 regular players and 3 substitute players.

Data analysis • We have used microsoft excel to generate useful information from the raw data gathered from the website and the calculation is done through formulas of mean and standard deviation . 8 7/14/15 .

MATHEMATICAL FORMULAS 9 Where. σ = standard deviation xi = each value of dataset x (with a bar over it) = the arithmetic mean of the data (This symbol will be indicated as mean from now) N = the total number of data points Calculation of standard deviation is important to correctly interpret the data. *The mean is the average of the numbers.  7/14/15 strike rate= (68/49) * 100 = 138. For example. in physical sciences. To calculate strike rate:  Strike Rate = (runs made by batsman) / (total balls faced)*100  eg:  if MSD made 68 runs in 49 balls then. a lower standard deviation for the same measurement implies higher precision for the experiment.7755 .

7/14/15 .LIMITATION 25 • We have undertaken the research using only four teams due to which the aspect cannot be generalized but we tried to show a comparative fluctuation.

CONCLUSION 26 • After statistical analysis of the data we can put forward our proposition in a modified form as “A consistent maintenance of high strike rate by an individual player per game leads to success.” 7/14/15 .
