Today is revenge for Andy Dibble

Back in March 1990, current Burton Albion assistant Gary Crosby was playing for Forest against City and headed a ball out of the hand of City goalkeeper Andy Dibble. Today, it would be declared illegal, but the goal stood and led to a 1-0 Forest victory that day.

Video of the incident, featuring what sounds like a younger Martin Tyler and Gary Lineker doing post-match analysis:

Guardian article which educated me about it:
https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jan/08/gary-crosby-sir-alex-ferguson-burton-albion

So, if we get a good result today, this one's for Dibble.

Your most cringeworthy "Typical City" moments?

We all know that City are more popular than ever, and why not? We're Premier League champions! We have some of the greatest players in the world on our team, and we play entertaining football.

I doubt I'm alone in thinking that City have arrived as a force in world football and will likely remain a force for years to come. The thing is, this is City, and if any team can make a bollocks of the position we find ourselves in, it's us. Having seen plenty of our more calamitous moments first hand, I find that thinking back on where we were makes our current successes that bit sweeter.

So what are your favourite/funniest/most cringeworthy City moments?

I'll get the ball rolling with a vintage Andy Dibble moment.

Did Sachin Tendulkar really face the best bowlers while opening in ODIs? (A bored, lame analysis)

I thought about this when ESPNCricinfo talked about who was the better ODI opener, Sachin or Rohit and obviously people will gravitate to Sachin even though Rohit on paper has better stats.

The argument was that Sachin Tendulkar had to face better bowlers. So I'm going to see if that holds up. Did Sachin in fact face Akram, Donald, Waqar, Ambrose and McGrath more than Rohit faced Cummins, Starc, Steyn, Boult and whoever else, or is it a case of nostalgia?

Firstly both played in eras where it was easier to bat which was around the late 2000's to early 2010's compared to now and previous then. The 2 new balls have made it easier for Rohit and current batsmen, so let's take that into consideration.

Sachin Tendulkar - Most Matches Played Against - 124 matches @ Home

  • Australia - 63
  • Pakistan - 59
  • Sri Lanka - 56
  • South Africa - 39
  • New Zealand - 34
  • Zimbabwe - 26
  • Windies - 22
  • England - 21
  • B'desh - 9
  • Kenya - 8
  • UAE, Netherlands & Ireland - 2
  • Namibia - 1

So looking at this, the whole Sachin had to face Ambrose and Donald isn't that correct. Matches wise, That's only 61 matches, he opened against them. Tendulkar also got the benefit of facing Zimbabwe quite a bit which didn't always have the best attack & the same for NZ for a while. Surprisingly didn't face England that much. Australia is the obvious since Sachin played in 4 World Cups were he faced Australia (2007 excluded), and played tri series there as an opener in 1999/00, 2003/04, 2007/08, and 2011/12, which also inflated matches against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, the opponents of those series.

Rohit Sharma - Most Matches Played Against - 50 Matches @ Home

  • Australia - 30
  • South Africa - 21
  • West Indies - 19
  • New Zealand - 19
  • Sri Lanka - 17
  • B'desh - 9
  • England & Pakistan - 8
  • Zimbabwe - 5
  • Afghanistan, HK, Ireland and UAE - 1

Rohit on the other hand didn't get to face Pakistan much due to the political climate. What is surprising that he hasn't faced SL as much as previously thought. Australia isn't surprising but in the Top 4 teams he played against, they have had noted strong attacks.

----------------

Since I can't find a way to see who has bowled to Tendulkar or Rohit the most since ESPNCricinfo, Howzat and others have a limitation, I can do who has played in the most matches against Sachin and Rohit which sucks.

Bowlers that played the Most v. Tendulkar - Top 5

  • Muralitharan (SL) - 35 Matches - 3 Wickets - 63.00
  • Vaas (SL) - 35

Lessons from a Rookie Modeller (plus Academy 1:35 Abrams TUSK II Pics!)

To all the rookie modellers out there, drooling over the god-tier posts in this subreddit and scratching our heads and wondering how they pull it off,

I'm one of you! I feel where you're at, and, as much as I've improved since I've started, I'm still definitely not pro level. I started modelling about a year ago and, along with the tanks in the pics, I've got a few aircraft up at college that honestly aren't as cool as the tanks back here at home. I just put the finishing touches on an Academy 1:35 Abrams, and I thought it would be helpful to all of us novices out there to share some lessons learned from this build and others. So, in no particular order, here we go:

(If you came here for pics, scroll to the bottom)

  1. Start simple: I started with armor because it's very, very hard to screw up a tank. Planes are clean and sleek; tanks are getting rolled through mud, covered in dust clouds, shot at, bombarded, hit by landmines, dug into entrenchments, etc. If you make mistakes when you're starting out (which we all do), they're not too hard to incorporate into the "story" of the vehicle. A nick in a panel can be a shell fragment impact, for example. Tanks, especially Tamiyas, are pretty simple to get together. In short, they're forgiving and straightforward. 1:35 is the way to go on armor; it's big enough to make assembly easier.
    1. Fundamentals first: Learning how to cut, sand, file, and glue parts together accurately comes first, then basic, solid painting and basic weathering. Focusing on these first will get you spectacular results. Leave the crazy stuff for later!
  2. Be patient: This isn't a race, as much as I make it one too often. Plan a few steps ahead and think about not just getting the pieces together, but how you'll paint it down the line, etc. It's way easier to paint small parts off a kit. Time is on your side. Wait for layers of paint and glue to dry completely before moving on, and test fit pieces and make sure everything aligns before you glue something in place. Make sure that you're sanding and fitting pieces properly. In short, don't cut corners, and take a second to consider what you're doing.
  3. Don't skimp on the essential supplies: You don't need to go wild with the huge variety of airbrushes, weathering tools, etc. out there, but you shouldn't skimp on the fundamental tools that you'll be using over and over again in this hobby. A good X-Acto knife, some model glue, some PVA glue for

Immaculate Inning Research

Updated to include Kevin Gausman on August 18th, 2019, Chris Martin on September 11,2019, and Will Harris On September 26, 2019.

I went through every immaculate inning in MLB history to do some research on if having an immaculate inning was related to having a good game. I found each pitchers’ stats in the game they had an immaculate inning. Then did calculations to find the total WHIP and ERA of all the games combined. I also included how many times each team has thrown an immaculate inning. There is a list of pitchers that have thrown more than one immaculate inning in their career. If I’m missing anything or did something wrong, then let me know and I’ll try to add it. So, now for an excessive amount of knowledge you never needed to know.

100 total immaculate innings in MLB history:

  • 37 immaculate innings since 2010
  • 14 from 2000-2009
  • 18 in the 1990s
  • 4 in the 1980s
  • 8 in the 1970s
  • 8 in the 1960s
  • 11 before 1960

#Wins, Losses, Saves, Holds

  • 41 wins
  • 16 losses
  • 10 saves
  • 3 holds
  • 9 no-decisions
  • 21 others (can be found at bottom of full stats)

#Combined Totals (by decade available in Full Stats)

  • 480 IP
  • 324 Hits
  • 111 BB
  • 130 ER
  • 654 K

#WHIP, ERA, K/9

  • 0.91 WHIP
  • 2.44 ERA
  • 12.26 K/9

K/9 is likely inflated because of the circumstances of an immaculate inning.

  • All-time averages: 1.36 WHIP, 3.85 ERA, 5.05 K/9

#WHIP, ERA, K/9 by decade

  • 2010-current 0.82 WHIP, 2.02 ERA, 13.77 K/9, (Decade average: 1.31 WHIP, 4.06 ERA, 7.83 K/9)
  • 2000-2009 1.03 WHIP, 3.28 ERA, 12.41 K/9 (Decade average: 1.40 WHIP, 4.43 ERA, 6.62 K/9)
  • 1990s 0.94 WHIP, 2.78 ERA, 11.75 K/9 (Decade average: 1.40 WHIP, 4.29 ERA, 6.19 K/9)
  • 1980s 0.60 WHIP, 0.42 ERA, 10.38 K/9 (Decade average: 1.41 WHIP, 3.87 ERA, 5.39 K/9)
  • 1970s 1.11 WHIP, 3.54 ERA, 16.71 K/9 (Decade average: 1.34 WHIP, 3.70 ERA, 5.16 K/9)
  • 1960s 0.79 WHIP, 1.40 ERA, 11.79 K/9 (Decade average: 1.33 WHIP, 2.69 ERA, 5.94 K/9)
  • Pre 1960 1.06 WHIP, 3.19 ERA, 8.04 K/9 (Time period average: 1.36 WHIP, 3.61 ERA, 3.46 K/9)

#Immaculate Innings by Team

Banned: The Sad Story of the 500 Cheaters

Escapers!

Well, there is no story to it. They get BANNED! Below, you will find the 500 sad souls that were taken by the hammer that swings every day. This is a list of players that were banned recently due to cheating in Escape from Tarkov. Although we do not take player reports currently, we are actively monitoring and taking actions against those who cheat. So the lesson of the day, we take fair play seriously, do not cheat, do not get banned, and play the game fair.

Also, note that bans are final and they also come in a bundle with forum and support center ban. Thank you!

Bowlers to watch for next year's World Cup

After yesterday's post about batsmen, I've put together a similar post but with some slightly left-field statistics for bowlers. Again, those who are highly-ranked in most categories are those who are most likely to perform well.

In all cases, statistics used are for all ODIs since the last World Cup. To qualify, a bowler must have bowled in at least 20 innings in this time.

Measure 1: Average Spell

By calculating the average spell for the player across all the innings in which they have bowled, this should give a fair reflection of what we can expect from them.

Player Average Spell
1 Rashid Khan ^(AFG) 2/34 (8.4)
2 Mujeeb-ur-Rahman ^(AFG) 2/36 (9.3)
3 Jasprit Bumrah ^(IND) 2/38 (8.2)
4 Mustafizur Rahman ^(BAN) 2/38 (8.1)
5 Safyaan Sharif ^(SCO) 2/38 (8.0)
6 Yuzvendra Chahal ^(IND) 2/42 (9.0)
7 Kuldeep Yadav ^(IND) 2/43 (9.2)
8 Imran Tahir ^(RSA) 2/43 (8.5)
9 Chris Woakes ^(ENG) 2/43 (8.2)
10 Hasan Ali ^(PAK) 2/43 (8.1)
12 Josh Hazlewood ^(AUS) 2/46 (9.2)
13 Akila Dananjaya ^(SRI) 2/46 (9.0)
19 Trent Boult ^(NZL) 2/49 (9.0)
61 Ashley Nurse ^(WIN) 1/42 (8.3)

Conclusions:

  • Afghanistan's pair of young spinners are almost uniquely potent in helpful conditions. Mujeeb in particular refuses to leak runs.
  • India has a very well-rounded ODI bowling attack.
  • West Indies don't have a single bowler who can regularly take wickets.

Measure 2: Big Hauls

In all forms of cricket, the best way of keeping the runs down is to get the batsmen out. A four-wicket (or more) haul will usually have a significant impact upon the match in question.

Player Innings per haul
1 Matt Henry ^(NZL) 6.00
2 Rashid Khan ^(AFG) 6.25
3 Pat Cummins ^(AUS) 6.75
4 Mustafizur Rahman ^(BAN) 6.80
5 Trent Boult ^(NZL) 6.83
6 Chris Woakes ^(ENG) 6.83
7 Liam Plunkett ^(ENG) 7.17
8 Mujeeb-ur-Rahman ^(AFG) 7.67
9 Akila Dananjaya ^(SRI) 7.67
10 Barry McCarthy ^(IRE) 7.67
11 Kagiso Rabada ^(RSA) 8.67
15 Hasan Ali ^(PAK) 9.50
17 Jasprit Bumrah ^(IND) 10.25
24 Carlos Brathwaite ^(WIN) 12.00

Conclusions:

  • I have just found another reason to love Matt Henry.
  • India is less dependent on individual bowling brilliance because of their tendency to work well as a unit where most members will pick up two wickets or so.
  • West Indies do
