Calculate Net Run Rate In Cricket
Net run rate is a statistical method used in cricket to rank teams in case of a tie in points in a tournament or league. It is calculated by dividing the total runs scored by a team in all matches by the total number of overs faced by that team in all matches, and then subtracting the average runs per over conceded by that team.
The formula for calculating net run rate (NRR) is:
NRR = (Total runs scored by the team / Total overs faced by the team) – (Total runs conceded by the team / Total overs bowled by the team)
For example, let’s say Team A has scored 1000 runs in 20 overs in all their matches, and they have conceded 900 runs in 19.2 overs. Then, their net run rate would be:
NRR = (1000/20) – (900/19.2) = 50 – 46.875 = 3.125
The net run rate is usually expressed in runs per over, and it can be positive, negative, or zero. The team with the highest NRR is ranked higher in case of a tie in points with other teams in the tournament or league.
