checkBowlerInForm {cricketr} | R Documentation |

## Check whether the bowler is In-Form or Out-Of-Form by looking at his last 10 percent scores

### Description

This function checks whether the bowler is In-Form or Out-Of-Form by doing hypothesis testing and generating a p-value. The last 10 percent of runs scored (sample) are used as a sample against the rest 90 percent of runs scored (population) by the bowler.A significance value of 0.05 is used. The lower tail is checked. The NULL hypothesis is that the bowler is In-Form with the sample mean being within 95 percent confidence interval. If the sample mean is outside this 95 percent range and the p-value is less than the significance value the bowler is considered to be Out-Of-Form

### Usage
