Cricket has become integral part of our day to day life. Kids often are so obsessed with the game, that they know so much about the player. From the players batting average, wickets taken, the pitch that he plays well. Can this love for cricket be used to introduce them technology and statistics? From predicting the possibility of CSK to win the IPL 2018, to choosing the right team to the right pitch, statistics has played a significant role.
Statistics as a tool is misunderstood. With Data collection and Data processing skyrocketing every year, the need and statistics is growing more than ever. It has been victimised in the battle of Science and Commerce streams. Though it is significant in both the streams, but in our school system it has been taught deeper only in Commerce or Economics.
