The HCL CA DataJam 2020 is coming in September!

In March 2020 the HCL Cricket Australia DataJam was unfortunately cancelled but I am delighted to say that under a new online / webinar format we are ready to go again.

A massive thank you and acknowledgement to Cricket Australia, HCL, 7NEWS sports presenter Matt Shirvington and all of the teams who have shown great patience and perseverance to get this valuable event running again.

We are massively looking forward to understanding how the Australian Head Coach Justin Langer and his team interpret the data and presentations.

Please note that due to the sensitivity of the data this is a invite only event.


Precision sourcing have teamed up with Cricket Australia, HCL and Facebook to bring you HCL CA DataJam 2020. Cricket Australia will be providing the teams with ‘in game’ data that focuses around actions taken by players within a cricket game. The teams will then be tasked with coming up with valuable insights that are presented back to a panel of cricket and data experts. Event details are below!

What is The HCL-CA DataJam?

This is a type of hackathon focused on sporting specific data sets. The outcome produces visualisations, analytics and insights in order to help the Australian Cricket team hopefully win the 2020 T20 world cup. A DataJam is a technically orientated event where people solve problems using data sets

So simply put it is a hackathon with data. In our eye’s hackathons were created for hacking and web development so we thought we would create a new name for the data world, hence DataJam. A group of analysts and statisticians coming together to create actionable insights from a data set.

HCL is an esteemed part of the panel of the judges for this DataJam and will team up with Cricket Australia and Precision to leverage the power of data and derive implementable insights for Cricket, benefiting every aspect of the game. We are also grateful to Fair Play who are the provider of the technology on which Cricket Australia capture match data.


Due to the sensitivity of the data this is a invite only event. Keep up to date with all the action by following this page and following us on Linked In.


You can host an event, attend an event, speak at an event, blog or give us an idea and we can partner with you to create an event.  The opportunities are endless. The key factor is that Precision Sourcing events have to be unique and be true to our purpose of ‘helping talent achieve’.
