Abstract

The Bangladesh Cricket Team has performed well in the recent past with steady traits of improvement. Apart from the players’ performance, some external factors are associated with the outcome of a cricket match. This paper investigates prematch toss, batting sequence, match time, opposition team’s origin and time (in years) as independent factors influencing the performance of the Bangladesh team. Outcomes of 314 One Day International (ODI) matches were fitted with a typical logistic regression model and modified Poisson model to explore the association of these factors with match results. Both models showed consistency, although the logistic model outcomes were extreme with wider confidence intervals for odds ratios, compared to the risk ratios of the modified Poisson regression model. Bangladesh, a country where cricket reflects nationalism, has shown significant improvement over time. They tend to perform better in day matches, play superior cricket against non-Asian teams and take full home advantage.
