Parameters used

For various reasons, key ODI evaluation parameters such as Strike rate and the number of wickets taken lose some of their weight when it comes to Twenty20. This is not to say that taking wickets isn't important in this format. But the weightage given to the strike rate and the number of wickets taken is not as much as it would be in an ODI.

Wickets help reduce the run rate, sure, but perhaps not so much when every other batsmen who walks is going to try and blast the ball anyway. It helps a lot more if you have the ability to tie the same batsman down, as against getting him out but having someone else come in and smash you.

Tests and ODI's give the fielding side a lot more time to nullify a spell of heavy hitting from the batsmen. If someone scores a quick 50 in say 30 balls in an ODI and the bowling side manages to get him out, they have time to recuperate and nullify the damage, which would not be the case in a Twenty20 game. It follows the same logic as why a wicket in the 47th over is important, but not as important as a wicket in, say, the 5th or the 6th over. So, the economy rate assumes more importance than the number of wickets or the strike rate.

As worked out with the batting rankings, the real value of the performances in each of these parameters comes to light only when equated with how much it adds to the respective team’s performance.

So broadly, the Squadstats bowler rankings evaluates bowlers on their economy rate, strike rate and the wickets taken, processes this information and ranks players based on how much value they have added to their teams.

The ranking is broadly classified into two tables, the first ranking bowlers on the basis of their performance in domestic Twenty20 games, and the second which takes into consideration their performances in the International circuit.
