Cricket Bowling Average Calculator



What is Bowling Average?

Bowling Average is a cricket statistic used put a player’s number of runs conceded in comparison with their number of wickets they have taken.

It is intended to be a more accurate representation of a player’s abilities than only the total number of runs conceded or the total number of wickets taken alone, as it compares their number of hits with their relative time bowling.


In Cricket, bowling average is calculated as follows:

Bowling Average = Runs Conceded / Wickets Taken


If a player has conceded 99 runs has taken 8 wickets in that time, then:

99 divided by 8 is 12.375

Therefore, the player’s bowling average 12.375
