The tool does a couple of things:
- predict which team is going to win the ODI. Predictions start off once the toss is done and continue in real-time throughout the match. Predictions are based on historical data - approximately 300 matches and 500 variables - and are continuously updated to reflect recent performance.
- help a team plan its strategy on a real-time basis so as to ensure a win.
