Access from EThOS:
In this study, we investigate models for the prediction of match outcome. These models are then used to aid decision-making. In particular, we consider batting strategy in test cricket. This model provides decision support for a team that is aiming to set a target at declaration. We also develop a measure of the importance of a match in a tournament. Such a measure may be of use in tournament design.
