Access from EThOS:
Professional cricket is a sport rich in readily available data and provides fertile ground for the analysis of a wide range of economic issues. Despite this, until recent years there has been a relatively sparse amount of academic research into the economics of cricket compared to other sporting activities. This thesis considers four issues relevant to English professional cricket: player movement and exit behaviour; the impact of toss and weather on championship outcomes; the effect of central contracts on county productivity; relative age effects in professional cricket.
