The traditional way of team selection in the game of cricket requires lot of expertise and consumes a lot of time. To make this process simpler and easy for the selection committee, an Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference Model is developed that considers various parameters of a player. Using the player parameters, he/she is clustered and rated by the use of Fuzzy rules into different categories as per his/her performance throughout the career. The player data along with their rating are sent into an Android application that does the task of team selection. This would ease out the work of the selection committee.
