    Obvious one, to measure performance
    - 50’s and 100’s - Runs per over
    - Strike rate: batting and bowling - Game winning performances
    Break down the players game to show both strengths and weaknesses
    - Batting (strike rate): – spin versus seam

    Measure progress - year to year
    - average team scores : -for and against
    - wins and losses : - home and away
    - batting first and second
    Evaluate Performance
    - break game into phases
    - good against seamers, weak against spin
    - wicket clusters
    Making of Game Plans
    - based on above, attack seamers to allow caution against spin
    - plan to consolidate after loss of a wicket

    - work on playing spin
    - use tests to measure progress
