This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a personal project I've been wanting to start for sometime.
I need an application/macro/software that can convert CricInfo's 'ball by ball commentary' into an individual standardised Microsoft Excel file. The format will need to be clear and concise and I will provide a rough template of what form this will take. Key considerations for the successful collaborator will be:
- A good communicator.
- Able to produce an application to navigate CricInfo's archive system and collect ball by ball commentary data for all past ODIs, Tests, T20s and domestic games for which they have ball by ball data.
- Ability for the application to navigate CricInfo's ball by ball commentary archive system into the future (even if it requires minor user input from this end), after delivery of the application.
Given the nature of the project someone who understands the game of cricket would be preferred as this will make the project a lot easier on both of us! If this phase of the project is promising there is the chance for more complex and interesting work down the road.
This is a personal project and not business related so the if the cost is too high then the project will sadly be delayed to a time when I can afford it.
Looking forward to working with the lucky collaborator!

Hey mate, I've done a large amount of web-scraping and data parsing from websites in the past so I'm sure I can get this done for you. Also, please refer to your PMB!
