  • The simulation programs are the cornerstone
    of the Tournament Simulation and Daily Predictor analysis. If the simulation
    program platform stands on four legs, one of the legs is the Recent Form, which
    plays a very important part in the way the simulation results go. In an earlier
    article, I had already looked at the way the RF analysis is being done. In this
    article I will explain how specific World Cup performances are weighted
    strongly, viz., 20%, to have a profound influence on the simulation results.

     

    To explain this, I will look at four
    players: a batsman and bowler who have hit the zone during the initial phase of
    round-robin matches, and a batsman and bowler who have not done so well. This
    will explain clearly how this important measure works.

  • India's victory over Ireland in Bangalore shows
    how far the popular, and tough, Irish have come in the ICC Cricket World Cup
    2011.

     

    Two weeks ago, this game would have been
    regarded as a pushover, as a gentle walk in the park, as two points in the
    bank. As it turned out, the two points arrived but as the Castrol Index worms
    constantly kept telling us, there were moments when we couldn't be sure. That
    is not only a tribute to the challengers but also an indictment of India's
    position.

     

    When India lost Sachin Tendulkar and Virat
    Kohli fairly quickly together, you will see the worms fairly interlocked. That
    is a fair assessment because the track was slow, the Irish were handling what
    seemed like thin resources pretty well and India was really an accident away
    from being in trouble. The final result suggests a relatively easy win but that
    is the result of a ferocious assault by Yusuf Pathan; it was more difficult
    than that.

     

    And yet, while that shows up bowling and
    fielding weaknesses,
