Our Twenty Twenty International (T20I) ratings take into account all matches from the first T20I match on January 5, 1971 till the below mentioned
last update date. To qualify for the rating, a player must have played at least 20 innings against the
Top Teams (TT). TT may be found in the last section of the rating.
*Note: All T20I Ratings are updated till 2022-08-14
Best Strike Rates
The first list simply gives you the batsmen with best strike rates in T20I cricket. The second list gives you the batsmen with best Relative Strike Rates (R SR). How it is calculated is explained in the highlighted sections. Only batsmen with more than 1,000 runs and average of more than 20.00 are considered for both lists.
TOP 10 T20I BATSMEN WITH BEST STRIKE RATES
The Comparative Strike Rate (C SR) for batsmen is calculated by taken into account two factors:-
- First is the SR of batsmen at particluar positions (1-11) in a decade.
- Second is the SR of the opposition bowlers at Home, in Asia or outside Asia; whichever is applicable.
- The SR of the opposing team’s bowlers is also calculated by decades.
- Higher C SR suggests that the scoring rate was high in the above mentioned factors.
- The batsmen’s points will thus be decreased accordingly.
- Lower C SR means the opposite.
The Relative Strike Rate (R SR) is calculated using the C SR. Its formula is (Batsman’s SR/His C SR)*A Constant Factor. This constant doesn’t affect the rating as it is the same for everone. If your C SR is comparatively high, your R SR will be low; which is worse for batsmen. Broadly speaking, the points to note are:-
- Opening batsmen are at a disadvantage because of the first powerplay when SR is high.
- Earlier batsmen have a slight advantage as Strike Rates have improved with time.
- Batsmen who have played more in unfavourable conditions.
- Batsmen who have played more against top opposition than weaker teams.
