New cricket statistics website

Post by Andy » Fri, 30 Dec 2005 21:58:56


I'd like to introduce a new cricket website we have built at
www.testmatchstats.com.

It contains details of all completed Test matches and one-day
internationals and has a very simple to use interface that allows you
to analyse the data in many different ways.

We've also begun to collect individual memories and reminiscences from
people who saw the games - either at the ground or on television.
Please feel free to add your contribution.

I hope you find the site useful if you have any cricketing statistical
questions.

Regards

Andy Butland

Hi JC

Presume you mean the Aussie summer?  Can see you're right - will chase
up our scorer!  The plan is that we will have the matches in within 24
hours of them finishing, so hopefully we'll get up to speed shortly
once the Christmas break is over...

This -
http://www.testmatchstats.com/team_analysis.asp?TeamID=AUS&Opponent=E...
- should give you the stats for the Ashes series just gone though, with
the most recent Australian results we have.

Regards

Andy

Nice site...I will take time to fill in
comments on Test matches I remember.

I was loking for partnerships...
Is there a way of listing all 100 partnerships,
registered by a team in its Test history?

When I try to perform Player Analysis, it only seems
to provide a list of England players, starting with
Vaughan, MP

I suggest you think of an alternative to the "drop-down"
control for selecting players. In Microsoft parlance, a
drop-down Combo might be more practical. You might
also have an additional control to select the team
and restrict the player list to the team selected, if any.

Also, when I tried to switch the Team for Team analysis
from England (again the default), to India, the whole
page changed to a different look-n-feel and even the
site address changed. A very disconcerting experience.

There is no mechanism on the site for providing feedback.
Is RSC your prefered medium for feedback?

Vijay

Got some useful filters and good *** stats.

Is the 'Player Head to Head' supposed to accept individual players?

I think, that it's one of the very good site.
Can I ask for drag and drop?
What type of features are in mind?

Thanks for the comments all.

Vijay - the glitch on switching the team has been fixed, thanks for
pointing that out.  Thanks for the useful feedback on the interface.
Feedback can be sent via the email addresses on the front page

alvey - no, "Player Head to Head" is when you are comparing player's
against each other, rather than looking at the record of a particular
player which is done via "Player Analysis".  So questions like "Who are
the top run scorers in Tests?" rather than "How many runs did Boycott
score in Tests?"

artist - a drag and drop interface is quite tricky to do on the web, so
we probably won't be changing from the current set up too
significantly.  We're hoping the interface we've devloped gives the
right balance between being comprehensive and easy to use, but no doubt
will have some tweaks to make as the site develops and we get feedback
from the various users.

Regards

Andy

AndyB - great effort, no doubt.

How is this better than CI's online DB?
