My question is based on cricket NRR calculation. Below is the scenario explained:

  1. Match start time 7:45am, date 13-08-2017, match overs 16 decided by organizer.
  2. Match between team A and team B
  3. Team A had time delay and penalty of 1 overs reduction was announced by organizer
  4. Team B played complete 16 overs, whereas team A played only 15 overs

Question: The run rate for Team A should be calculated considering 15 overs or 16 overs?

  • Do you have a link to the regulations for the competetion as they will say what should happen in this case. I would suspect there part of NRR would be calculated using 15 overs. – Ben Whyall Aug 16 '17 at 10:53

The run rate should always be calculated according to the actual number of overs involved. NRR will be calculated by number of overs batted (not how many were allocated at the start), RRR will be calculated by number of overs remaining (not how many would have been remaining if there were no reductions).

This means too that if a team is bowled out in fewer overs than the innings allowed, the NRR will be calculated by how long they batted, not how long they could have batted.

However, I'm sure it's possible to have a tournament with playing conditions which stipulate a different NRR calculation for statistical purposes. Can't really think why, but it's possible. You should check the tourname PQs to make sure there's no such clause.
