If you love baseball (dare I say, CRICKET), you will love this episode that talks about intersection of data and sport.

Jarrod Kimber is an award winning documentary film maker. From humble beginnings in Melbourne to becoming a well known sports writer and documentary film maker, Jarrod has constantly used data to point to the fallacies, assumptions and substantiate where the game should go.

His writings are so data driven, yet simple to read that it comes across like a scientific paper – Aim, Hypothesis, Methods of data collection, Results, Discussion and Conclusion. While sports reporting was headline and story driven, Jarrod’s data driven approach made the readers, sports administrators, coaches and players sit up. It produced a new meaning for data driven decision making in sport.

If you love sport and science, this episode is one for you.

DISCLAIMER: There will be an education about cricket for you as well.
