Cricket is a fascinating, frustrating, and complex game. Over its history, the game has witnessed many changes. New forms of playing have emerged, but we are stuck in old ways of thinking about it.
The Test format, the 50-over format, and the 20-over format of cricket need completely different strategies. Each resource and constraint the team has – time, wickets, dot balls, run rate, partnerships – takes on a unique significance depending on the format. Teams need to manage resources and constraints in line with the format. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy.
The economics of cricket, the strategies needed, and the business of cricket will be the focus of this webinar – particularly topical in these IPL times. This webinar will change the way you watch IPL.
Our speaker, Amit Varma, is a deep thinker of cricket strategy. A former managing editor of Cricinfo, Amit will talk about how he uses the tools of economics to arrive at a new strategic understanding of the game.
