The Super Kings overhauled the Daredevils’ total with some timely strikes from MS Dhoni in the final over to collect a precious two points at Feroz Shah Kotla. After conceding a lofty total to the potent Delhi lineup, the Super Kings’ eventually successful chase was powered by the tremendous partnership of Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum. By loading ball by ball match data into SAP HANA we can create insight-laden visualizations in SAP Lumira and SAP Crystal Reports to analyze Chennai’s victory.
With SAP Crystal Reports we can create a worm chart that shows each team’s cumulative score after each ball and when exactly their wickets were taken. The Super Kings hovered around Delhi’s pace for most of their chase but suffered a bit of a hiccup in 18th and 19th overs as their pace severely flattened. The Super Kings were fortunate enough to not lose a wicket until the 12th over which was essential in really establishing a firm foundation from their premier partnership of Smith and McCullum.
With SAP Lumira we can plot the number of runs each Super Kings batsman scored per ball during their successful chase. Note the great partnership of Smith and McCullum in green and blue respectively below. Also note the instant impact MS Dhoni made upon entering the crease to win the match for the Super Kings by mauling a pair of boundaries in the final over.
Dwayne Smith was honored as the Man of the Match as his 79 runs on 51 balls were instrumental in Chennai overhauling Delhi’s total. In SAP Crystal Reports we can plot the length and trajectory of every run scoring shot Smith struck during his innings by building a wagon wheel. Five of Smith’s eight maximums were smashed to his left while neither of the three fours Smith struck were sent forward.
