The 2017 Champions Trophy was won by Pakistan in a final against India on 18 June at The Oval.
During the tournament, there were nine games completed without reference to Duckworth-Lewis-Stern scores. My record of these nine games is:
From these data, my median profiles of winners and losers were:
I was interested to look at the performance of Pakistan and India against these profiles to reflect on where the final might have been won or lost.

I have been following the #MohaliGateHomework discussions on Twitter.
Events surrounding the exclusion of four players from the Third Test in India have helped me focus my thoughts on the distinctions between leadership and management.
I am trying really hard to see both sides of the story but like Jim Maxwell wonder if “it seems a dramatic thing to do on tour when perhaps it could have been sorted out in a less public way”.
At a time of poor team performances in both tests in India, I am assuming that there must have been a tipping point for this decision. Cricket Australia’s position is stated here. I thought that might have come after the First Test.
The Roar has some interesting exchanges about the exclusions. One comment included:
Back at #MohaliGateHomework:
I had hoped there might be opportunities on a long overseas tour for coach, captain and team to come closer together. I think England manged this on their tour of India.
I am left pondering about the energies that drive a centripital momentum in a team (coming together to be greater than the sum of its parts) and avoid centrifugal forces (that lead to a team being less than the sum of its parts).
I wish everyone well in transforming performance. I do hope that a line in the sand helps … I would advocate drawing this in the team room.
Professor Uma Kanjilal was a visitor to the University of Canberra today (12 May 2009). She will be at the University for two days and is making a number of presentations. Her first presentation, the subject of this blog post, was a discussion of the Open Educational Resource Movement in India.
Additional information about Professor Kanjilal can be found in the blog post by Tom Worthington and this Digital Learning article.
Her Powerpoint presentation provided some demographic information about education in India as the foundation for her discussion of open education initiatives. The presentation covered:
- Democratisation of knowledge issues
- National programs
- Open Access, Open Source and Open Resources
- Examples of work in progress
- Issues and challenges
During her presentation Professor Kanjilal drew attention to:
Sarva Siksha Abhiyan
The National Knowledge Commission
The National Mission on Education through ICT
Brihaspati and VMutki
The National Program on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL)
NCERT Online Textbooks
In the conclusion to her talk, Profesor Kanjilal discussed some of the issues and challenges of such a large scale undertaking. She noted that:
- The programs are in a nascent stage of development.
- Much of the work is based on Web 1.0 tools and there is a need to migrate to Web 2.0
- Resources are not available under Creative Commons’ licences at present.
- There is considerable discussion about how to enhance and relate the resources to teaching-learning process.
- There is great interest in how to cater for heterogeneous group needs and the role that the customisation of resources will play in OER evelopment.
I left the presentation with a sense of awe about what had been achieved and wit a real sense of the opportunities we have to develop our reach at the University of Canberra.
