    Yank model: Challenger to the Duckworth/Lewis model

    Hello everyone,

    I and a friend of mine have developed a mathematical cricket model known as 'Yank Model' and have challenged the Duckworth/Lewis method. You can check our website at:
    Yank's Model

    We've covered plenty of examples in T20 and ODIs in our Comparative Analysis. We've also showed why our model is superior to the D/L and the VJD method and have also pointed the apparent flaws and inconsistencies of the 2 models. We also have done a real match simulation on the Champions League 2010 matches. But we still haven't put up the details on the computation part as we've not completed the process of patenting.

    I'd like the cricket fans from CricketWeb Website to have a look at our model and give us a feedback. I'd urge the readers to just see the situation and guess your own reasonable target before checking the targets of the 3 models - Yank, D/L and VJD, and then judge which is better. I'd urge readers to think in a cricketing manner and not just mathematically. As always, constructive criticisms and comments are welcome! Although we've put up our own comments regarding almost every example, you can always have a different opinion which we'd love to know. One thing I'd like to tell everyone is that I personally believe that our model has no or very little flaws because we've worked for about 4 months and identified flaws in the D/L and the VJD model and created a model accordingly based on real match data. But you're more than welcome to challenge this claim!

    Thanks,
    Yash

    Brilliant work! It obviously looks like you've done your research and the examples were very easy to follow and the scores for the Yank model look like they are more realistic.

    Is any of your research published in a peer-reviewed journal? Would like to have a read.

    We've just approached a few journals and it takes a long time for them to publish it....so guess you'll have to wait!

    @everyone: Thanks for the feedback!

    LOL....Any ideas if we can give our model to more than 1 research journal at a time??? Someone told us that we cannot give it to more than 1 reserach journal...is it true?

    Would like to see your model applied to more matches where D/L came into play. All of them if it at all possible. Would make interesting reading.

    Fantastic effort this, congratulations. Completely agree with some of your criticisms of D/L. In particular the case study where New Zealand could be 29/1 after 8 overs chasing 85 in a T20 game and be deemed the losers was ridiculous.

    Submitting to two journals at the same time is a big no-no.

    Yup. Big no-no. Fact of research life.

    Yeah we're planning to add more examples in the near future along with some real match simulation on other major tournaments like World Cup etc. also...

    @uppercut: Yes true.... D/L particularly fails in low scoring matches as per our research....
