XI. BUSINESS / SOCIAL IMPACT
As I am forecasting the predictive analysis of IPL, it will help the Sponsors to know whom they can sponsor and which players they can buy in auction.
XII. SCOPE OF FUTURE STUDY
I have taken only few factors as a predictor. but in cricket there are many factors which could have impact on a Match result. Player is one of those influencers. Every year IPL teams use to change their players; lots of new cricketer gets chances to play for the teams. So, in future studies Player can be used as a Predictor. Another important factor is pitch, in future pitch can be use as predictor. In this study I used only simple popular machine learning models, more complex models can be used to increase accuracy in future. Thus, using modelling effective decision-making can be accomplished through using tools and techniques in sports analytics.
Analytics can be used for Cricket match Prediction and its analysis in very easy way. For IPL game, Teams, Venue, Winning Toss, Venue of the Match and Decision after winning the toss are important influencers to win a match. Different Machine Learning helps to predict outcome of a match. Right selection of Machine Learning Model helps to increase Accuracy of Prediction. From Different machine learning Models, Sequential Model, Linear Regression and Random Forest are best to predict outcome of an IPL games. Sequential Model gives 91.3% accuracy. With this we can predict the IPL match score through machine learning models.
Extensive study about the topic was performed and various methodologies used in this domain were found. Predominantly there were two types of analysis: exploratory and predictive.
