Abstract: This paper is about a model that can predict the projected score of 1st inning as well as the winner in a IPL cricket match. The performance of model depends on various features like wickets taken in last 5 overs, runs scored in last 5 overs, overs, overall score and wickets at current ball. The proposed model contains data from IPL matches played between years 2008 and 2019. This paper will give us step by step insights on how one can predict projected score of 1st inning while the match is still in progress. Linear Regression algorithm is used to predict the score. This model explains about 75.226% of data. The model specifically emphasize on using the data from past 5 overs to predict what might be the projected score of the match which has not been considered in any existing model. Using this model, we can get good insight during the match on how much score will the current batting team obtain.
