Definition – What is “Batting Strike Rate” in Cricket?

Batting Strike Rate (BSR) is a measurement of how frequently the batsman scores runs.
It is a measurement of runs scored per 100 overs faced.
A batsman with a high strike rate is considered to score more runs each time they are at bat.
Strike rate is a more important statistic in shorter games or games with limited overs.

Formula – How to calculate BSR

Batting Strike Rate = (Runs Scored x 100) ÷ Balls Faced


  • “Runs Scored” is the number of runs scored by the batsman.
  • “Balls Faced” is the number of balls faced by the batsman.


If a batter has scored 145 runs and faced 298 balls in that time, then:
Strike Rate (Batting) = (145 x 100) ÷ 298
Strike Rate (Batting) = 14,500 ÷ 298
Strike Rate (Batting) = 48.66
Therefore, the player’s batting strike rate is 48.66
