AI's Winning Streak: Boosting England Women's Cricket

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken a leap from the tech world to the cricket pitch, aiding the England women's cricket team in clinching a T20 series victory against Australia.


This revelation comes from the team's head coach, Jon Lewis, who discovered the power of AI during his coaching stint with UP Warriorz in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) in India.

The AI technology, developed by London-based company PSi, has also been utilised by Steve Borthwick, the England Rugby Union coach, and has proven to be a game-changer in the world of sports.


So how does AI contribute to a cricket win? According to Lewis, the AI system played a crucial role in the decision-making process when two equally talented players were up for selection in a game against Australia during the Women’s Ashes last year.

"We are able to run simulated teams versus the simulated opposition to give us an idea about how those teams may match up against each other," Lewis explained. He further elaborated that the system runs approximately 250,000 simulations per team, considering all possible permutations of the game.


However, Lewis was quick to clarify that AI doesn't replace traditional selection methods but rather complements them. "Obviously we’re on the ground with the people and that’s probably the first thing that we look to in terms of selection," he said.


Despite its limitations, AI's contribution to the England women's cricket team's success is undeniable. Lewis concluded, "It can help selections, but my go-to would be get your people right first, get them all in the right head space, get their games in order, and then use data to support around selection."
