About

When you look at cricket league tables, you have to examine in detail the number of points for each team to get a good idea of how far each team is behind the leader, or indeed, how far the leader is in front of the rest.

This Cricket league table representation is a variant of the first attempt I had at these representations (football league tables). More detail can be found on the about pages.

The Cricket pages differ from the football pages in a few ways.

After making the F1 parser work with a web site (see F1 about page), I decided to just use the cricket section of the BBC web site as my source of information.

Data

I decided to not bother looking for an XML source of cricket data and just jump straight to using jsoup. For more on how this works, see jsoup on the F1 about section of this site.

How all these figures generate a map is explained on the about page.

Notes

The points for cricket differ from all the other leagues on this web site in taht a team can have a fractional number of points. For the LV= County Championship, this results because of fractional points deductions that can be given for anything from a slow bowling rate to badly prepared wickets.
