The batting strike rate signifies the rate at which a batsman scores runs. We can see the strike rate of batsmen for limited overs cricket is far higher than test matches, where they'll score runs slowly.

By definition, batting Strike Rate is the total number of runs a batsman will score if he faces 100 balls. If a batsman has batting strike rate 300 means, he scored runs three times than the number of balls he faced.

It's easy to calculate batting strike rate with the below formula,

Batting S/R = (No. or runs scored/No. of balls faced) x 100
