You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

November 4, 2009
Tendulkar acknowledges the crowd upon making 17000 runs in ODIs

*Aaila world record!

Tomorrow, he may or may not cross 17000 runs in ODI cricket, but here’s the story so far:

868 points for appearing in 434 matches (1989-2009)

8496.5 points for 16993 runs scored

1540 points for 154 wickets taken

524 points for 131 catches taken

-60 points for 20 dismissals for a score of 0

Bonus Points

925.5 points for 1851 fours

177 points for 177 sixes

176 points for 44 centuries

6 points for three 150+ scores

48 points for 24 maiden overs bowled

8 points for four 4 wicket hauls

8 points for two 5 wicket hauls

354 points for 59 Man of the Match Awards

Points for Strike Rate (where minimum number of balls faced is 20)

-18 points for 18 performances where strike rate is between 50-60

-22 points for 11 performances where strike rate is between 40-50

-33 points for 11 performances where strike rate is lesser than 40

Economy Rate points (applicable  where minimum number of overs bowled is 5 )

45 points for 45 performances where economy rate is between 3.5-4.5 rpo

34 points for 17 performances where economy rate is between 3.49-2.5 rpo

3 points for 1 performance of economy rate lesser than 2.5 rpo

-9 points for 9 performances of economy rate between 7 & 8 rpo

-3 points for 1 performance of economy rate above 9 rpo

And we get a grand total of:

13250 points

*All these points are calculated according to this. It’s pretty incomplete because they do not reward high strike rates and our man has rampaged on quite a few occasions. Another major hindrance was the absence of stats related to run outs effected as fielder/collector and bails-disturber. Also discounted are stats such as maiden overs played out, batsmen dismissed for a duck, & bowling strike rate among many others. Another bad thing is that this comes out to a meager average of 30.52 points a match.
My thanks and blessings to Statsguru for this one.
