The whole game is net run rate! But how to calculate the net run rate?

The final round of the T20 World Cup 2021 has begun. The teams for the semi-finals are almost complete. However, all eyes are on the remaining Group-2 matches. If Afghanistan defeats New Zealand on Sunday, India’s path to the semi-finals could be cleared.

Net run rate in T20 World Cup 2021

The T20 World Cup 2021 is now in its final stages. The semi-final teams are almost certain. However, all eyes are on the remainder of the Group 2 match. If Afghanistan defeats New Zealand on Sunday, India’s path to the semi-finals could be cleared. Meanwhile, these things are determined by the net-run rate (NRR). But first, let’s look at how this net-run rate works and how it affects whether you win or lose!

How can you find the net run rate?

When there is a major ICC tournament or more teams are playing together (IPL, Big Bash, Asia Cup), the net-run rate is very important. There is a lot of discussion about this right now during the T20 World Cup.

Total runs scored / Total overs played – Total runs lost / Total overs bowled = Net run rate

Net run rate

For example, if a team batted and scored 120 runs in 20 overs, the run rate was 6. However, when bowling lost all of the runs in 15 overs, the run rate was 8. In this case, the net run rate – 2.000 will be reached. If a team conceded only 100 runs in 20 overs after scoring 120 runs in 20 overs, its net-run rate would be +1.000. When the net run rate of both teams is calculated, the net run rate of the losing team should be subtracted from the net run rate of the winning team. When the winning team has +1.000 points and the losing team has -1.000 points in the points table, the net run rate of the winning team is 5 and that of the losing team is 4. This is the simplest method for calculating the net-run rate in any match. The difference in the case of NRR is that the fall of wickets makes no difference. If a team is unable to complete all of its overs, the same number of overs are counted. However, if the team batting first bats a full over, but the team batting second is all out for a low score, he can benefit from playing full overs in terms of net run rate.
