Hi,

There is a new book on Amazon Kindle called "Cricket-Metrics".

It provides some detailed analysis on topics such as:

Whether the follow-on should be enforced?
Why captains should not necessarily bat when they win the toss?
How batsmen can do something in their first 10 deliveries to increase their batting average by 15%?
Why scoring rates are just as important as runs scored?
How many runs teams should set as a target in the fourth innings?


The book raises some interesting points such as why do batsmen sit idly inside the dressing room before they go out to bat instead of doing activities to prepare them to bat (like all other sports)? Why it is possible to score 200 runs less in the first innings but increase the teams winning percentage.

Interested in your thoughts.
