              One of the bestselling authors of Soccernomics, Stefan Szymanski, teams up with the award-winning cricket writer Tim Wigmore (Cricket 2.0) and together they have turned their attention to cricket: the result is an enlightening, surprising and enjoyable read. Crickonomics answers ...those questions you have about the sport, and many more that you haven't: you'll be delighted to know all the answers. Will Test cricket die? Why is the Indian Premier League the most important competition in cricket? Why is cricket plagued by match fixing - is the problem getting better or worse? Will India's cricketing wealth make it the dominant cricket nation in the future, and can the world of cricket expand beyond its traditional strongholds? These are the questions many fans ask. This book answers them and many more besides. Cricket is an old and venerable game that has undergone dramatic changes in recent years. Many of these changes can be traced back to two sources: money and data. The rise of Indian cricket, and especially the Indian Premier League, has brought billions of dollars into a sport that was once the poor cousin of professional team sports. Cricket is also now part of the data revolution that has affected all sports. Just as Soccernomics did for football, this book will take a rational look at the game of cricket, past and present, and combine the expertise of an award winning cricket journalist with a leading sports economist, to provide startling insight and clear-headed analysis. Crickonomics will take readers on a journey across the world of cricket, covering a rich and eclectic range of topics - answering questions that readers always had, and opening their eyes to new issues.
