How do you calculate a bowling strike rate in cricket?
A bowlers strike rate is calculated by dividing the number of balls he or she has bowled by the number of wickets taken with those balls.
For example if a bowler has bowled 2000 balls in his career and has taken 50 wickets, he has a bowling strike rate of 40.00. In other words the bowler has taken, on average, a wicket every 40 balls.
Mathematics play an important role in cricket.I think most mathematics is used in cricket only.It is used to calculate the over rate (total number of overs bowled by a bowling side in one hour) by dividing the number of time with the overs.It is also used to find the run rate of the bowler (total number of runs conceded by a bowler per one over of his career) by dividing the number of runs with…
SR represents the batsman's Strike Rate. The Strike Rate is generally the speed that the batsman scores per ball faced. It is calculated as a percent per 100 balls. Example: If a batsman scored 35 runs off 58 deliveries, his Strike Rate would be 60.3%. This would be calculated as shown: 35/58 = 0.603(x100) = 60.3.
The run rate, in a game of cricket, is the average number of runs that a batsman (or the batting side) scores in a six-ball over. The run rate is usually rounded to two decimal places. For example, in a recent match, 71 runs were scored by one team in 33.1 overs, giving a run rate of 71/(((33 x 6) + 1)/6) = 2.14 runs per over.
The highest strike rate recorded by a person in an innings in twenty world cup was 414.28 by Dwayne Smith. He scored 29 runs of 7 balls. It was against Bangladesh in 2007 T20 world cup. The next best strike rate was by Yuvraj Singh in a match against England where he hit 58 runs in 16 balls with a strike rate of 362.5
According to the laws of physics they would fall at the same rate and land at the same time. However, all variables are not the same. The lightness of the tennis ball would leave it more apt to be affected by winds aloft, including updrafts. Additionally, the fuzzy covering of the tennis ball would make it subject to more wind resistance than the bowling ball, thereby slowing it down more. They would still strike the…
Will a bowling ball and a piece of paper fall at the same rate if dropped near the surface of the moon?
A bowling ball and a piece of paper will fall at the same rate on the Moon. This is because gravity pulls at a constant rate. The force of gravity depends on the mass of the Moon, which is constant, and not on the mass of each object falling. On Earth, the piece of paper will fall much slower than the bowling ball because of air resistance. Because there is no air on the Moon…
