Trends Analysis: Do bowlers still rule over batsmen for SuperCoach points?
The sample size of two rounds of SuperCoach BBL is small. It’s hard to pick up trends. It’s hard to judge form. It’s tough to predict if Round 1 or 2 performers are going to be consistent. There’s a lot of guessing games right now.
But further analysis of the first two rounds shows there is some compelling data which SuperCoaches must keep in mind, particularly with the new scoring system.
The new scoring system has copped a bit of flak, particularly the batsman’s strike rate bonus which only kicks in once a player reaches 20 (Colin Ingram owners will still be fuming with his 19 on Saturday!).
Essentially the new system was brought in to provide more balance between batsmen and bowlers and there are some interesting early notable effects.
Honeyball has taken a look at the key Round 1 and 2 data around the top scoring players.
