Kindly switch to Landscape Mode for better viewing experience

Our One Day International (ODI) ratings take into account all matches from the first ODI match on January 5, 1971 till the below mentioned last update date. Most of our ratings are dynamic, and as new matches are played, the rating of earlier bowlers may change if current bowlers set new benchmarks. Brief explanation of the ratings is given before each section (Detailed Explanation). So, here are the Top 15 Asian Fast bowlers in matches Outside Asia in ODIs.

*Note: All ODI Ratings are updated till 2024-06-09

FC RATING

Points to note about ASIANS OUTSIDE ASIA Rating:-

  • Unfavourable Conditions (UC) is Outside Asia for Spinnrs and In Asia for Pacers.
  • Favourable Conditions (FC) are the opposite.
  • This categorization has been done as there are more points for UC in our Overall Rating.

THE CRITERIA


The ASIANS OUTSIDE ASIA Rating is divided into 5 main sections:-

CRITERIA STAT POINTS
Prolific Wickets Taken 300.00
Consistent Average 200.00
Economic Strike Rate 200.00
Best Bowling Top Inns (Wkts) 150.00
Economic Bowling Top Inns (Eco) 150.00
The Trend Setter (TS)

TS is the player which does the best in a criteria. The rating of all other players are calculated taking the TS as the benchmark. Know All About TS. Here is an example:-

  • TS Ave: 25.00; Player X Ave: 30.00; Section Points: 300.00
  • TS Points: 300.00(Max); Player X Points: TS Ave/Ave X 300 = 25.00/30.00 X 300 = 250.00
  • Ratings of all sections are calculated similarly with Ave being replaced by the Criteria Stat.
  • Knock Out matches of T20 World Cup are also counted in TT.
Non Weak Teams (NWT)

Some sections consider performances only against Non Weak Teams. Here is some information about the Non Weak Teams:-

  • Win/Loss Ratio is used to determine Non Weak Teams.
  • The Non Weak Teams are calculated by decades.
  • A bowler’s performace is counted in NWT if it comes against the team in the specific decade.
