The IPL 2021 extravaganza has restarted again, now in Dubai, and it was time for me to crank up good ol’ GooglyPlusPlus2021. As in my earlier post, GooglyPlus2021 with IPL 2021 as it happens, during the initial set of IPL 2021 games,, a command script will execute automatically every day, download the latest data files, unzip, sort, process and put them in appropriate directories so that GooglyPlusPlus can work its magic on the data, with my R package yorkr. You can do analysis of IPL 2021 matches, batsmen, bowlers, historical performance analysis of head-to-head clashes and performances of teams.

Note: Since the earlier instalment of IPL 2021, there are 2 key changes that have taken place in GooglyPlusPlus.


a) All charts are interactive. You can hover over charts, click, double-click to get more details. To see more details on how to use the interactive charts, see my post GooglyPlusPlus2021 is now fully interactive!

b) You can now analyse historical performances, compute team batting and bowling scorecards for specified periods. To know details see GooglyPlusPlus2021 adds new bells and whistles!

You can try out my app GooglyPlusPlus2021 by clicking GooglyPlusPlus2021

The code for my R package yorkr is available at Github at yorkr

You can clone/fork GooglyPlusPlus2021 from github at gpp2021-6

IPL 2021 is already underway.

Some key analysis and highlights of the 2 recently concluded IPL matches

  • CSK vs MI
  • KKR vs RCB

a) CSK vs MI (19 Sep 2021) – Batting Partnerships (CSK)

b) CSK vs MI (19 Sep 2021) – Bowling scorecard (MI)

c) CSK vs MI (19 Sep 2021) – Match worm chart

Even though MI had a much better start and were cruising along to a victory, they lost the plot around the 18.1 th over as seen below (hover on the chart)


d) KKR vs RCB ( 20 Sep 2021) – Bowling wicket match

This chart gives the wickets taken by the bowler and the total runs conceded

e) KKR vs RCB ( 20 Sep 2021) – Match worm chart

This was a no contest. RCB batting was pathetic and KKR blasted their way to victory as seen in this worm chart

Note: You can also do historical analysis of teams with GooglyPlusPlus2021

For the match to occur today PBKS vs RR (21 Sep 2021) we can perform head-to-head historical analysis. Here Kings XI Punjab has been chosen instead of Punjab Kings as that was its name.

f) Head-to-head (PBKS vs RR) today’s match 21 Sep 2021

For the Rajasthan Royals Sanjy Samson and Jos Buttler have the best performance from 2018 -2021 as seen below

For Punjab Kings KL Rahul and Chris Gayle are the leading scorers for the period 2018-2021
