What the stats mean for Pakistan’s chase in the Champions Trophy
The last two months have been a roller coaster of emotions for Pakistan cricket.
After losing to Bangladesh in the first-ever Champions Trophy, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the board itself are facing immense scrutiny.
It is now up to them to make the right decisions and execute on those decisions.
With the first match between the two sides scheduled for the end of March, the pressure is on the players to perform in a meaningful manner.
It’s not just about a chance to win a trophy, but a chance for the team to prove themselves.
It has been a difficult task for the players as their performances have been inconsistent.
With that in mind, we have been analysing the data and we believe that it is worth highlighting.
A quick look at the stats to understand the dataA quick glance at the statistics will help us understand how the players are performing in the upcoming Champions Trophy.
The stats we will be analysing include the run-rate, the batting average, the strike rate, the total runs scored and the wickets won.
A Quick Look at the DataWe have put together a few key numbers to show you what the stats are saying.
The run-ratesThe run rate is the number of runs that Pakistan have been able to score in a match.
It means how many runs have been scored in one match by a team.
It also means how long a team has been in the game.
It can be broken down by batting or bowling the same number of overs.
There is no difference between the run rate and the total score.
A good example is India’s run-Rate against Bangladesh in their first-match Champions Trophy match in October 2016.
India scored a whopping 1,935 runs in their opening match against Pakistan.
They scored 619 in their match against Bangladesh but lost that match on a wicket.
The batting averageThe batting averages are the batting averages of the team that scored the most runs in the last two matches.
This is also known as the strike ratio.
This statistic is based on the number (runs scored / total) of runs scored in the previous two matches, and the strike-rate of that team.
The two figures should be the same.
There are also two more statistics we are looking at: the average number of balls a team gets through to an opponent (B-Rate) and how many batsmen a team is able to put through to a target (Target B-Rate).
Both numbers are based on batting and bowling runs and are calculated by dividing the number used by the number required to score the target.
The target B-rate is based solely on the batting and scoring of the players.
The Target B-rates are not affected by the team’s runs scored or the number and type of balls they have to bat.
The average batting B- Rate for India is over 300, and it is around 200 runs higher than the average strike-ratio of Bangladesh.
The difference in the batting B Rate is mainly due to the quality of the batsmen.
The total runs playedThe total run-plays is the average run-play of the current batting team and the batting team.
We are talking about runs that a team can score.
The total runs are calculated based on all the runs scored, no matter which batsman is on deck.
India has an average of over 300 runs per innings, and this is due to how many wickets they are scoring.
The wickets a team scoresIndia’s wickets are the average runs they are able to bow in the match.
We have the same wickets on target, no. 2.
The batsmen that are able put through the target number of wickets have a wickets-per-over ratio of 2.71.
This means that they are bowling a few more overs than the target, and are therefore able to get more runs through.
The overall average of wicket-per inningsThis number is calculated based only on the total number of bowlers who bowted in the innings.
The overall average is based upon the number bowlers bowled in the entire match, and not the number that bowled one individual.
The bowling average for the bats is also not included.
The batting average is also included, but it is not included as the batsman has to be on the field to score runs.
The target B/Target A ratioThe target/target B ratio is the batting/ball-scoring ratio.
It represents how much a team would be able to gain by bowling the ball to an opposing team’s batsmen in the next few overs.
This target ratio is based purely on the bats, not the runs they have bowled so far.
It only considers the batsmanship of the individual batsmen and does not take into account the number or type of wides, or the bowling pace of the bowler.
For example, the target B ratio
