Enter the total runs scored and the total number of balls faced into the calculator to determine the strike rate.

Strike Rate Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a strike rate.

SR = RS / BF * 100

  • Where SR is the strike rate (%)
  • RS is the number of runs scored
  • BF is the number of balls faced

To calculate a strike rate, divide the number of runs scored by the number of balls faced, then multiply by 100.

What is a strike rate?


A strike rate is a term used in cricket to measure how often a hitter scores when at bat. In other words, the percentage of time a striker will score a run when facing a ball.

How to calculate strike rate?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate a strike rate.

First, determine the total number of balls faced. In this example, over the previous season, the player faced 500 balls.

Next, determine how many times the player scored in the same period. In this case, the number of times the player scored is 50.

Finally, calculate the strike rate using the formula above:

SR = RS / BF * 100

SR = 50 / 500 * 100

SR = 10 %
