What is Net Run Rate (NRR) in Cricket?
Net Run Rate (NNR) is calculated by subtracting, the run scored divided by overs faced and runs conceded divided by overs bowled.
How to calculate Net Run Rate in Cricket?
Please find below the video to understand NRR:
Net Run Rate Formula:
(Runs Scored/Overs Faced) – (Runs Conceded/Overs Bowled)
INDW 244/7 (50) PAKW 137 (43)
INDW won by 107 runs
NZW 260/9 (50) INDW 198 (46.4)
NZW won by 62 runs
Net Run Rate (NRR) Calculation
= (249+203)/(50+50) – (142+265)/(50+50)
= 4.52 – 4.07
1. Duckworth-Lewis(D/L) Method IND 300/7 (50) Before applying D/L Method, PAK Needed to score 301 in 50 overs. After applying D/L Method, PAK Needed to score 275 in 40 overs. In this case we’ll be considering 40 overs for both teams in calculating NRR.
2. If a match is abandoned as a No Result or ended in Super Over, none of the runs scored or overs bowled count towards Net Run Rate calculation.
