If you had to choose a batsman for your team, which of the following would you choose?

Batsman A: Scored back-to-back half-centuries in the last two ODIs

Batsman B: Scored 0 and 2 in the same ODIs

If you want to choose batsman A. Think again. Wondering why?

Well, these were actual ODIs played between India vs New Zealand in 2010. And here is the current career record of these two Indian players.

Batsman A: Played 34 ODI innings and scored around 700 runs with an average of 24.

Batsman B: Played over 200 ODI innings and scored almost 12000 runs with an average of 59.

To make the right choice in Cricket, you must look beyond the batsman’s short-term performance.

One has to look at:

  • The Long-term record of the batsman
  • Technique and stroke playing abilities
  • Suitability for the playing conditions
  • Complementary skill sets vs. other batsmen

Fund A, B and C below were the top 3 funds in an equity funds category in 2017. Would you choose to invest in these funds based on this performance?
