This week on The Cricket Pod, cricket analyst and statsman Freddie Wilde talks about the growing importance of analytics in the game today. Wilde addresses the question whether there is a risk of data over-complicating what is already a complex sport, even as it undoubtedly helps to raise its competitive level.

While explaining the nature of his work in collaboration with news services, as well as team managements, he also lists out his takeaways from the recently-concluded Cricket World Cup and what surprised him about the tournament.
