We keep a close eye on the performance of the CricViz models and review them regularly. We have made a recent change to our white ball model that produces WinViz and PredictViz in T20 and ODI cricket.
After a period of observation we have implemented an improvement that prevents unjustified certainty in specific circumstances.
We are happy to receive feedback and will engage in the conversation of what makes a good model and what should be taken into account.
Our aims with WinViz and PredictViz are to engage new fans and produce talking points during matches. The free app benefits users if it is as accurate as possible and constructive debate is clearly in our interests.
CricViz has covered all three formats of the game, providing analysis of matches played in seven countries. All series are stored in the app and allow users to look at historical projections through the slider function in each game’s timeline. These are freely available, a resource that fuels the constructive debate that we welcome.
The white ball WinViz model takes into account the career records of players, historical data from the venue and host country and the current match situation. We are building a large database of live in-game analysis, ongoing examination of which helps our team to make the necessary improvements to models.
The red ball model is produced differently and is unchanged.
