How to calculate strike rate of a batsman

  • Last Updated : 31 Mar, 2021

Given two integers A and B representing the run scored and ball faced by a batsman in a Cricket match. The task is to calculate the Strike rate of the batsman. 

Batting strike rate is a measure of how quickly a batsman achieves the primary goal of batting. It is mathematically equal to: 
Strike Rate = (Runs Scored / Balls faced) * 100

Examples:  

Input: A = 264, B = 173 
Output: 152.601 
Explanation: 
Srike rate of batsman is equal to (264 / 173) * 100 = 162.601



Input: A = 0, B = 10 
Output: 0.00 

Approach:

  1. Use the formula for the strike rate to calculate the strike rate. 
    Strike Rate = (Runs Scored / Balls faced) * 100
  2. Return the strike rate in float data type format.

Here is the implementation of the above approach:  

C++




// C++ program to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
float strikerate(int bowls, int runs)
{
    float z;
    z = (float(runs) / bowls) * 100;
    return z;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int A, B;
    A = 264;
    B = 173;
 
    cout << strikerate(B, A)
         << endl;
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
class GFG{
     
// function to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
static float strikerate(float bowls, float runs)
{
    float z;
    z = (runs / bowls) * 100;
    return z;
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int A, B;
    A = 264;
    B = 173;
 
    System.out.println(strikerate(B, A));
}
}

Python3




# Python3 program to calculate strike
# rate of a batsman
 
# function to calculate strike
# rate of a batsman
def strikerate(bowls, runs):
 
    z = (float(runs) / bowls) * 100;
    return z;
 
# Driver Code
A = 264;
B = 173;
print(strikerate(B, A));

C#




// C# program to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
using System;
class GFG{
     
// function to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
static float strikerate(float bowls,
                        float runs)
{
    float z;
    z = (runs / bowls) * 100;
    return z;
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void Main()
{
    int A, B;
    A = 264;
    B = 173;
 
    Console.Write(strikerate(B, A));
}
}

Javascript




<script>
 
// Javascript program to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
 
// function to calculate strike
// rate of a batsman
function strikerate(bowls, runs)
{
    let z;
    z = (runs / bowls) * 100;
    return z.toFixed(3);
}
 
// Driver code   
let A, B;
A = 264;
B = 173;
 
document.write(strikerate(B, A));
 
// This code is contributed by divyesh072019
 
</script>
Output: 
152.601

 

Time Complexity: O (1)
