What is an acceptable, or even good, strike rate for batsmen in ODIs?
And what do you classify as poor?
Obviously it varies if the pitch is flat, how many wickets lost, quality (or lack thereof) of bowling, stage of the innings (batting PP, last 10 overs) etc.
For me on a good batting wicket with wickets in hand, then the batsmen should at least have a strike rate of at least 75 to 80. Last 10 overs, at least scoring at 90 IMO.
This thread was a result of the Michael Clarke thread.
Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
