# Economy Rate (Econ) Calculator (Cricket)

## What is “Economy Rate” in Cricket?

Economy rate is the average number of runs conceded for each over bowled. Strike Rate is a measurement of a bowler’s average number of balls bowled for every wicket taken.
A lower economy rate is seen as preferable – it means that the bowler is able to get more batsmen out with fewer balls. The statistic is considered to be more important in shorter games than longer test matches.

## Equation

In Cricket, Economy Rate is calculated as:
$\text{Economy Rate} = \frac{\text{Runs Conceded}}{\text{Overs Bowled}}$

## Example

If a bowler bowled 52.5 overs and allowed 526 runs in that time, then:
Economy Rate = 526 / 52.5
Economy Rate = 8.06
Therefore, the bowler’s economy rate is 8.06.
