Cricket - Net Run Rate

(Our solution is based upon net run rate as described here

For each cricket fixture you can now record home and away values for Total Runs and Total Overs

Admin Home --> Results/Stats --> Results (for a date) -- for a fixture click on "cricket scoresheet"

At the bottom of the summary page you can enter:
1/ Home team total runs made.
2/ Home team total overs and balls received.
1/ Away team total runs made.
2/ Away team total overs and balls received.

If you enter figures and press update - then the system calculated home and away run rates will be seen on this page.

If you wish net run rates to be incorparated for divsion table/standings table ranking then go to:

Admin Home --> League Setup Wizard --> Scoring System --> "Click here to change scoring systems settings or to add a new scoring system" -->

then on the "Scoring system setup" page click on "edit" against the scoring system.

Under section Ranking, Tables/standings are ranked on - check the radio button - "Points - Net run rate".

Lower down this page in the Layout section: you can control where the run rate columns are displayed and the column text they will be described with.

For the ordering to be correct you will need to ensure run rates are enter for every fixture played for both home and away teams.
