A brief look at two finalist who had consistent success throughout the tournament
We look at those two key indicators % C6 and % L 5/wkt to measure success in batting/bowling
Both C 6 and L 5/wkt have been the key difference in winning and losing in this IPL.
% C 6 represents consecutive overs (back to back) that fetched 6+ R/O
% L 5/wkt represents over that went for < 5 Runs and featured >1 wkt (all type).
Now let us see “gap factor” of these two indices
A gap factor is Bat minus Bowl, and vice versa
For e.g in the last encounter between CSK v GT (playoff)
CSK scored 172 that had 59 % of its overs in C 6, and in reply GT had 40.91% – The gap for CSK is 18.11%
L 5 /Wkt
CSK had 2 overs that fetched 5 or less runs/ wkt = 2/20 =10%
GT had 4 overs that fetched 5 or less runs/wkts = 4/20 18.20
Therefore the gap for CSK is 8.35%
