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.
Top Teams (TT)

Some sections consider performances only against the top teams. Here is some information about the Top Teams:-

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

  • Non Weak Teams are calculated in the same way as TT.
  • However, they are more in number.
