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