One word: "Context"Are you saying the eye test is more significant than the data sets? That's pretty old school, but I like it. For instance, economy is great unless not getting wickets against is the opponent's strategy is just to burn overs until the match ends in a draw, in which case economy achieved by defensive batting and stalling is hurting rather than helping.
Not necessarily. It depends on how disciplined the batsman is, and how he prefers to play, so as to whether or not he'll eaft away at wide deliveries he cannot control, for example. One cannot "get outs to any ball", because some deliveries are very difficult to hit, (e.g., wide down the leg side.) If one does not care about getting bat on ball, but is content to runs byes to keep the score moving, they'll be fine.I get that, but IMHO, being "loose" and wild seems like it would make batsmen very uncomfortable when facing him because he can get outs on any ball, and that the fact they get big bombs off him or that they can get tips and deflections for boundaries and extras from regularly doesn't mean they can feel they also feel they can really handle themselves against him sufficiently to prolong a game against him to a win or a draw.
Also, keep in mind that batting generally gets easier relative to bowling as skill level increases. In club cricket, sub-100 scores are much more common at lower levels.
Only if one makes zero effort to understand and contextualise them.The data sets Economy and Average does not seem to me to reflect that he is effective at getting the game over despite giving up runs.
Depends on their toughness and discipline. Whilst much shorter term, you see batters in baseball swing at pitches that would have passed outside the strike zone, because there is a pressure to score before being struck out.Ok. I get that. I'm not sure why a pro necessarily has to yield to psychological pressure, but if you say that is happening, so be it.
Bowling strike rate. A person who actually wants to find out more about cricket would look up these terms themselves to see what they mean.Are you speaking about batting strike rate (runs/balls X100) or something else?
