India's legendary cricketer Rahul Dravid has been invited to speak at an MIT sports analytics conference, which for the first time is hosting a panel discussion on cricket.


The theme of this conference on April 8 and 9 is ‘Show Me the Data.’

At this virtual conference, Dravid will also be joined by former cricketer and coach Gary Kirsten and former England women’s cricketer and commentator Isa Guha.

Alok R Singh, director at Dell Technologies, will moderate this panel discussion on ‘Howzdata: How Analytics is Revolutionising Cricket.’

He has been actively involved in developing youth cricket in the US.

This high-profile discussion on the role of analytics in cricket is expected to offer several insights into modern-day cricket and its popular leagues like Indian Premier League (IPL), the media release said.

The other sessions on major sports in the US like basketball, football, baseball will also offer learning for cricket to use analytics and technology.
