1ball(runs)% |
% runs scored of 1^{st} ball of an over…look at number of ball bowled and find the average score of each ball. From Batting perspective how many times a teams are able to score from these balls – from Bowling perspective for the same balls how times bowlers and their team have prevented opposition Batsmen from scoring. |

% wkts on 1^{st} ball of an over |

6ball(wkts)% |
% wkts on 1^{st} ball of an over |

6+/over % |
6 => runs conceded in an over |

10+/over % |
10 = > runs conceded in an over |

**The Gap Factor**

All teams want to win a cricket match, or at least not lose one.

Batting side(offense) will always want to score more runs in less balls, at same time lose less wickets. On the other hand the bowling side(defense) wants to pick wickets in less balls, and concede less runs.

This reflects their strength and weakness. To find out how they go about it in terms of data/stats/numbers – we deviced something called “The gap factor”.

Its similar to NRR but with only one calculation – minus the batting performance with bowling performance. If the numbers is in plus figure than that team is doing well in that particular indicator, but if the numbers are in minus figure than that team is performing poorly in that department.
