Mumbai, Jun 19 (UNI) Criccontest.com, a contest based cricket website and renowned cricket statistician Mohandas Menon have joined hands to launch the criccontest.com premier cricket ratings for Tests, ODIs and T-20.
The ratings have been devised by Mohandas Menon, former official statistician of the BCCI and will be updated fortnightly, Anoop Wadhwa, founder of criccontest.com said in a release issued here today.
Mr Wadhwa said, ''Today's cricketers are a competitive lot and their level of competency is tested to the utmost level. It is therefore necessary, that he be proficient, skillful and consistent in all forms of the game. Hence we feel that the more precise way of selecting the top ten batsmen and bowlers on the current circuit is by simply combining their performances in Tests, ODIs and T-20 in our all new criccontest.com ratings,'' ''What we have tried here, is to put a player's recent form into perspective by limiting his performances to the last ten innings, that is spread over a period of 12 months. This definitely will provide an accurate insight into a player's recent record,'' he said.
The criccontest Cricket Rating uses a mean average formula for the batsmen, wherein the mean of Strike Rate and Average is taken into account, while for the bowlers, strike rate is used for the rankings. For the team ratings, criccontest.com will use the win-loss ratio. For Tests, batting average is taken into account for calculating the ratings for batsmen, while for the bowlers strike-rate holds the key, the release added.
