View Full Version : Bowling economy rates

Although the bowling economy rates not important in first class games as strike rate or wickets, still it gives a good idea as to how disciplined a bowler had bowled his spells.

And Talha Jubair had given away 66 runs in his 13 overs for only 1 wicket at an economy rate of over 5 runs an over.

In contrast to that, Alamgir Kabir gave away only at over a 4.6 runs an over.

Fahim Muntasir also gave away runs almost at a 5 runs an over, but he took 3 wickets.

I am not counting Enamul Haque (3.5) and Manjurul Islam (2.5) because they are already established bowlers.

On longer version games, under 3 is good. under 4 is not so good, rather ok. But over 4 is just too expensive.

Thats my judgement.
