- ODI scorecards from 2005 to date are parsed to rate every win shares performance.
- Scorecard information is sourced to generate an accurate assessment of each player's performance.
- Match results are used to generate team ratings. Peak ratings are identified by checking if the rating before and after the particular match considered is lower.
- Fielding performances are evaluated by parsing detailed text commentary. More detail here.
- Win shares are calculated by attributing over-by-over team match odds changes to the appropriate player.
- Players lose 1% of their live rating if they miss a team match. This is to ensure injured or dropped players do not stay high in the ratings without playing matches.
- Current Best/Worst ODI Win Shares:
This is evaluated using a weighted average of a player's win shares. More weight is given to recent performances with past performances diminishing in value with time. Unestablished players that have played less than 20 matches are penalized to avoid cases where a few highly rated matches can catapult a newer player to the top of the pile.
- Best/Worst ODI Win Share Careers:
This evaluates overall careers by calculating the average match win shares of each player, with a bonus given to career longevity (where playing the most number of years while missing the least percentage of matches gets the most credit) and a penalty for careers of less than 100 matches (increasing penalty for lower matches played).
