About

This blog is about applying my mathematical background to cricket. Statistics, data and modelling are my day job, while my hobby and passion is cricket.

In 2011 I built a test match simulator – which could predict the outcome of an innings from a given starting point, based on ball by ball probabilities, running the simulated innings enough times to get a reasonable sample. This was mainly for gambling, and it works.

Recently I’ve featured in the Daily Telegraph newspaper and on the Betfair Cricket Podcast (Cricket only Bettor).

You can find me on Twitter @edmundbayliss or get in touch via the Contact page.

Let’s see if I can come up with some original thoughts, and some predictions which stand the test of time.
