It looks like Connor bowls overs 76, 78, 80, 82, and 84 consisting of 2 maidens, and then overs of 1, 1, and 4 runs, however Connor didn’t bowl overs that conceded those runs in that order. She does bowl a single maiden (her 5th over) followed by overs of 1, 1, and 4 runs and then follows that with another maiden. “Moving” that second maiden to directly follow the first “fixes” the ball by ball data, correcting the balls faced by the Australians. Gggrrrrrrr. 2/2

I’ve been using the awesome scorebook data from Women’s Cricket History (womenscrickethistory.org/Score ) to try to recreate the ball-by-ball data for the 2nd Women’s Ashes Test from 2002/03 (espncricinfo.com/series/englan) but I’ve hit an issue. I can’t reconcile the balls faced by Sthalekar and Rockwell (or be consistent with the over-by-over scores) without reordering the overs bowled by Clare Connor. 1/2

I’ve written an update on some of things that have happened with Cricsheet in the last month or so, including the addition of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy data, and some previously missing Tests from 2003 and 2004. cricsheet.org/article/monthnot

Thanks to a kind email pointing me to Cricket Australia ball-by-ball commentary for the 2011 Women’s Test I’ve finally been able to resolve the discrepancies in the data, meaning that later today I’ll finally be able to add the match to the site.

This is only the 10th Women’s Test match I’ve been able to source, but does mean I’ve managed to get 10 of the last 12 Tests. I’ll keep digging on the others.
