Brief explanation of the ratings is given before each section (Detailed Explanation). So, here are the Top 10 Asian Spin bowlers in matches Outside Asia in ODIs.

UC RATING

Points to note about ASIANS OUTSIDE ASIA 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.
