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 considered a good metric for a player’s skill at a bowler.


In Cricket, bowling average calculates 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
