Batting

Pressure Impact or absorbed the most pressure

This calculates the pressure of falling wickets each batsman successfully absorbs in the match within its specific context. It uses the “fall of wickets” column to do so along with the match standards.

Partnership-Building Impact

If two batsmen are involved in a partnership deemed significant within the context of the match, they are entitled to the Partnership-Building Impact .

Runs Tally Impact

Different from regular runs tally in that here the runs scored are calculated as a ratio within the context of team totals in the match. This provides a much truer picture than plain runs tallies.

Strike Rate Impact

This measures the strike rate of a batsman as a ratio against the average strike rate of the match. In Test cricket, this gets measured in more exceptional circumstances than in limited-overs cricket.

New-Ball Impact

This measures the ability of a batsman to cope with the new ball, occupy the crease and score runs.

Chasing Impact

This measures the ability of a batsman to chase in the second innings of a limited-overs match.

Batting Impact

This is the sum of the Runs Tally, Strike Rate, Pressure, Partnership Building, Chasing and New Ball Impact .

Impact of over 1

An impact of 1 is mathematically the minimum impact a player has to accomplish in a match for it to not be considered a failure (in that match). This is calculated, like everything else in the system, within the context of each match.

Failure Rate (Batting)

When a batsman has a Batting Impact of less than 1 it is deemed as a failure.

Bowling

Partnership-Breaking Impact

If a bowler breaks any partnership deemed significant within the context of the match, he or she is entitled to the partnership-breaking impact .

Top-Middle Order Wicket Impact

If a bowler dismisses any batsman batting at positions 1 to 7, he is entitled to this impact.

Lower-Order Wicket Impact

If a bowler dismisses any batsman batting at positions 8 to 11, he is entitled to this impact.

Pressure-Building Impact

Taking more than one wicket within a narrow range of runs (determined by the match context) to put opposition under mathematical pressure (of falling wickets).

Economy Impact

This measures the economy rate of a bowler as a ratio against the average economy rate of the match. In Test cricket, this gets measured in more exceptional circumstances than in limited-overs cricket.

Bowling Impact

This is the sum of the Top/Middle Order Wickets, Lower Order Wickets, Pressure Building, Partnership Breaking and Economy Impact .

Failure Rate (Bowling)

When a bowler has a Bowling Impact of less than 1 it is deemed as a failure.

Series-Defining Performance ( SD )

The most important measure in this system – a high impact performance in a match that enables the player’s team to win or draw level the series or (less often) change the momentum in a series. Also awarded to other series where a player dominates more emphatically in 2 matches or more against an A-grade team. This is the true legacy of a player, in this system.

Match Impact

This is the sum of the Batting, Bowling, Fielding, Wicketkeeping and Captaincy Impact.

Failure Rate (Match)

When a player has a Match Impact of less than 1 it is deemed as a failure.

Career Impact

This is the sum of the Match Impact plus the Series-Defining/Tournament-Defining Bonus.

All-Round Impact

For any player to qualify for an all-rounder impact, he or she should have a batting impact > 1 and a bowling impact > 1.
