Net Run Rate in cricket

Net Run Rate has been playing vital role in deciding the team advancing to next stage in competitions like World cup, T20 World cup, Indian premier league and so on. They are used in T20 and 50-over ODI cricket in the manner similar to goal difference in football(soccer). In simple words its the difference of run rate of a team and the run rate of the opposing team. If a team gets all out before batting for prescribed overs (20 overs in T20 or 50 over in ODI), then the run rate is calculated by dividing the runs scored by whole prescribed overs.

How is net run rate in cricket calculated ? Calculation of Net run rate step by step:

1) First of all get the total runs scored by the team. Wickets are never counted.
2) Get the total overs batted by the team. If teams bat all overs then all 50 or 20 overs are taken. If they are all out then still all 50 or 20 over is taken. In case team batting second, only the overs it batted is taken.
3) Divide the total runs scored by the overs.
4) Net Run Rate for a team is the difference of its total run rate and another teams total run rate in the match. In case of loss, its negative, 0 when a draw and positive when won.
5) In a series, net run rate is the average of rates of the team. Its equal to sum of run rates in each match divided by total matches.

In recent T20 World cup it has been a vital factor. In IPL 2009, Deccan Chargers qualified for the semis though they had same points as Punjab due to better net run rate.

  1. IF ONE TEAM SCORES 120 FOR 6 AFTER 20 OVERS AND THE SECOND TEAM 120 ALL OUT AFTER 10 OVERS HOW WOULD THEY HAVE THE SAME RUN RATE

    ReplyDelete
  2. Yeah both have same run rates.
    The run rate of first team = 120/ 20 overs = 6

    And for next team as its all out, the over is counted as 20 (Read step 2 above). So, 120/20=6. Hope you understand,

  3. If one scores 170 for 5 in 20overs and second team scores 121 for 7 in 20 overs what is the net runrate

    1. 8.500-6.05
      so first team's NRR:+2.450
      and second teams's NRR:-2.450
      '+' sign for the winning team
      '-' sign for the losing team
      Difference between total run rate between two teams in a match is the net run rate of the team along with its sign as mentioned above. Hope this helped!

  4. So simple,
    Run rate for first team = 170/20= 8.5
    Run Rate for second team = 121/20 = 6.05

    Net Run rate for first team = 8.5-6.05 = +2.45
    Net Run rate for second team = -2.45

  5. If one scores 170 for 5 in 20 overs and second team scores 121 for 7 in 19.1 overs what is the net runrate

    ReplyDelete
  6. Your question is not clear. Actually, Net run rate is calculated at the end of match so after 19.1 ... cannot understand. Anyway I have shown this way.

    First team run rate = 175/20 = 8.75
    Second team run rate = 121/19= 6.33

    So Net run rate for 1st = 8.75-6.33= +2.41
    Net run rate of second = -2.41

      Team A
      Run Rate: 120/20=6.00
      Team B
      Run Rate:120/10=12.00
      NRR for A:6.00-12.00=-6.00
      NRR for B:12.00-6.00=+6.00

  20. What is the run rate when a team score 97 in 12.2 overs. They lost 6 wickets but had won the match.

    ReplyDelete
  21. If team A scores 120 runs after 20 overs and team B wons the match by scoring 121 runs in 10 overs by loosing no wicket . Then what will be the net run rate of team B

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Net run rate of Team B would be 121/10 - 120/20 = 6.1. Wickets don't matter and it would be 6.1 even though they lost some wickets

    ReplyDelete
  23. If there are two teams fighting for one spot,
    For eg: Team A- they have 4 points n NNR is +2.05
    And, Team B - have 2 points n NNR is -1.90 and the last match is between Team A vs Team B,but for some reason Team A doesn't play the match n Team B gets Walkover, so in that case is there will be any effect in d NNR for Team A?
