Scoring Shot (Bowler) : Bat run conceded of a Single Ball .
They are 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 6s , & any added runs acquired from overthrows. Extras are not added to Bowler’s scoring shot.
Scoring Rate : Balls divided by number Scoring Shots conceded. On average we can assess how much a bowler bowls to concede a scoring shot.
Scoring Rate in Singles & Boundaries
In this we can find a Fielding Team’s defense progression, and identify which bowler is containing (more balls per scoring shot), and when, or which bowler is leaking constant runs (less balls per scoring shot played) and in which part of game.
If we observe Progression Over chart, where each ball is recorded, then it becomes helpful for captains to apply the right pressure by employing the appropriate bowler, and not to lose control over the game.
This is the most accurate indicator in a Cricket match.
