Net Run Rate Calculator (Cricket)

What is Net Run Rate?

Net Run Rate is a cricket statistic used to put runs scored in comparison with the number of overs faced.
It is intended to be an indicator of a team’s abilities.


In Cricket, Net Run Rate  is calculated as follows:

Net Run Rate = (Total Runs Scored / Total Overs Faced) – (Total Runs Conceded /Total Overs Bowled)


If a team has scored 227 runs and has faced 5 overs in that time, while at the same time conceded 198 runs in 6 overs bowled then:

227 divided by 5 is 45.4

198 divided by 6 is 33

Therefore, the team’s net run rate is 12.4
